Looks like it’s quite the “in” thing for Bachelorette ladies to be getting engaged these days! ABC’s most recent Bachelorette, Ali Fedotowsky, and former Bachelorette, Deanna Pappas are both ready to head to the altar.
I think that I speak for most Bachelorette fans when I say that we would love to see another couple from the show wind up happily married with a couple of little ones running around. Trista Sutter has definitely set the bar pretty high as far as having a successful marriage from a reality TV show goes, and she and her hubby, Ryan, have two beautiful children to show for it.
Will Ali and Deanna wind up happy and settled like Trista? Which one of them do you think will be a mom first?
Deanna is engaged to school teacher, Stephen Stagliano whose twin brother, Michael Stagliano appeared on Jillian Harris’s season of The Bachelorette. She and Stephen are planning a double wedding with Michael, and his fiancee, former Bachelor contestant, Holly Durst. Deanna is already making plans for the big day, and seems very eager to settle down and start her life with Stephen.
She comes from a huge Greek family, so there is a good chance that she’ll want to continue that tradition and have lots of kids. She strikes me as the type that would cook a huge dinner for her husband and kiddos every night, and would absolutely love having little ones run around the house.
Ali Fedotowsky and Roberto Martinez have moved in together in San Diego, but there aren’t any official wedding plans in the works just yet. Right now, they are just enjoying being together, and Ali is looking for a job, since she gave up the one she had with Facebook in order to appear on The Bachelorette.
Career always seems to come first with Ali, doesn’t it? First, she left Bachelor Jake Pavelka because she didn’t want to lose her job with Facebook. But wait a minute…then she turned right around and gave that same job up so that she could be the next Bachelorette. That’s gotta sting a bit for Jake. I guess he wasn’t worth risking her job for, but 25 other potential suitors were?
If I had to put my money on it, I’m betting that in another few years, there will be a few mini Stagliano-Pappas kids running around. And as far as mini Alis and Robertos?
Call me crazy, but I’m just not sure that it’s in the cards for those two. What do you think?
