Ali Fedotowsky, fan-favorite former star of The Bachelorette, may not have found true love with final rose recipient Roberto Martinez, but she has since moved on–and looks to be well on her way to living out the “first comes love, then comes marriage, then comes baby in a baby carriage” happy ending with new fiance Kevin Manno!

The 31-year-old former reality star and on-air personality made the announcement earlier today with a blog post titled “We’re Going to be Parents!!!!” The post included the humorous pregnancy announcement photo above, in which Ali can be seen sporting some VERY high-waisted mom jeans with the message, “I’m not a woman anymore…I’m a mom.”

“I can’t believe the news is out,” Ali writes. “That’s right, we’re pregnant!” She then says that “it feels surreal to let everyone know, since this has been our little secret for a while now.” Ali says the thought of making the announcement had her very nervous, and she talks at length about how important it was for her and Kevin to keep it to themselves for a while. “This news has been OURS. Our little secret. Our little miracle,” she says.

But now that the secret is out, fans can look forward to LOTS of details! “I plan on blogging a lot through my pregnancy – sharing the ups and the downs,” Ali says, adding that “so far it’s been ROUGH!”

“Get ready for blogs in great detail about my trips to the bathroom. Oh yay!” Ali jokes.” We plan to share every emotion and every milestone. So please come on this journey with us. Baby Manno is so loved already!”
