The Bachelorette‘s Ryan and Trista Sutter have announced that they are expecting their second child. Trista, who is just over three months along, tells Life & Style that she and Ryan were shocked to learn — just a few weeks after son Maxwell ‘Max’ Alston‘s birthday in late July — that they will be welcoming a new member of the family come spring.
"I had just taken the test when Ryan came up the stairs. I showed it to him and said, ‘I think I’m pregnant.’ His first words were, ‘Holy crap!’ It was positive shock, one of the best kinds you can have in your life."
Trista and Ryan previously shared with CBB that they struggled for two years to become pregnant with Max, now 14 months, and believed that it would take just as long to conceive their second child. They started trying in again in January and found that success didn’t take as long this time around! After taking a few negative tests in prior weeks, Trista took one more and found that "the line was extremely faint, but it was there!"
Despite previous claims that she would like a little girl, Trista now says she just wants "a really happy and healthy baby," adding that "I know that sounds cliché, but it’s the God’s honest truth." Even though part of her still wants a daughter, she would love to have another son because "Ryan has a brother, and they’re about the same age difference as Max will be with his new sibling. So it would be fun to have two boys, too." No matter whether it is a little boy or girl, the couple is also considering adoption "because I’m leaning toward having my tubes tied" after the birth of the baby.
"I think I’ll be happy with two kids … If we hadn’t been able to get pregnant again, I was 100 percent happy with my life. This new baby will just add a little bit more life and spirit and happiness and fun!"
Trista, 35, and Ryan, 34, were married December 6, 2003.
