DeAnna Pappas Stagliano, who was the runner-up on the 11th season of 'The Bachelor' before getting to make her own decisions on season four of 'The Bachelorette,' is pregnant with her very first baby with husband Stephen Stagliano.

"We are so very excited," she gushed to People. "We had been trying for almost a year; we wanted this so badly."

When asked about the sex of the baby, DeAnna responded, "I kind of wanted it to be a surprise, but Stephen wants to be prepared."

"The baby is due Feb. 8 and Stephen’s birthday is Feb. 4. I told him all he’s getting for his birthday this year is a baby!"

If you don't remember DeAnna's back story, she was chosen as runner-up for 'Bachelor' Brad Womack, only to go on and pick Jesse Csincsak as her fiance when she starred in her own season of the series.

But after those two broke things off, she was set up by 'Bachelorette' season five contestant Michael Stagliano (Stephen's twin) with his brother, and the rest is history.

The pair got engaged in 2010 and married in 2011
