Congratulations are in order for Melissa Rycroft and Tye Stickland.
The Bachelor alum, 30, and her husband of four years are expecting their second child, she announced Tuesday on Twitter.
“Clearly excited to share our big news!!! A new little Strickland will debut this fall!” Rycroft captioned a shot of her positive pregnancy test. The Dancing with the Stars alum quickly correct herself with a new Tweet. “Oops … clearly not due this FALL! I meant SPRING. (Pregnancy brain at work!).”
The pair — who wed in 2009 — are already parents to 2½-year-old daughter Ava Grace.
“Sooo … It’s official, the Strickland Family is growing by one next Spring! Ava is so excited to be promoted to Big Sister! We are so excited for our new little addition!” Rycroft captioned the cute family shot via Facebook.
In May, the reality star opened up to Celebrity Baby Scoop about her thoughts on baby No. 2.
“Tye and I have always discussed the fact that we want a big family, but right now the three of us just kind of works,” she shared. “It will happen when it happens, but it’s definitely something that we think about and something that we want.”

“I’m not sure Ava wants it though,” she added. “Every time we ask her if she wants mommy to have a baby or if she wants a little brother or sister she says, ‘No,’ and I can’t blame her. I mean, heck, she runs the household right now, it’s under her wing! So why would she want to share the privilege? But it will happen eventually.”
