Vienna Girardi Is Pregnant 3 Years After Losing Twins: 'I Have Waited My Whole Life for You!'
The Bachelor Nation baby boom continues!
Vienna Girardi took to Instagram on Sunday to share that she is pregnant again. The franchise alum’s announcement comes a little more than three years after she suffered a pregnancy loss while carrying twin girls.
“Heaven’s [rainbow emoji] and Mommy’s [red heart]!” she wrote. “I can’t wait to meet you. I have waited my whole life for you!”
Vienna — who fans got to know as Jake Pavelka’s final rose recipient on “The Bachelor” Season 14 in 2010 — also paid tribute to her late twins by sharing a photo of a baby onesie that read, “Handpicked for Earth by my sisters, Gia and Mia in heaven.”
Over on her Story, Vienna expressed her excitement at experiencing her pregnancy journey alongside her best friend, former Miss United States Rachael Todd, who is also expecting. “Getting to experience this with my best friend is the best part,” Vienna wrote.
The Florida-based real estate agent added that she is grateful for all the support she has received from her followers in the years that have passed since her miscarriage.
“I have been waiting so long to tell you all about this tiny surprise!” she continued. “First, thank you all for the support, love and prayers over the years!”
Back in August 2017, Vienna opened up about losing her twins at 18 weeks.
“On Aug 3rd, I went in for an ultra sound bc the Perinatologist notice one of my twins had more fluids than the other which was the first sign of TTTS (Twin to Twin Transfusion Syndrome) this is when one twin takes more nutrients than the other,” she shared via social media at the time. “They said that it did look like it had improved over the last week though. Unfortunately, that was not the case and that evening my water broke due to the amniotic sacs rupturing. I spent the next 2 days in the hospital trying everything to save them.”
Explaining that she almost lost her life as well, Vienna elaborated, “The doctors had warned me that if I did not go into labor and deliver the babies, I was taking the chance of risking my own life and causing an infection in my uterus but they could not survive at only 18 weeks. I did everything to save them but their hearts stopped beating on day two which is also when I went into a septic shock with 104 fever.”
Vienna shared that her daughters passed away on August 5, 2017. “RIP My Sweet Angels Your mommy will never forget you and I loved you both with my entire heart,” she wrote at the time. “I thank you all for your support and prayers but I would appreciate it if at this time everyone can respect my privacy and allow me to grieve.”
