Former Bachelor stars Ashley Iaconetti and Jared Haibon are expecting

The couple got engaged in June 2018 and opened up about their future family plans ahead of their wedding, telling US Weekly back in February 2019: "We want to have kids in 2020 or 2021". 

And they're right on schedule. 

The couple took to Amazon Live to announce the baby news and followed up with an adorable Instagram post. 

According to the mom-to-be, she's already experiencing intense morning sickness, so much so that she's been unable to keep up with her usual busy schedule. 

"The nausea has been relentless, and I throw up multiple times most days. I knew the first trimester wasn't easy for most, but I didn't imagine my life to come to a standstill feeling like I have an extreme hangover for 5 weeks and counting," she wrote. 

To cope, Ashley says she eats every two hours, snacking mainly on heavy carbs and added that her early struggles with morning sickness is why she decided to open up about her pregnancy during the first trimester. 

"So much of my job is posting about my life on Instagram, and I haven't done anything but sit on the couch literally day after day... I have nothing to show people. So it's like, I have to just tell people why".
