On the pregnancy, the 30-year-old American Gladiator host and DWtS Season 4 third place finisher shares,
I don’t know yet if we are having a boy or a girl, but I’m excited that I have a life inside me that my husband and I created.
Curtis is very calm and has a quiet confidence, and he wanted what I wanted — to be married and have a family. I am 100 percent undeniably happy. I’ve never been able to say that before.
