There’s a new girl in town! Well … there’s going to be. Jillian Harris’s family of four – partner Justin Pasutto, one-year-old Leo and adorable Boxer Nacho – is growing to accommodate a new member, and the HGTV star has shared a very exciting detail! Jillian took to social media on Wednesday (May 23) to share a gender reveal with her fans, and the results are positively rosy!
Decked out in pink, her beautiful family posed for an Instagram snapshot, which the 38-year-old captioned: “My heart could EXPLODE!!!! Up next.... a baby GIRL!!!! @justinpasutto are you ready for this!!?? Thank you EVERYONE for your enthusiasm and LOVE ” Her fans are definitely ready to see what cute adventures the Vancouver-based family gets up to with their new addition.
The soon-to-be mom of two also produced a beautiful video of their big gender reveal, taking her viewers through the full day leading up to the event. But she wanted her fans to know that she’s thrilled with either result. “While I’m excited to see what we’re having, I actually don’t really care. There’s a part of me that really wants another boy for Leo and Justin,” she shared with her viewers. “Of course, there’s a little part of me that would love to have a little girl running around with matching outfits with me and being able to decorate a pink nursery would be the bomb.”
That day, family gathered at Jillian’s home in British Columbia for an intimate party. Keeping a running tally of gender guesses, the vote was about half and half. But ultimately, it was revealed that the interior designer will get the chance to pink up their home! And the reveal was spectacular. Gathering around their pool, one of her family members was in charge of changing the pool lights to blue or pink. When the pool lit up pink, a couple people dove straight into the water with excitement.
“We’re having a girl! At least I won’t be outnumbered anymore,” Jillian laughed to the camera. “I guess I will be with Nacho. Our girl’s going to be a little tomboy anyways! We’re excited, you guys. Let the journey begin!” Their latest adventure kicks off in October, when their little girl will join the family. Jillian and Justin first revealed the news of their pregnancy in April, telling Hello! Canada, “Things are so great with us right now, Justin and I are so excited and can’t wait to meet the new addition to our family," she said. "Leo is kind of a typical only child right now, so he’s going to get a harsh dose of reality. I feel bad for him.”
