So here's a little secret we've been keeping for some time now: we’re becoming a family of 3! 👶🏻🤰🏻❤️✨ @jamesbabschen and I are so happy and full of excitement! Praise God for all the wonderful things that come from Him! #pregnancyreveal #pregnancyannouncement #melspregnancyjourney
Some couples also prefer to announce pregnancies once the first trimester is done, as the risk for miscarriage has greatly reduced after the 12-week mark. Still, Melissa and James have not provided any details about the pregnancy and the sex of the baby.
She may also have been dropping hints even before the announcement. In this Instagram photo which was posted a day before the announcement, she called herself “Mama bear.” Her followers may have thought that she was referring to her furry OOTD, but she could have meant that she was carrying a baby already.
Her recent food photo also shows one of her favourite dishes that she had in Germany. Could this have been a photo of food she’s been craving for her pregnancy?
While Melissa shared an Instagram photo, so did her husband. The photos may have been taken during the same day. James Chen’s photo showed Melissa holding a set of ultrasound photographs. From the sonogram results, one could guess that Melissa is a few months along, possibly in the second trimester, since the outline of the baby can already be seen.
The couple recently married last August, in a lavish wedding that was rife with brand sponsorships. Some wedding guests revealed that they found the situation uncomfortable.
Congratulations to James and Melissa and we hope that she has a wonderful pregnancy and safe delivery!
