Ashley Spivey is pregnant!
The Bachelor alum revealed on Instagram just this past Wednesday how she is almost seven weeks pregnant.
Her announcement comes only five months after both she and her husband lost a baby boy they were expecting, whom they named CJ.
“Plot twist,” she captioned a snapshot of herself holding her ultrasound photos. “As y’all all know, I just went through the IVF process and we had decided to freeze the embryos to give my body a little more time to rest. We planned on transferring in May but I should have known, as with many parts of my life – if you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans.”
And while Spivey revealed she understood her pregnancy is still in its early stages — she wanted to be open about her journey.
“This is my reality and I don’t want to have to stay silent about it because of taboos or a fear of jinxing it,” she wrote. “I’m scared and I’m nervous but I’m also overjoyed. I’d be lying if I said that I’m not constantly thinking of CJ but I have to think that he had a little part in this.
She concluded, “The due date is December 9 but my MFMA told me in a previous meeting that she wanted me to deliver at 37 weeks. That means this lil seed baby will arrive sometime between the days that my Dad and CJ died. It’s like they knew I needed something to get me through November.”
In November, Spivey revealed her pregnancy loss just four months after announcing she was expecting with husband, Steve Hunsberg.
In a series of posts on her Instagram Story at the time, she revealed that the reason she was open about the loss of their son CJ was to “give some insight into the worst day of our life.”
Spivey, who appeared on The Bachelor in 2011 during Brad Womack‘s season, got engaged to Hunsberg in late December 2014.
The two were married in May 2016.
