'The Bachelor' Gal Melissa Rycroft Is PregnantFormer 'Bachelor' contestant Melissa Rycroft is pregnant, Us Weekly reports.

"It was a shock. We weren't even trying," says Rycroft-Strickland, who married insurance agent Tye Strickland in December after a sad end on 'The Bachelor' in 2009. "It's the most wonderful surprise in the world. It's such a blessing."

A 27-year-old former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader, Melissa, who appeared on 'Dancing With the Stars' and will co-host ABC's 'Bachelor Pad' in August, didn't exactly have children on her mind quite yet. "[Tye] wanted the kids right away, and I was laughing at him going, 'No, not ready!'" she tells the magazine.
