Kacie Boguskie Gaston Is Pregnant With Baby No. 2 & The 'Bachelor' Alum Couldn't Be More Excited


Bachelor fans recently had yet another reason to celebrate when Kacie Boguskie Gaston announced she was pregnant with baby number two, a daughter. The Bachelor alum revealed the baby's gender on Monday in a sweet Instagram video of husband Rusty Gaston swinging a metal baseball bat and breaking a ball filled with bright pink dust, to the delight of family and friends. "We're having a..........." Gaston captioned the video. "We're so excited to share our gender reveal with you!"

Over on Twitter, Gaston captioned the video, "And we're having a... _ or _???" using the boy and girl emoji faces. Immediately, fans of the former contestant, who describes herself as a "Christian, wife, mom, [and] blogger," reacted enthusiastically.

"This is such a fun idea!!! Yay a little girl! How exciting!!!!!" one Instagram commenter wrote. "Can't wait to love on that sweet girl!" a friend wrote.

On her blog, Gaston shared her own excitement over the impending family addition, who will be joining 18-month-old big brother, Ranger. "We are so excited to share with everyone that our family is growing!!!! It’s been hard to keep such an exciting secret for so long. Thankfully now I can talk about it and not let it accidentally slip, oh yeah, and take naps without hiding them," she wrote.

Gaston continued,

Gaston initially announced news of baby number two back on March 6, but didn't reveal the baby's gender at that time, choosing only to write, in the caption of an adorable family Instagram photo, "We've been keeping a little secret ❤. Baby number 2 will be joining our family in August!" This time around, the reveal was met with equal excitement (maybe it was all that pink dust that got people buzzing on social media?).  

August may feel like a long time from now, but the weeks will likely fly by with everything Gaston and husband Rusty have to do to prepare for their daughter's arrival — including decorating the nursery and buying plenty of adorable newborn onesies. Congrats to the happy family!
