According to US Weekly, Bachelor Nation star Jordan Kimball and his wife Christina are expecting their first child. The tabloid reported in an exclusive interview that the couple “I’m more in the mood than ever,” she says. Jordan was first introduced to fans of the series during Becca Kufrin’s season of The Bachelorette (season 14). He was later featured in Bachelor in Paradise seasons 5 and 6. Following his appearances on ABC programs, the reality star met Christina at Los Angeles International Airport in 2019 when he helped her with her bags, and the rest is history.
Jordan proposed to Christina on Christmas Eve in December 2020, and the couple married on January 15, 2022. Jordan told US Weekly that the couple were thrilled to announce their pregnancy:
“I don’t think I’ve ever been so excited about anything in my life. And with the house, the wedding, and now so much has happened in the last year and a half with the house, the wedding, and now this.
Christina discusses how she told the Bachelor Nation star about their pregnancy.
Jordan and Christina discussed discovering the pregnancy, her desires and other topics in an interview with US Weekly. The wife-to-be claimed that she took four pregnancy tests just to be sure before informing her husband. Christina claimed she started with the “dollars”, and after they were proven positive, she went to the store to buy more.
“I went back to the store and bought the pack of two with the first line and the digital one saying I’m pregnant. And I thought, ‘OK, this is it!’”
Christina then stated that she told her husband the news while he was eating his favorite dessert, carrot cake. Jordan was out of town at the time, according to the Bachelor Nation star, and when he got home, she surprised him with the cake with the pregnancy test next to it.
The Bachelor alum spoke out about the kind gift, saying:
“We hadn’t really tried much, but it was kind of a plan that we wanted to start a family. It’s been over a year since the wedding. “Well, I’ll show you this carrot cake,” she says. When I go inside, there is a pregnancy test next to the cake. That was a really charming and fun way to learn.”
While Christina was happy with a boy or girl, Jordan revealed that he was secretly hoping for a newborn boy who could serve as an “older brother protector” if and when they decide to have a second child. On the other hand, he insisted that all he wanted was a healthy child.
If they have a girl, they want to remember Christina’s grandmother, and if they have a boy, they want to honor Jordan’s grandfather and father’s middle name. Jordan spoke of meeting Christina in January 2022, saying he was “blindsided” by the level of affection he felt from his now-wife. He said his time on reality dating shows made him realize he was serious about finding someone special.
“I would say the Bachelor prepared me so much that I was ready to take it seriously. I was ready to be humorous and be myself – and especially after seeing myself on TV, there are aspects of what I did that I enjoy and chuckle at. And while I’m not the biggest fan, you can learn a lot. And I believe that’s what I’ve done: I’ve evolved from it.
Aside from dealing with the pregnancy news, Christina said she took it “one day at a time,” adding that while she sometimes gets nauseous, she feels better after eating. Her pregnancy symptoms included “extremely hungry” and “very exhausted.” She is expected in early summer.
