Reality competition show super couple Rachel Reilly and Brendon Villegas returned to Big Brother last night and revealed to host Julie Chen that they are expecting their first child!
“Well, you know, Julie, how I say no one comes between me and my man … except a Brenchel baby!” exclaimed Rachel as the studio audience cheered. Julie later presented the parents-to-be with a special gift. “We have a little onesie for baby Brenchel, just a little suggestion for a name, potentially,” Julie said.
Brencehl were quick to show off their gift and Rachel suggested that fans had better be prepared for a deluge of Instagram baby bump pics!

Congratulations to Brenchel! I’m already trying to figure out what reality competition series features pregnant women. Perhaps Rachel will make an appearance on Labor Games? 😉
