 Update: Surprise! The first ultrasound was incorrect, and the Barkers have now learned that they’ll be welcoming a daughter. Nigel’s agent explains, "In the first reading, they were told they’re having a boy. When they went back for a second reading, they learned it was a girl. They were thrilled to have a healthy baby boy — but to find outit’s a girl, they’re elated! Now they’ll have a son and a daughter."

Nigel tells Us Weekly that they’ll be waiting to see their daughter before they name her, saying, "We’re going to look at her, and when we see her, we’re going to come up with a name."

Congrats to them! I love Nigel on ANTM. And his wife has made a cameo on the show before as well. No doubt they’ll have 2 beautiful boys.

Congrats them them. What a nice surprise🙂

At least they found out now, while still in utero. They have time to prepare vs. the actual birth and “surprise,its actually a girL”.

Shelly on

Awww! Congratulations to them! What a nice surprise for them, hehe

I love Nigel in ANTM, he seems like such a great guy!

My ultrasound was incorrect too, the first one they said it was a boy and EVERYONE even stranger would tell me I ‘looked’ like I was having a boy, and surprise I had a girl!! lol

This is my biggest fear! We were told that we’re having a girl due in January and I’m so afraid that it’ll be wrong. My mom was told she was having a girl through her 2nd pregnancy and sure enough I have a little brother. I love Nigel though…she’s going to be a beautiful little girl!

Brigid on

Wow, what a surprise to get! Isn’t it usually the other way around, where they tell you its a girl and then they see a penis later? I wonder what they thought the penis was here, maybe the cord.

Congrats to them.

My mom was told I was a boy (she only had an u/s at 8 months) and surprise! I was a girl at delivery haha.

Nicole on

Nigel used to be a client of my company’s… well he probably still is, I’m just not with the company anymore… I never met his wife but he would bring in his sooooooooooooooooooooo cute son often
