'Bachelor In Paradise' stars Jade Roper and Tanner Tolbert expecting their third child: 'Here we grow again'
'Bachelor In Paradise' stars Jade Roper and Tanner Tolbert have announced on Instagram that they are expecting their third child together.
The 32-year-old star revealed the big news of her pregnancy in a cute post on May 18, thereby making the Roper-Tolbert household a family of five.
Addressing her followers, Jade shared the happy update with a photo of herself, daughter Emmy, and son Brooks, 10 months, while sitting on Tanner's back, who appeared exhausted. See the cute photo here.

“HERE WE GROW AGAIN!!! It feels so good to be able to finally talk about this pregnancy! If you noticed I haven’t been on social media much the past couple of months, it’s because I was dealing with terrible nausea and fatigue, on top of taking care of two kiddos during a pandemic,” Jade wrote.
“Although this time has its uncertainties, we are so thankful and excited for this baby,” she continued. “I truly believe babies being born during this time are here for a special reason, to be light workers. We are beyond happy to love another baby, to give Emmy and Brooks another sibling and to have our children be so close! #partyof5 #babynumber3."
Meanwhile, Jade and Tanner's friends and buddies on TV couldn't help but share their excitement about the news.
“Yayyyy!! Congrats you guys!!” 'Vanderpump Rules' star Kristen Doute wrote.
“Amazing!!! Brooks face is gold,” Lauren Iaconetti commented.
“Omg!! This is amazing! Congrats,” 'Bachelor in Paradise' star Emily Ferguson added, while Dan Cox said, “Woooooooo congrats!!”
Jade and Tanner have been married since 2016, and this is major news for the famous couple. Baby Brooks was born in quite a dramatic way in July last year, with her mother giving birth in their bedroom's master closet as there simply wasn't enough time to get to the hospital. Jade shared the shocking episode with her Instagram fans the following day.
"I gave birth at home last night accidentally, in our master closet," she said at the time. "I’ve been still processing the shock of this all, as this was not all at what I had planned, but I am so so thankful for each person who helped bring our son into the world safely."
"I’ll share my whole birth story soon, but long story short, my waters broke and 75 minutes later I gave birth to our healthy baby boy while clutching a bench in our closet," she continued. "It was one of the scariest moments of my life because I felt so out of control, but Tanner, Tanner’s mom, my mom and the medics and firefighters kept me going when I felt like the world was caving in on me and my unborn baby."
"I was going to share the happy, cute Instagrammable pics first, but this felt right to me," Jade added. "So incredibly grateful for the support system we had and for this beautiful boy I get to hold in my arms."
