Melissa Rycroft Thanks Juan Pablo Galavis for Being Controversial

03/12/2014 at 11:00 AM ET

The Bachelor finale has many fans fuming — but past contestant Melissa Rycroft isn’t one of them.

“I have to thank Juan Pablo [Galavis] for being controversial, because I think he took the heat off of our season,” Rycroft, who was infamously chosen by Jason Mesnick before being dumped for runner-up Molly Malaney (whom he later married) on the 2009 Final Rose episode, jokes to PEOPLE.

Rycroft, 31, has certainly found her happy ending off-screen. The former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader is expecting her second childa boy! — with husband Tye Strickland next month, and she started an online business that allows fellow mothers-to-be to sell and buy maternity and baby clothing.

Belly Bumps & Beyond, launched in February, already boasts more than 200 items in its inventory. For $1, users can put their gently used outfits on the market. (Think eBay for moms.) The idea, Rycroft says, is to offer expectant parents affordable and chic outfits for themselves and their children.

The former Bachelorette, who is expecting her first child with husband Stephen in early February, celebrated her baby shower with family and friends on Sunday with a pink-themed soiree hosted by Good Carma Studio.

“The shower was amazing! It was so beautiful and such a welcoming party for our little girl,” Stagliano, 32, tells PEOPLE.

For the baby bash, Pappas Stagliano was determined to show off her budding baby belly — and accomplished just that in a beautiful royal blue dress from A Pea in the Pod.

“It is maternity, but I didn’t feel like a big ol’ pregnant woman in it! I felt beautiful and like a proud mom-to-be in this dress,” she says. “I have only gained 26 pounds so far so I wanted a dress that accentuated my bump, but also still made me feel normal.”
