Desiree Hartstock and her husband Chris Siegfried are welcoming a baby boy!
Earlier today, Hartstock posted an Instagram hinting at the celebration. “What will it be… a he or a she?!” she captioned the photo of the happy couple smiling together. Guests at their gathering nibbled on treats including cake and cupcakes from Seattle’s Blue Box Bakery. Chef and owner of Blue Box Christina Kim Mathis told E! News all about the desserts. The cake was the bakery’s “Signature Vanilla cake with Bavarian Cream, Berries, and Vanilla frosting, with a special color added to their cake to reveal the gender of their new arrival. The cake was adored with a blue and pink water color motif.”
The Siegfrieds are also parents to Asher Wrigley Siegfried, who is almost 2-years-old. The bake shop even made cupcakes for the soon-to-be big brother who ultimately did the honors of spilling the truth about the new baby. Mathis told E! News, “She wanted a fun way to include Asher in on the celebration so we included a few vanilla cupcakes filled with blue buttercream, in addition to the custom cake, so that he could join in on the big reveal!”
A video posted on Instagram shows Asher taking a bite of the cupcake, which breaks into many pieces showing the blue inside. He’s even wearing a shirt that says “big bro.”
The former Bachelorette star—who met Siegfried while on the show—gushed about how excited she and the family are about their new kid. “We are beyond excited to have another baby boy join our family! Can’t even believe we’re already half way there to meeting him. Our hearts are so full right now,” she wrote.
Hartstock and Siegfried announced they were expecting their second child in July. Siegfried told Us Weekly he has “jumped back into it” in terms of preparing for the newborn. “I cook and let Des relax as much as she can,” he told the publication.
Perhaps her husband prepares food involving two of her cravings: Italian sandwiches and vinegar.
Congratulations again to the Siegfried family on the baby boy!
