Big Brother 19 star Jessica Graf is pregnant! She revealed the news in an adorable Instagram post that she and her fiancé Cody Nickson are expecting their first child together.
The 27-year old, who met her soon to be husband on the CBS hit reality TV show last summer, shared a lengthy post expressing her joy over being pregnant. Soon after Graf made the announcement, Nickson, the 33-year-old ex-Marine, took to Instagram to share his excitement regarding becoming a father again. Nickson is already a dad to his 6-year-old daughter, Paisley.

WE’RE PREGNANT! And I’m over the moon! I’m so excited to bring our first child into this life we have created together! I’ve been pretty quiet on Instagram lately. I’ve been avoiding posting stories and photos as much as I normally do because we’ve been taking this time to really enjoy all the great blessings we have in our life ❤️ Considering our engagement was leaked before we could tell anyone, it’s been so great to be able to share our new addition with our loved ones before making this announcement! I’m a little over 11 weeks and we plan on bringing our little angel into the world on April 11, 2019, just two days before Codys birthday 😄 We’re honored to be adding the FIFTH Big Brother baby to the world! We can’t wait to meet you little one and we already love you more than anything! 👶🏽 #MomToBe #BabyOnBoard
Fans who have been wondering why the usually active Graf has been quieter on social media the past several weeks now know the reason why she was MIA. The Amazing Race winner has not been sharing any pictures and was only posting about the current season of Big Brother. In her announcement post, she shared their little bundle of joy is due in April. Since the baby news broke, both of the soon-to-be parents have continued to post about their latest blessing.
Nickson and Graf got engaged last February shortly after it was revealed they had won The Amazing Race. They are getting married this fall. The couple had joint bachelor/bachelorette parties in Miami last month, which leads us to believe that they are moving full steam ahead with the wedding. They have talked about their upcoming nuptials on their YouTube channel.

Every day, Jessica and I thank the Lord for all the blessings He gives us. And now we are blessed with the greatest gift... a child. We are beyond pleased. Thank you for all who have stood with us in support... and thank you to those who have opposed us to make all the victories worth it. I’m looking forward to Jessica being my wife and the matriarch of the Nickson establishment in Texas. What an incredible year.
It has barely been over a year since Jessica Graf and Cody Nickson met in the Big Brother house, but a lot has changed since last summer. Their love alienated them in the game, made them huge targets, and fans watched as their houseguests tried to destroy them. However, their relationship was (clearly) the real deal. They were not just another in-house showmance. Now they will not only soon be husband and wife, but they will also be parents.
Whether you loved them or hated them on the show, you have to admit Nickson and Graf have had quite a remarkable love story, and it keeps getting better. These two are totally inspirational and let's be honest, they are a super cute in-love couple.
Congrats to Jessica and Cody! Now, when are we going to get a gender reveal?
