Jillian Harris is expecting her first child with her boyfriend of four years, Justin Pasutto. The former Bachelorette shared their exciting news on Friday via social media.

"I can't remember a time where my heart has been SO full. A total dream come true!! We are over the moon, stoked, blessed, exstatic!!!!! Little babe, we CANNOT wait to meet you!!!!!! @slipperygoose @nachocilantro #16weeks (ps details on the blog if you haven't heard the news yet... Love you ALL for your love and support!!!)," Harris captioned a family photo.

Jillian Harris, who is also a host on HGTV's Love It or List It shared more details about her pregnancy via her blog.

"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!!” she writes.

“I was 32 when we met, and Justin was a fresh ripe 24 (BTW I SWEAR he told me he was 27, which I rounded up to 28… so in my mind we were basically the same age HAHA),” Jillian Harris continues.

“Our age difference was never really an issue for us, our love was always strong and very real and that’s all that mattered. But truth be told, I could have gotten knocked up with his baby on that second date and I probably would have been over the moon… haha… ok MAYBE too soon, but I WAS smitten.”

“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!!!” she writes.

There's no question that Jillian Harris is over the moon with excitement about becoming a mom. Hopefully she and Justin Pasutto keep fans apprised of their preparations as they get ready to welcome a new baby into their hearts and their home.
