Former Bachelorette star Jen Schefft and her husband Jason Waterman welcomed a baby girl into the world on Tuesday. Charlotte Grace weighed 8 lbs., 3 oz and joined big sister Mae, 20 months.
“She is a doll and we couldn’t be happier!” Jen announced on twitter. After two stints on the reality dating show (first winning Andrew Firestone‘s heart on The Bachelor), Jen met her husband on a blind date in 2008 and married him a year later.
The new season of the Bachelorette has wrapped up and is set to premiere next Monday.
However, as we have all become accustomed to with the previous seasons, its almost impossible for these shows to do without the revelation of scandal or drama. As we previously reported, Ali Fedotowsky is no exception to this.
It has come out that one of her bachelors, Canadian wrestler Justin Rego, actually had a girlfriend while on the show.
Host Chris Harrisontells ET, “Ali’s time as The Bachelorette was tumultuous to say the least… It was a tough run for her. The more I got to know her… everybody brings their baggage, whether it is Jake Pavelka or Andrew Firestone… you bring your life and your history. Part of Ali’s is that she is insecure, and her fear was that she wasn’t going to be loved back.”
Chris continues, “Everyone brings their own baggage to the show. Ali [is] a girl that has in the past been hurt before.” Chris also adds that despite appearing confident and independent, Ali is very vulnerable.
“She really had this fear of almost being rejected. Like, ‘Yes, I’m going to fall in love, but I’m really worried that I’m not going to get love back.’…Everyone has their kind of bones in the closet that they have to deal with. Hers was ‘I’m going to put myself out there. I really think I’m going to fall in love, but are these guys going to love me back?’”
Ali’s season premieres Monday May 24 at 9|8c on ABC.
Former Bachelorettestar Jen Schefft tied the knot this weekend in Chicago with her fiance Joe Waterman. The two got married at the Private Dining Rooms of Spiaggia in Chicago Friday night . Jen was previously engaged to Andrew Firestoneafter winning his season of the Bachelor.
“She looked beautiful,” said a guest who attended the wedding, held in a room overlooking Lake Michigan. “It was a very small wedding but very fun.”
The married couple, Schefft, 32, and Waterman, 35, had met on a blind date in February 2008. “We really get each other,” she told PEOPLE last year. “I guess it’s true things move fast when you meet the right person.” Good luck to the newlyweds.
Former Bachelorette star Jen Schefft is currently planning her summer wedding to fellow Chicagoan Joe Waterman. Jen was previously engaged to Andrew Firestone on the third season of the Bachelor. Shewas recently laid off her job and she talks to US about her upcoming wedding and why she doesn’t want to spend a fortune.
“I wanted to be considerate of a price,” Schefft says. “I’m not going to wear a $20,000, or even a $10,000 dress. I just don’t think it’s worth it for one day. She goes on to add, “However, I’d rather save in other areas and get the dress that I really, really want.”
Ex Bachelor star Andrew Firestone spoke to USWeekly and had some not so nice things to say about Jason Mesnick. Andrew accused Jason of being fake and referred to him as an “ass.”
Andrew states, “If he didn’t have his mind made up, don’t do anything, Don’t feel that you are so pressured into having to propose or make a decision. There’s no reason that you have to do anything, especially if you’re so torn that you’re crying like a little girl on that balcony.”
Andrew went on to say that he believed the whole public dumping fiasco by Jason was calculated by him. He says Jason was acting like as ass. “I thought it was super shady that Jason has one girl on and then he did the squirmy, puppy dog kind of thing, Melissa goes walking off and then the other girl comes on, and he’s sheepish and making out with her. Come on” Firestone says.
Seems like Andrew has a good read on Jason. We couldn’t agree more with him.
