Hi, friends. Some of you picked up on this during last night’s episode, so let me confirm. Honey is having Baby #2, because I’m having Baby #1. While last season’s pregnancy pad didn’t exactly prepare me for the real thing, it was a good practice run. (Except taking that thing off at wrap was a lot easier than getting kicked all night by this animal!) Husband & I are very excited for this next stage and I’m so grateful to my @freshofftheboatabc family for their love & support. Especially the AD team who keeps me flush with crushed ice while @hudsonyangfotb & @wheeler_forrest laugh at me You guys are the best
