Update: Jon Dalton and Michelle Deighton expecting a daughter

11/28/2007 at 09:40 PM ET

Update: Jon and Michelle have chosen the name Piper Addison for their daughter, due January 26th.

Piper has found my kidney and ribs! Usually I’m the one that has thehiccups, but she’s been getting them a lot lately. Piper is now 15 incheslong and about three and a half pounds. I have started seeing thedoctor every two weeks, pretty soon I’ll have to start see him everyweek. I still haven’t gaineda lot of weight. 95% of all the weight I’ve gained is all the stuffPiper needs and the rest is in my butt!

As of right now I plan on going all natural, which means no painmedication what-so-ever, but then again in hour number 8 I may change mymind a little. I know I can do it, but of course like every pregnantwoman, I’m worried about the possibility of things going wrong. Iknow that nothing is going to go wrong, but if it came down to a choiceof me or her, I going to tell them to save her. Now Iunderstand why people are always get attacked by bears for getting inbetween her and her cubs.

People may tell me, ‘Butyou can have another baby.’ Yes, I know I can have more kids, but I cannever have another Piper Addison Dalton. She has a name, she has aheart beat, her room is ready and do you know how much that crib was?Jon can’t fit into it, so Piper has no choice but to come out healthy(and pretty of course!) but healthy is the main thing.

Update October 3rd: The couple have announced that they are expecting a daughter, due January 26th. Michelle blogs,

It’s a girl!!! Jon and I really wanted a boy, but as soon as I found outI was pregnant, all I saw around town was little girls, so I kind of knewit was a girl. We had a couple different boy names and only one girlname picked out. His mom is already buying pink stuff, she’s nevergotten to buy for a little girl before!

I’m about 23 weeks right now — like five months. My tummy is huge! It feels like she isriver dancing inside there. I’ve been having some mood swings. Oneminute, I’ll be walking on clouds and the next I’ll be crying andwondering what am I going to do. Now I know what my parents feel like! (They have four kids.)

No matter what kind of mood swing I’m having,I know this baby is the greatest thing to ever happen to me and Jon. Wecould go on to rule the world, but no thing is greater than this righthere. This baby has already changed our lives in a huge way. I can’twatch baby shows without crying at the end when the baby’s born. I’malready having nightmares about stuff too! I get really, reallystressed out sometimes. Without Jon, I would be going crazy by now.

I just signed with Expecting Models, it’s a pregnant modelingagency. I’m not use to people telling me to push my tummy out, I alwayshave people say suck it in, so that was a little weird, but a nicechange. Oh the craziness…

Update September 15th: Michelle has written a blog about the pregnancy on her MySpace page. Click the extended post to read it.

Thanks to CBB readers Leslie, Hilary, Jessica and Autumn.

Baby Fairplay is on the way…Oops. Yes, I’m serious and No, I’m not stupid. I was on the birth control shot. It just decided not to work!

Okay, so here are how things went down. I was on the shot and I thought it was working…it wasn’t! My boobs started getting bigger, I started feeling nauseous and I gained a little bit of weight. I started working out to lose the few pounds I had gained and every time I worked out I got really short of breath. But I thought it was because I never done yoga before, so I thought I just had to get use to it. I ended up going to the doctor for a check-up and told him about what I had been going through…he felt my stomach…he then said he thought I was about two months pregnant. I almost fell off the chair!

I guess the shot is only 97% effective. My body decided that I was going to be in that slim, tiny, little percent that it didn’t work on…great! I had to tell Jon and to tell you the truth I was really, really excited from the start, unbelievable scared also but really happy. He was really, really shocked.

I went to a women’s doctor and he said I’m not two months — try 17 weeks…WOW. So that was about two weeks ago when I found out, and since then my tummy is growing daily. My boobs have gone from a 34B to a 36C. I can’t fit into half my clothes and I’m wearing a lot of comfortable shoes and I’ve invested in wireless bras. (If God wore bras he would wear wireless bras!)

Both of our parents are excited. They are all going to be grandparents for the first time!! My mom is already planning a baby shower, but she won’t tell me when it is because it’s going to be a surprise. I go for my first ultra sound next week on the 18th! We get to find out what sex it is, but I not telling my family until the baby shower and since I have family on Myspace, that means I can’t tell you guys — sorry.

Jon and I are going to set up a baby register this week!! I’m excited because I get to use that scanner thing. We are both hoping for a boy because I grew up around girls, so I think it’s about time I’m around a baby boy. Jon just wants a boy because he just really wants a boy…I don’t think he has ever held a baby, but I could be wrong. All I know is that he is going to make a great father and I’m happy that this happened.

I know I’m only 21, but this isn’t the end of the world — it’s the start of a new one. It didn’t really hit me that I was going to have a baby until I felt it move last week. In that moment everything changed! I’m going to be a mommy!!

I got a baby book that goes though everything and I mean everything! I’m eating healthy and drinking plenty of water. I’m due around January 30th. But I kept hearing that the first baby usual comes late, so who knows. I haven’t decided what type of birth I want, but I’ve been looking. As long as Jon is there I’m happy.

As soon as I get a picture of my belly I’ll show you guys. I can’t think of any thing else to write, but yea I’m excited!! And Jon is excited!! We are thinking of baby names but we don’t want to start thinking about the nursery until we find out what it is.

I think the baby is going to have Jon’s curly hair but it will be dark like mine. I want the baby to have his blue eyes. No matter what, it will be a cute baby.

We just started telling people today and it’s already all over the internet. On TMZ.com and a million other places! Don’t worry, I’m still going to be modeling — pregnant models make more than skinny models!! So everyone — I’m sorry, but yes there is going to be another Jonny Fairplay!! Hahaha!!

Christine on

I thought she was gay or am I thinking of the wrong girl?
Not that gay women can’t get pregnant – but the post makes it seem as though they are a couple.
Congrats to them!

Gina on

I would have never imagined those two being together! I saw them both seperately on their different shows and would have never imagined them together. Interesting….to say the least

crazynlove on

I thought she was gay. I was watching a re-run of ANTM this past weekend and there was a whole episode dedicated to the fact that she was gay. I guess she changed her mind?!?

Stephanie on

Congrats to them. I had no idea they were an item. I haven’t seen her since ANTM and when she was on that show she way gay. She must have changed her mind??????

Anca on

Very nice! But I always thought she was a lesbian. She was gay on ANTM right? Am I wrong?

Michelle on

Wait a minute. Didn’t she “come out” on that show? Am I confusing her with someone else? She had really blonde hair on the show, and some kind of skin issue?

Doreen on

Wow!! I didn’t even know that these two were seeing each other!! lol Very cool!! I can only hope that he doesn’t teach his child to lie…..:)

sweetdiva on

Now I remember Michelle from ANTM and I’m pretty sure she came out of the closet on that show…was that just for the TV cameras?

Oh well, congrats to Michelle and Jon!

Bren on

I saw them both on reality shows after the shows they were already on and Michelle was on exposed, which is weird if they have been dating for 2 years – she flashed the guys on there. Johnny Fairplay seems to have alot of substance issues. I hope they are both passed that if they are having a child together because these two are a tad bit dysfunctional.

Tiff on

She came out as Bisexual.

mandy on

Bren…I saw that same show on MTV about reality show stars…I certainly hope that have matured since then. I wish them all the best. Congrats to them!

morgan on

Im a HUGE ANTM fan! She came out as Bisexual, she also was the one with the flesh eating virus. Johnny Fairplay? Well i won’t comment on him.

Eitherway, im sure most of what we saw was an “act” for the camera, all the best to them!

Leslie on

She didn’t have a flesh-eating virus, the other girls were just worried that she did. They sent her to a dermatologist and she was diagnosed with Impetigo.

Tanning Lotion on

A flesh eating virus. That sounds horrible.

Doreen on

Yep, she said she was bisexual I believe!! We all can’t be mistaken about this!! LOL Yes, she was the one with that skin condition and had to see a Derm on the show. I can’t believe the girls on the show thought it was a ‘flesh eating disease’. :)

Lola on

They should start setting aside $ for the kid’s therapy as he/she will need it sooner rather than later. And she was the one who was gay on ANTM…also a wrestler. Johnny Fairplay would be the last person in the world I would think would make someone switch back to the other team…Colby yes, him, no. (I’d go to the other team to get away from him.) IMO he should’t be breeding. Here’s hoping with some age also has come some maturity.

val yoshioka on

Michelle is bisexual and congrats to her and johnny fairplay

Michelle on

I had no idea they were a couple and, as everyone above me has posted, I remember her coming out on the show. As for “Johnny Fairplay”, I saw that one reality show where they were making the movie and he had big time drinking issues it seemed. I really hope he’s gotten his act together and that all goes well for them.

amanda on

I think everyone is thinking of Michelle from cycle 7 who was on the show. She told the other girls that she wasn’t sure about her sexual orientation.

poppy on

oh god. I have to say this sounds like a recipe for disaster. :-/ Not good.

Michelle on

Amanda – Everyone is thinkg about the right girl. (Although you are also correct about the girl you’re thinking of) If you go to Michelle’s myspace page, she has her orientation listed as bi.

erica alayne on

If I remember correctly, she came out as being bisexual on her season of ANTM, not homosexual.

FC on

She and Jonny are dating each other? Wow. Seems like such an odd couple but good luck to them on the baby! Jonny just seems like such a kid himself at times, especially with his antics, but who knows…

BTW, I think Michelle looks better with the darker hair. The blonde she had on ANTM wasn’t bad but I like her brunette better. :)

Angela on

Anyone else see the video on TMZ of Johnny getting his teeth broken after he jumped on and was subsequently thrown off of Danny Bonaduce? Yikes!

Rye on

Yeah, she came out to the girls as bisexual. I remember that season well because Naima won and she was like the first model I ever WANTED to win that actually won. I hope they are happy about the baby girl they are having…she seems almost dissapointed that they aren’t having a boy.

nicksmomma on

YES to everyone asking if this is the same Michelle that came out as a lesbian on ANTM. But, she said on the show that she was bi-sexual at first, I think. And then she said it went from being bi to being a lesbian. But, I did watch this True Life thing on MTV last year sometime about reality TV stars and Jonny Fairplay was one of the ones they were documenting. She was his girlfriend during that, so maybe things have changed. However, IF that show that I saw had any truth or merit as to how these two really are in real life, I truly hope this pregnancy slows them both down and they both grow up ALOT before the baby arrives. He was drunk from the time he woke up on that show and it showed him in bed with her and another girl on two different occasions while they were filming it. His friends were trying to talk to him about getting sober and he wasn’t having it. She was right there with him living it up, too. I don’t judge people, it’s their life, they can live it how they see fit. But, if that is how they really are, I hope they change a whole lot in the coming months (and I hope she already has being that she is pregnant and all).
Anyone see that True Life episode on MTV?

Nika on

I’m from the u.k and we get ANTM here, so i’m familiar with michelle, but jonny fairplay??

I’m assuming he’s famous nationally yes/no? Either that or i’ve been living under a rock since evryone seems to know who he is except moi!

Can someone enlighten me please?!

Sarah’s note: He was on Survivor: Pearl Island. It’s in somewhere but I think it got lost in the extended part!

Campbell on

Just shows that ANYONE can become parents!! Hope there’s a some life-coaching, parenting, and drug abuse classes involved in their VERY near future.

Heather on

She came out on ANTM as a BI, I actually just watched that episode a few days ago, so that should clear up some questions! I really like her, but not so much him. Oh well, what can you do.
