Real World Alum Beth Stolarczyk's Pregnancy Forces Wedding Adjustments

08/19/2008 at 01:30 PM ET

Beth_stolarczyk In explaining why she walked down the aisle six months pregnant, Beth Stolarczyk admits that she has "always done things a little controversial." The Real World season two cast member, 39, "was not expecting to be pregnant on my wedding day" and had already purchased a Carolina Herrera gown prior to learning that she was going to be a mom. With alterations by R-Mine Bridal Couture to adjust the dress to her new form, Beth wed real estate developer Matt Ciriello as planned on Saturday, August 9th in Santa Monica.

In addition to the dress, signs of pregnancy made it into the footwear as well — Beth initially chose to wear white Havana flip flops due to swelling in her feet! In the end, she decided to go barefoot for the beach wedding, attended by 175 guests (plus one baby girl on the way!). Beth tells Us Weekly, "I have never been happier in my life. We are over the moon."

Beth and Matt, 32, expect their daughter in early December.

Ouch! She was such a mean lady on the show! Very deceiving and nasty! I hope motherhood changes her perception of life and helps her see the good in people, instead of the bad all the time.

God bless!

August 9th was on a Saturday, not a Thursday.

32? Really? I am 32 and thought she was older when she was on Real World LA.

Ah, reread-says she is 39 in the beginning of the article.

I think Beth gets a bad rap. She isn’t all that bad I think alot of her stuff is just showing off for the camera to make it look outrageous for good tv.

Congrats to them! I was wondering when she’d settle down with someone.

Whoa! I had no idea she was getting married let alone preggo!

I wonder if Jon the cowboy from that season ever got married….

It says in the article that she is 39 and he is 32. Her age slips on there. :)

Okay, I know will sound like a grouch with this — but when did everyone start saying they are “over the moon”? It seems like every other statement about a pregnancy, birth or adoption these days is using that worn phrase. I will take “thrilled” any day instead of the trite “over the moon” cliche. (And, yes, I do have more important things to care about, but this is just annoying me.)

Good for her. While it’s not always the ideal circumstance for a wedding, I applaud them for going thru with the plans they had already made for their special day and not letting the pregnancy stop that. Congrats on all accounts. I wish them nothing but the best!

Stef, I saw a VH1 reality stars update show and Jon isn’t married and is still a virgin. I believe is 35, not sure how long ago the show aired. He is still doing christian music and is a pastor in his hometown.
