Jason Mesnick, 36, and wife Molly Malaney Mesnick, 28, from The Bachelor’s 13th season, have just announced they are expecting a baby.

Jason and Molly were cast-mates in 2009 on ABC’s The Bachelor, but Molly wasn’t Jason’s first choice.

The series ended with a twist that season. While Jason originally picked Melissa Rycroft to be his soul mate, he quickly broke up with Melissa on the show’s ¬†after-special, saying he still had feeling’s for Molly.Jason professed on during the follow up interview, his regret in not choosing Molly. Melissa didn’t take the news very well and wound up throwing her engagement ring at Jason.

Molly told interviewer and host Chris Harrison that she was still in love with Jason and the two decided to make a go of it. The couple married were married on February 27, 2010, in California, to a televised audience.

This will be the couple’s first child together. Jason has a son, Ty, 7-years-old, from a prior marriage.

Jason tweeted earlier on Thursday, “Yes its true! WAHOOOOOOO!!! Molly is going to be a MOM and TY a BIG BROTHER! YIPPEEEEEEE!”.

Season 17 of The Bachelor will air sometime in January 2013. The Bachelor will be Sean Lowe from 2011’s Bachlorette.
