Baby Girl on the Way for Ali Fedotowsky: She Will ‘Be the Queen of the House’

Two girls, one man: who will get the final rose? Both!

Ali Fedotowsky and fiancé Kevin Manno are expecting a daughter in July, the couple announced on her blog Wednesday.

The former Bachelorette star, 31, and Valentine In the Morning co-host, 32, made the exciting reveal just two months after announcing Fedotowsky’s pregnancy in January – and a few weeks after discovering the sex.

“Honestly, we would have been thrilled with either,” wrote Fedotowsky. “It’s cliché to say but all we want is a healthy baby. Well it’s cliché because it’s SO TRUE!”

She added, “We are so thankful to say that so far, our little girl has passed every test and is looking very healthy. But no matter what happens, we will love everything about her.”

In addition, the couple recorded and shared their reaction to finding out the baby’s sex in December – an emotional, and happy moment that left Fedotowsky crying. “Watching it back I am almost surprised that my reaction isn’t ‘bigger,'” she wrote. “I think it was just surreal in the moment and I was taking it all in.”

The mom-to-be, who writes that “I totally pictured myself as a mother to all boys,” says her daughter “will most certainly be the queen of the house,” and that she “will be so loved by so many the very day she comes into this world.”

Fedotowsky and Manno got engaged last fall after two years of dating. They hadn’t yet made it down the aisle when they got the exciting news about their bundle of joy.

“We are thrilled, excited, nervous, and in awe that we are going to be parents! We feel incredibly fortunate to be lucky enough to welcome a little one into this world,” Fedotowsky, 31, told PEOPLE at the time.

Of starting a family before tying the knot, Fedotowsky has said, “This was not an ‘oops, what happened’ moment. We pulled the goalie! We’re like, ‘We want this!’ ”

Us Weekly was first to report the news.

Congrats to them! I always liked Ali. That is so early to find out the sex. I was due in July with my son and we didn’t find out until mid March what we were having. Usually it’s at the 5 month sonogram. Hey that was 10 years ago already. Maybe they do things differently now?

You can find out now with a blood test at 10 weeks.

You can find out the sex as early as 12 weeks by ultrasound. Obviously the accuracy gets better the further along you are, might be why they waited to share the news as they have probably had more ultrasounds by now. I know 5 years ago when I was pregnant with my last child we paid for an elective ultrasound to find out the sex at 16 weeks and they said they would have even tried at 14 weeks then.

I will never understand why people plan a pregnancy without a commitment. No a child is not a commitment to another person, it is a commitment to that child. Unfortunately everyone likes to forget the inconvenient truth that children raised in a stable home by two parents are much better off psychologically, emotionally and even physically. That doesn’t mean stay in unhappy relationships but that does mean choose your children’s other parent wisely. If you aren’t so in love with that person that you want to marry them…it might not be a good idea to have a child with them.

Ok, so clearly Kevin was hoping for a son…lol. He could not have showed less emotion.
