The clip features intimate moments with her fiancé Carson Jory and her two children set to an acoustic cover of Harry Styles’ song As It Was.

Her eldest son Elijah, 11, is shown excitedly reacting to the news of her pregnancy, while Maxwell, 1, looks at an ultrasound image and inspects her growing belly.


Another clip features Alex standing in her bathroom mirror wearing black lingerie while she cradles her bump, and the video ends with a shot of Alex and Carson holding hands on her belly.

“May 2023” she captioned the post alongside a heart emoji.

Alex later posted a video on her Instagram Story sharing more details about the exciting news, including when she learned she was expecting.

“Thank god that secret is out because it was starting to get very very tricky to hide from you guys,” she said.

“I found out I was pregnant a week or so after Maxwell’s first birthday, so that was the twentieth of August. I am now 13 weeks and bubba’s due date is May the fourth. So may the fourth be with me!”

‘So wonderful’

A number of Alex’s famous followers took to the comments on her announcement to share congratulatory messages, including former Bachelorettes Brooke Blurton and Angie Kent.

“Awww another little avocado,” her Bachelor season four co-star Noni Janur wrote. “Blesssss congrats beautiful.”

“Congratulations lovelies,” Yvie Jones replied, while Sophie Cachia added, “So wonderful”.

“OMG CONGRATULATIONS!!!! Love watching your beautiful family grow & flourish,” Married At First Sight’s Clare Verrall commented.

“I’m not crying you are!!” one fan said. “Couldn’t be more excited babe! Congratulations to you & the whole fam!”

Alex and Carson announced their engagement in September last year, one month after welcoming their first child together.

The former reality star also shares her 11-year-old son Elijah with her ex-husband.
