Bachelorette Jen Schefft Expecting Her First Child


Former Bachelor and Bachelorette star Jen Schefft is expecting her first child!

The Chicago PR exec, 33, who wed trader Joe Waterman last May, is due in November.

“I was shocked. I thought it would take more time,” Jen shared with Us magazine. “I took three tests because I didn’t believe it was true!”

How did she break the news to her husband? “I put the tests in a Ziploc bag and rushed to the train station to pick him up after work,” she shared. “I handed him the baggie, and he gave me a high-five! He hugged me too, of course, but we were so taken off guard.”

Though she doesn’t know the baby’s gender yet, “I don’t know why, but I feel like it’s going to be a girl,” Jen told Us magazine. “I already have, like, 10 names, but I’m not telling!”

Best Wishes!

    That’s great. Its funny to hear the ways that moms tell the dads about the new pregnancy. I always wanted to be pregnant around Christmastime so I could wrap the stick and put it under the tree. IT didn’t work out that way, and I wouldn’t have been able to wait anyway… I was always bursting to tell!
