Jade Roper and Tanner Tolbert Expecting First Child — Get the Details!


After last year’s baby boom, there’s been a bit of a lull — but not anymore!

Jade Roper and Tanner Tolbert just revealed they’re expecting their first child, a little over a year after the Bachelor in Paradise Season 2 couple tied the knot.

The couple, who celebrated their first anniversary in January, opened up about the moment they found out the exciting news via an at-home pregnancy test.

“Jade cried a little bit,” Tanner tells In Touch. “I was just really excited,”

Aww! So just how far along are they?

The mama to be just hit the 13-week mark of her pregnancy, and their little boy or girl — they don’t know the sex just yet — is set to arrive on September 14!

It’s still early, so Jade’s bump is still growing, but she and her 29-year-old hubby did show it off in a photoshoot this week.

She looks stunning, right? Plus, it’s adorable how excited the expectant dad is about his lady.

Actually, it sounds like the Bachelorette 2015 alum is ready for all that’s in store from fatherhood — except for one thing.

“I’ll do every other duty if it means no poopy diapers!” the Kansas City native admits, though his wife chimes in that due to his busy work schedule, she’ll “gladly take on most of the responsibility.”

He’s also a little wary of his lady’s plan to give birth at home.

“If the pregnancy is low-risk, I would love to have an at-home water birth,” she explains, adding, “But Tanner’s a little concerned.”

The couple have yet to post about the news on social media, but the Nebraska-raised gal did share a telling photo of herself on Instagram this week.

Alongside a shot of her beaming with happiness, she writes, “So many beautiful reasons to be happy.”

This has been a long time coming for the Tolberts, who told Wetpaint way back in September that a baby was coming sooner rather than later.

“We’re not building the house just for us to live in,” Tanner said at the time. “We want to fill it up sooner rather than later.”

The Bachelor beauty added, “Yeah, I’m ready. I have baby bump envy.”

They also revealed how many kids they’re hoping for in total.

“If they’re both girls to start, we’ve got to try for number three,” he explained, while the two also shared they’ve agreed on a “short list” of names, all original but not “super trendy or weird.”
