DeAnna was Brad Womack’s last-dumpee standing on The Bachelor Season 11, then she became The Bachelorette for Season 4. After she broke up with Jesse Csincsak, DeAnna met and married teacher Stephen Stagliano, twin brother of The Bachelorette Season 5’s Michael Stagliano.
DeAnna and Stephen have a ton of friends across Bachelor Nation, and many weighed in with happy tweets after the Baby Stag news.
Trista Sutter, who has two children with her Season 1 Bachelorette husband Ryan Sutter, wrote, "WOOOHOOO! BEST news!!! Another #BachelorNation baby!!" DeAnna responded, “thanks!!! I've been dying to text you and tell you! ;)”
Bachelor 13 couple Jason Mesnick and Molly Mesnick welcomed their baby, Riley, back on March 14. Mama Molly wrote to DeAnna, “OMG @DeAnnaPappas we are so thrilled to hear the news!!!! Love you guys to pieces! Congrats times a million!!!!!”
DeAnna later said, “Now that the news is out, I'm ready to start picking brains on baby products!! What's the best?! What's "must haves"?!” Molly sprung into action, telling DeAnna, “I just sent you the longest email ever... ;)” DeAnna took some time, probably to read the long e-mail, and told her buddy, “Molly, you're THE BEST! ❤”
Jillian Harris, who dated Michael Stagliano on her Bachelorette season, tweeted, "I am so thrilled for @DeAnnaPappas & @StephenStag!!!! You two will make the most incredible and beautiful baby!!! ❤❤" DeAnna told Jillian she’ll be ordering everything from Jillian’s design company, Charlie Ford Vintage. Jillian replied, “ oh darling. We can't wait to dress that little nursery!” Expect that to get its own little photo spread in People magazine, when it happens!
Even the “suits” got in on the lovin’. ABC exec Robert "Millsy" Mills wrote, "congrats! This baby is so blessed to have such amazing parents. So so happy for you both." Bachelor creator Mike Fleiss added, “Congrats, Deanna and Stephen. Another Bachelor Baby!!!!!” Although Stephen isn’t technically an alum, he did make a guest appearance on Season 5.
Speaking of that season — and the brothers’ attempt to fool Jillian on which twin was which — one of the funniest tweets had to come from Michael Stag, who still gets confused with his bro. Replying to one congratulatory note, Michael wrote, “Thanks @DeAnnaPappas and I are so excited #HOWisthisstillhappening?”
Ha! But congrats also to you, Uncle Stag.
