7th Heaven star Beverley Mitchell and her husband, Michael, are expecting their first child in April 2013.
They've been together since Beverley was 20, which was almost 12 years ago. The actress is a new "mommy blogger" for People.com, and in her first post she writes about their "love at first sight" in college, their five years of dating, three-year engagement, four years of marriage, and now their impending arrival.
"Well if you twist my arm, we are thrilled to be welcoming a beautiful baby girl into our family!" Beverley writes. "And yes, she has already stolen my husband’s heart. He proudly shares the picture of our 4D ultrasound. I still find it a little creepy but cute at the same time, but he’s already in love. And for the first time I am okay with him loving someone more than me, though it is a little crazy since he has not met the little lady just yet. However, I completely understand because I already love her a whole lot too!"
Aww! Here are some of her observances about the changes of being pregnant:
• "I mean, hormones — forget about it! Sometimes I am just so baffled by myself that I feel like I’m having an out-of-body experience watching a crazy woman. Good news is, I usually settle back in pretty quickly. But I definitely have some epic moments and Michael is a saint for letting me have them."
• "My current wardrobe is a complete and utter fail that no longer fits like I remember. My food allergies have totally disappeared — turns out baby likes yogurt, eggs, cheese … all things I haven’t eaten in years because of my inability to process them. Bring on the pizza!"
It's a great first blog. Read it all for more. Congrats to the adorable family!
