It looks like Married at First Sight couple Jamie Otis and Doug Hehner are kicking 2017 off with some good news, as they announced last night on FYI that they are pregnant! Just six months after losing their first son, the couple was pretty stoked about the big announcement, which definitely made me cry watching it last night!
Jamie and Doug met and married on the first season of Married at First Sight. They have made it work and were expecting their first baby in December 2016, but there were complications and Jamie lost the baby, a boy they named Jonathan Edward, in July 2016. And now they have a new bundle of joy to bring excitement back into their home.
Jamie told People: “Doug and I have been praying and not so patiently waiting to have our rainbow baby since we lost our first born, Johnathan Edward, in July 2016. We are feeling so blessed and truly thankful for this little miracle growing inside of me. Being a mother has been a long awaited dream of mine. It goes without saying that Doug is going to be the best daddy ever. We cannot wait to meet Baby Hehner this coming summer!”
I will admit, I was shocked by this announcement and how they came out so early with the news. After losing a baby, you would assume they would take some time and wait to make sure there are no complications again.
However, a source told People: “They want to empower women to share their good news earlier than the politically correct 3-month marker. They want their story to inspire others to not be scared to come out with their news even in the first trimester, and not have society dictate a safe time to make baby announcements.”
Here’s to a happy and healthy pregnancy!
We are PREGNANT!!! Our sweet Baby Hehner is due this August. Of course I share so much more about our little #rainbowbaby with you all on my blog. (Jamie Otis.com/all-things-Jamie ) @people put the sweetest tribute together for our first born son – Johnathan. We love him so much and are so happy to know he’s looking down from Heaven taking care of his little sister/brother. ❤️ Thank you @people, for honoring our first born while we celebrate this amazing miracle.💕 Link in bio. #pregnant #preggers #overjoyed #babylove PS forgive me for my unbuttoned jeans. I’m at that awkward stage where I don’t quite fill out maternity jeans but I definitely don’t fit in my regular clothes. 🤗🎉🙏🏼😍 #sohappy
