Congratulations are in order for Jillian Harris and her longtime love Justin Pasutto on the happy news that they are expecting their first child together. The Love It or List It Vancouver star announced her pregnancy in an emotional blog post on her official website, exclaiming, "WE ARE PREGNANT!"
"This has to be one of the most fabulous, emotional, wonderful blogs I have EVER written and we are SO happy to share this news with you," wrote the former Bachelorette. "I have dreamed for years of being a mama … thought about how I would tell people … how I would feel … what kind of mom I would be … and here we are … Justin and I couldn’t be MORE STOKED to grow our little family!"
The adorable couple have been together for almost four years and the B.C. native admits that she was "smitten" from the first date. "The topic of babies was always front and center in our lives, and I waited patiently for Justin to ‘catch up’ in age to me … and confidently tell me he would be ready. We both decided that the year I turned 36 would be prime time … so, in late 2015, right before my 36 birthday, we “practiced for baby”… and got lucky, we found out 12 days BEFORE my 36th birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!!!"
Jillian didn't just share baby news with her loyal fans but teased them with a follow up post that she promises will detail "how we found out, and how we dealt with the weeks that followed (THE HOLIDAYS!!) stay tuned for blog #2 … it was CRAZY!"
