molly malaney jason mesnick pregnant baby getty Molly Malaney and Jason Mesnick expecting a baby; 'Bachelor' family rejoicesIn one of the *actual* most dramatic “After the Final Rose” reunions in “Bachelor” franchise history, Jason Mesnick dumped chosen one Melissa Rycroft and asked runner-up Molly Malaney to take him back. So nobody really high hopes for that relationship.

But Jason and Molly were married Feb. 27, 2010 and are still going strong — so strong, in fact, that they have a “Bachelor” bundle of joy on the way.

Jason made the announcement on Twitter, writing, “Yes its true! WAHOOOOOOO!!! Molly is going to be a MOM and TY a BIG BROTHER! YIPPEEEEEEE!”

And Molly chimes in, “I step away for 5 minutes & come back to a ton of love. Thank you!
We couldn’t be more excited about the pint size peanut on the way :)”

The well-wishes from the “Bachelor” family have been pouring in, including creator Mike Fleiss, host Chris Harrison, former “Bachelorette” Jillian Harris and “Bachelor Pad” winner Michael Stagliano, among many others.
