Vanessa Grimaldi Shares ‘Bump Diaries’ Photos and Answers Pregnancy Questions
Last week, Vanessa Grimaldi announced she and her husband Josh Wolfe are expecting their first child together!
Bachelor Nation fans first met Vanessa on Season 21 of “The Bachelor,” and since her time on the show, Vanessa found love off-screen with Josh.
The two tied the knot on August 20, 2021, and have been living in Montreal together ever since.
And now that it’s been about a week since Vanessa shared their exciting pregnancy news, she’s taken to Instagram to share more pics and answer fan questions.
Alongside a series of photos from throughout her pregnancy thus far, Vanessa wrote, “One of my favourite things about being pregnant is knowing I get to carry around my mini best friend with me all day, everywhere & anywhere I go! #BumpDiaries #PregnancyJourney”

And in addition to sharing some new photos, Vanessa also answered fan questions about her pregnancy journey.
One fan asked how she found out she was pregnant, and the Bachelor Nation star shared the sweet story.
She wrote, “On our way back from our Florida road trip, we went to visit my grandparents once we got to Montreal. I was feeling off — nauseous and dizzy and I was scared I was sick and didn’t want to spread germs to them, so we decided to have lunch in the car in front of their house to be safe.”
Vanessa continued on, saying, “The next day I was supposed to get my period and I am ALWAYS on time, but I was late. Then late again on Tuesday and Wednesday. That Wednesday, we took a pregnancy test and waited impatiently in the bathroom together for the results to appear.”
“It’s a memory I will NEVER forget,” Vanessa shared.
Another fan asked if they have any names picked out, and while Vanessa said they have “a long list of names,” they haven’t found one that really stands out yet.
She also shared some of the more difficult parts of pregnancy so far, like the morning sickness.
Vanessa wrote, “I was VERY nauseous and felt like I had vertigo for a few weeks straight. It was tough being at work and wearing a mask all day while feeling sick. I would crawl from my door to my couch after work and chew on crackers and ginger candy all night.”
Thankfully, she said, “The feeling finally went away, but it was worth every second knowing I’m growing a tiny human inside of me!”
As for her other cravings, Vanessa said she’s been craving “anything sweet” which is typically not her, as she usually likes salty.
But she added, “Anything that my body has been craving, I gave it!”
We’re so excited for Vanessa as she enters this next chapter of life as a mom! Congrats again to Vanessa and her husband on their growing bundle of joy!
