A lot can happen after that final rose!
Reality Weekly magazine is reporting that both Courtney Robertson and Ashley Hebert are expecting their first children by their Bachelor fiances, Ben Flajnik and J.P. Rosenbaum.
According to a source, “Courtney has been hinting to people on the show that she’s pregnant,” and she’s been complaining of an upset stomach. Most telling, though, is that she’s turning down offers of alcohol, “which isn’t like her at all.”
Meanwhile, Ashley and J.P. “seem more in love than ever,” says an insider, and their actions seem to hint that something is up. The couple are making wedding plans and looking to move out of Manhattan into roomier digs in New Jersey.
But we should probably take these rumors with a big ol’ chunk of salt. For one thing, Courtney and Ben’s relationship has been shaky ever since the show ended, and even though she’s still wearing her engagement ring, their issues may be bigger than their love. Surely they wouldn’t be foolish enough to try having a baby just to keep them together.
And Ashley? Not only is she busy with her career – she’s a dental student – but she was also a co-host at an event last night for Apothic Wines. If she sampled a glass or two, that’s a pretty good bet that there’s no little bachelor or bachelorette on the way.
Check out our gallery and tell us what you think! Is Courtney pregnant? Is Ashley? Or will we have to wait a while longer to start the Bachelor Bump Watch?
Looking good – but bumpless 1 of 6At the beginning of the month, Courtney sported a form-fitting dress as she went to tape the reunion episode of her show.
Baby on board? 2 of 6The following week, the camera caught Courtney coming from a workout toting a wheatgrass salad. Well, staying fit is important when you're expecting - but on the other hand, many moms in their first trimester are too tired or nauseated to hit the gym.
Going for the flow 3 of 6Since then, Courtney has favored flowing tops and loose, long skirts, which might hint at something. Plus, she and Ben have been working on their relationship, and a baby might have motivated their decision.
Expanding their surroundings – and family? 4 of 6Don't read too much into Ashley's long down coat; this pic is from December. However, the fact that the couple is looking for a house in the Jersey suburbs could indicate that they're looking toward the future.
Parenthood? It’s in their plans 5 of 6Unlike Ben and Courtney, J.P. and Ashley have been blissfully happy together, and they're starting to plan their wedding. But would they start a family now that Ashley is about to begin her dental residency?
Their official word 6 of 6Ashley and JP's blog announced on March 14, "It has been confirmed that Ashley is NOT pregnant at this time!...Maybe next year!"
