“Big Brother” couple Jessica Graf and Cody Nickson have a baby on the way!
On Monday, Graf broke the news on Instagram, sharing, “WE'RE PREGNANT! And I'm over the moon! I'm so excited to bring our first child into this life we have created together!”
“I've been pretty quiet on Instagram lately,” she continued. “I've been avoiding posting stories and photos as much as I normally do because we've been taking this time to really enjoy all the great blessings we have in our life ❤️ Considering our engagement was leaked before we could tell anyone, it's been so great to be able to share our new addition with our loved ones before making this announcement!”
Jessica also revealed that she is “a little over 11 weeks” and is expecting to give birth in April, “just two days before Codys birthday.”
She emphasized, “We're honored to be adding the FIFTH Big Brother baby to the world! We can't wait to meet you little one and we already love you more than anything! 👶🏽 #MomToBe #BabyOnBoard.”
As for how they found out they were expecting, Jessica told People magazine, “We actually found out while watching the finale of 'The Bachelorette.' I wasn't feeling well at all and decided to take a test even though I was pretty sure I wasn't pregnant! I didn't tell Cody I was taking a test. I just went and laid back in bed with him, pregnancy test in my hoodie pocket. The show distracted me so I had forgotten it was in there until after it ended. I pulled the stick out and immediately gasped at the result!”
As for the sex of their baby, Jessica commented, “We don't know the gender just yet! We are having a gender-reveal brunch the day after our wedding so that all our family and friends can celebrate with us. We weren't trying to get pregnant… but we weren't not trying.”
Nick expressed his own excitement on Instagram, sharing, “Every day, Jessica and I thank the Lord for all the blessings He gives us. And now we are blessed with the greatest gift … a child. We are beyond pleased. Thank you for all who have stood with us in support … and thank you to those who have opposed us to make all the victories worth it. I'm looking forward to Jessica being my wife and the matriarch of the Nickson establishment in Texas. What an incredible year.”
