Congratulations are in order for Jenny McClendon and Levi McClendon!
The mom from the reality TV show Raising Sextuplets and her new husband who are already raising eight children – six of hers, two of his – are now preparing to add a ninth baby to the brood.
“I’m writing this as I’m approaching my 28th week [of pregnancy] and I really still feel somewhat speechless,” McClendon shares on her blog. “I’m so excited for the sextuplets that they get to experience being the ‘big’ brother or sister.”
Formerly known as Jenny Masche before her split with ex-husband Bryan Masche – the father of her 5-year-old sextuplets Savannah, Bailey, Grant, Cole, Molli and Blake – the expectant mom says she and her new husband have wanted a baby of their own all along.
While her husband had his vasectomy reversed, she assumed her past fertility problems would cause delays (she previously received fertility treatments which led to the sextuplets).
But this pregnancy happend the old fashioned way.
“Levi and I are trying to gear up and imagine what life is going to be like in our already busy household with a newborn,” she writes. “In my head I think, ‘This is going to be so easy, it’s only one!’ However, I imagine that even this one is going to give us some sleepless nights and an even crazier household.”
And she revealed it’s another boy.
“At this point we are praying that the next 12 weeks go smoothly and that this sweet little boy will come into this world with a loud cry, rosy cheeks, healthy heart and mind, and a family of 10 ready to embrace him and love him! We’ll keep you posted,” the mom-of-multiples says.
