Alex, who won Richie Strahan’s season of The Bachelor in 2016 and then later appeared in the second season of Bachelor In Paradise, announced her pregnancy in January.

“I wonder if you’ll have your father’s eyes? Will be you be stubborn like your mother?” she wrote online. “See you soon little darling.”

Her pregnancy journey has been well-documented on Instagram, including the design process of her nursery.

She also recently admitted that she would like to give an all-natural birth “a red hot crack”.


A number of Alex’s Bachelor season four co-stars congratulated her in the comments, including Richie’s runner-up Nikki Gogan.

“Wonderful news Alex,” she shared, “My warm congratulations to you and your family.”

“Congratulations Darling,” second runner-up Olena added, with Kiki Morris also writing, “I’m so happy for you! Congrats fam.”

“Eeeee!!! Congratulations Alex! And welcome Maxwell, to this side of the world,” Megan Leto Marx replied.
