Pregnancy is a magical time for expecting mothers — but it sounds like the magic has started to wear off for Bachelor and Dancing With the Stars vet Melissa Rycroft Strickland. Melissa and husband Tye Strickland will be welcoming their second child any day now, and for Melissa, the stork can’t get here soon enough.

Melissa and Tye are already parents to daughter Ava, who was born in February 2011, and they’ll soon be giving Ava a little brother. On April 16, Melissa took to Twitter to point out that her current pregnancy has now lasted longer than her first one. “Little man has officially cooked longer than his big sis did,” Melissa writes. “I know babies come when they're ready, but I'm ready to help him pack his bags!”

Ha! We love that Melissa is maintaining a sense of humor throughout her pregnancy, despite the fact that it’s been a long process. In fact, we had assumed that her tyke would arrive last month, so we can understand why Melissa is starting to get impatient. But we have a feeling that it will soon be worth the wait. (We know it’s easy for us to say!)

There have been quite a number of Bachelor Nation deliveries lately. DeAnna Pappas welcomed her first child in February, and Jesse Csincsak welcomed his second baby last month. Plus, Ashley Hebert and J.P. Rosenbaum recently announced their first pregnancy. It sounds like Melissa’s progeny is going to have a lot of options for potential playdates!
