The cast member of The Bachelor Winter Games went on to speak about how she had originally wanted a girl during her first pregnancy.

Iaconetti added: ‘I really actually do not even care what the combo is now, I just want them to be close.’

The couple announced that Ashley was pregnant with their second child during an Amazon Live session that took place this past January.

‘I’m pregnant!’ Ashley chimed in, later adding she was 13 weeks into her pregnancy.

Ashley and her husband tied the knot in 2019 before welcoming their first child together, son Dawson, in January 2022. 

‘We are a little concerned that he will be having some jealousy issues,’ Ashley said during the live stream. ‘He’s been incredibly clingy lately.’ 

Speaking with People, Ashley said she has been ‘overwhelmed as hell’ amid her second pregnancy.

‘We want Dawson to have a sibling,’ her husband told the outlet. ‘That’s very important. Both of us come from families with two kids. So we wanted to give that to Dawson.’

Their firstborn attended his parent’s first doctors appointment, where his mother’s sonogram was shown. 

‘I try to teach him, “Where’s the baby? It’s in the belly!”‘ Ashley explained. ‘Sometimes I’m like, “Where’s the baby?” And he’ll point to his belly. So he doesn’t get that it’s my belly. He has been extremely, even more so of a mommy’s boy since this child has been in my belly.’

‘So he is already getting jealous,’ Jared added.

So far Ashley’s pregnancy has been smoother than when she was expecting Dawson.  

‘I had hyperemesis gravidarum last time, so that meant that basically I threw up almost every, well, I threw up multiple times a day up to about 30 weeks. And the first 16 to 18 weeks were just absolutely debilitating,’ she said.

‘So I’m just so freaking grateful that I’m not experiencing that,’ she added. ‘I haven’t been great. I don’t like the feeling of being pregnant. I never want to feel this again. Just don’t like it.’

Ashley also revealed she suffered a chemical pregnancy in the fall before becoming pregnant again with their upcoming addition.

‘It’s a week five miscarriage where basically the day that you think that you’re going to get your period, you end up bleeding. But I had already had a positive pregnancy test. So for three days, I thought I was pregnant,’ she explained to Us Weekly. 

But just a month later Ashley became pregnant again: ‘We got so lucky that she got pregnant literally the next month,’ her husband told The Messenger.

Ashley and her husband first crossed paths on the second season of Bachelor In Paradise and later became engaged in June 2018.

The following year, the pair said ‘I do’ during a romantic wedding ceremony held in Newport, Rhode Island. In summer 2021, Ashley and Jared announced that they were expecting their first child
