Renee Oteri, who competed for Juan Pablo Galavis’ heart on the last season of The Bachelor, is expecting a baby with her new husband Bracy Maynard.

Renee Oteri Pregnant

Oteri had been a fan favorite on The Bachelor’s Season 18, serving as the mansion’s resident house mother for the other women. Already a mother to 9-year-old son Ben, Oteri is now pregnant with her second child.

“We’re so excited!” Oteri told People magazine. “Bracy is already paranoid — always checking in and making sure I’m okay. He’s in dad mode already!”

A little more than three months along, Oteri claims that she hasn’t had a bad case of morning sickness and that their check-ins with the doctor have been positive.

“I’m feeling good,” she said. “We just had an appointment and this baby will not sit still! I keep calling her a she but we don’t know the sex yet. I can’t wait to find out.”

Though Oteri refers to the baby as a she, she admits her son Ben is wishful he’ll soon have a little brother, saying, "He’s hoping for a boy!”

Oteri and Maynard, who married about four months ago, have no plans of stopping after their first child together is born in January 2015, according to the Bachelor star. “We want more kids,” she said. “We’re going to try for another after this one!”
