2017 was a wild year for Christmas Abbott. From a called off engagement to being on CBS’ Big Brother to breaking her ankle while on the show, Abbott went through a lot last year. But 2018 seems to be just as exciting.

Yesterday, Abbott shared that she is nine weeks pregnant!

Well, I’ve always expected the unexpected in my life and this year is no different! In January I discovered I am actually EXPECTING and a whole new life would be laid out before me. After a challenging 2017 year it is turning out that 2018 is the best year of my life to date. I have my health, family, friends, passion, and a new addition to my tribe.. Ben & I couldn’t be happier with this news and are over the moon excited about this wild, new journey. I’m currently 9 weeks and our #babybunny has a very active heartbeat! We were so relieved to see the baby healthy and strong. After I saw the heart beating I couldn’t stop crying for most of the remaining day. It was intense. I’m excited to share my experience in this process as much as I feel comfortable. 📸 @christaporto #wildstrawberry #babybunny #9weekspregnant #firstbaby #newmom #icryalot #whatthehellishappeningtomybody #hormonesareabitch #gimmeallthecarbs #radical
