The “Dancing With the Stars” alum, who was famously dumped by Jason Mesnick on “The Bachelor,” is expecting her first child with husband Tye Strickland, an insurance agent.

]]> Us reports that the couple was shocked by the discovery. “We weren’t even trying,” says Rycroft. “It’s the most wonderful surprise in the world. It’s such a blessing.” The couple lives in Dallas. Rycroft, who will appear as the host of ABC’s “The Bachelor Pad” beginning August 9th, says that Strickland has been quite emotional over the news. “He’s actually cried more than I have. Tye is caring, he’s funny, and he’s going to be a great dad.” She says that the couple is anxious to find out whether they’re having a girl or a boy, but in the meantime, she’s “eating everything in sight.” Though she claims, “I’m going to swell and gain 90 pounds,” we’re sure she’ll be able to dance it off.
