The couple announced on Tuesday how their third child on the way will be a boy after they used a powder cannon of color to unveil the sex.
“We are SO excited and thankful to be welcoming a healthy baby boy into our family!” Jade told E! News, who originally shared the announcement.
“Emmy, Tanner and I all were all putting our bets on a girl, but this is truly such a fun and happy surprise! It may take a while for Emmy to call the baby brother though. She is still referring to him as sister.”
She continued, “I’m so grateful, and I’m so happy we decided to find out before the baby is born. It gives me something to look forward to and I feel even more bonded to him now.”
Jade went on to joke how the “reveal for the sex of the baby was a total Pinterest fail,” as their initial plan didn’t go as expected. “We were hoping for a volcano eruption of color, and it came out like a flat blue pancake!” she laughed.
“It wasn’t perfect, but we laughed and the photos came out so beautiful regardless,” Jade added. “Definitely memories we will have forever.”
The family decided to go with a powder cannon from their photographer to later take photos with the cloud of blue powder in the air.
“It’s pretty awesome we are having two boys so close in age. I’m excited to see them grow up and be so close and hopefully be a little competitive with each other,” Tanner added. “It’ll be fun to see the differences in personalities. Plus, this way Emmy is still our only girl and that feels special to us.”
The Bachelor in Paradise couple previously teased Jade’s status on July 9 via Instagram Story, revealing to the camera how they were on their way to her 20-week ultrasound, where they hoped to get an envelope with the sex inside.
