Bachelor Nation is growing again!
Ashley Salter is pregnant and is expecting her second child with husband Austin Brannen, the participant in season 19 Bachelor and season 2 Bachelor in Paradise announced on Instagram Sunday.
Salter, 29, announced her big news with a picture of themselves, Brannen and their 3½-year-old son Brooks Hartman, on vacation at The Cove Atlantis in the Bahamas – the same place where the couple married in 2016.
In the family recording, Brooks sports with a big smile as he is held by his father, while the second mother to come cradles her baby pouch in a multicolored printed maxi-dress.
Paradise with my loves’, she captured the image.
Brannen shared a collection of photos herself and Brooks who swim with dolphins on Monday and revealed the baby’s sex in his caption: “Good times with Brooks and @absalt before our little girl comes in a couple of months”.
The New York City-based hairdresser first appeared in the season of Chris Soules of The Bachelor, where she famously claimed her love for onions and their many layers.
Salter quickly became a fan favorite for her zany commentary and host Chris Harrison personally asked her to appear on BiP, where she had a short romance with Dan Cox.
Salter and her real estate professional beau announced their engagement in September 2015 and told HUMANS: “We are very happy and looking forward to spending our lives together.”
Before announcing that she was expecting her first child, the realityster was seen with her baby bump at the wedding of fellow BiP alums Tanner and Jade Roper Tolbert in January 2016. Also at the event were then-mothers Ali Fedotowsky- Manno and DeAnna Pappas Stagliano.
Images of the Tolberts’ wedding, including Salter and her baby bump, were broadcast as part of The Bachelor at 20: A Celebration of Love special, which broadcast that Valentine’s Day.
After welcoming Brooks in April 2016, university enthusiasts Salter and Brannen made the decision in October at the Atlantis Hotel & Casino on Paradise Island in the Bahamas for their family and friends.
