melissa rycroft tye strickland ava pregnant 'The Bachelor's' Melissa Rycroft pregnant with baby no. 2Melissa Rycroft may have been the subject of a rather brutal public dumping on Jason Mesnick‘s season of “The Bachelor,” but the brunette beauty bounced back with a terrific turn on “Dancing With the Stars” and a wedding to Tye Strickland.

Now Melissa and Tye are adding a baby to their family of three. They announced on “Good Morning America” Tuesday (Oct. 22) that 2-year-old daughter Ava will be a big sister next spring.

“The dancing family is growing. We have a little bundle growing,” says Rycroft. And she tweets of teh news, “Clearly excited to share our big news!!! A new little Strickland will debut this fall! #ClearblueConfirmed,” along with her pregnancy test. OK, then.

Rycroft and Strickland will soon celebrate their fourth wedding anniversary.
