Although former Blossom star Jenna von Oÿ may have told her hubby Brad Bratcher that she was pregnant on their first wedding anniversary, make no mistake – Bruiser was the first to know.
“I found out I was pregnant and I was bursting at the seams,” the excited actress shares with People. “It wasn’t fair to tell anybody before I told my husband, so I was like, ‘Hey, Bruiser, guess what?’”
The couple have three pugs (Bruiser being one), a basset hound and a corgi/Shar-Pei/golden retriever mix and Jenna claims they have all been very aware of her pregnancy.
“Bruiser’s reaction has been astounding – he blew me away,” the actress says. “He’s a very docile dog and he rarely gets feisty, but [early on in the pregnancy], he’d lie in front of me and every time one of the other dogs would try to jump up near me, he’d snap. He knew my condition!”
Jenna married her computer data consultant hubby in October 2010. The couple are expecting their first child – a daughter – in June.
