Melissa Rycroft is going from ballroom to baby.

The former Dancing With the Stars and Bachelor contestant is expecting her first child with her husband, insurance agent Tye Strickland, her rep tells PEOPLE.

“Apparently Tye and I wanted to see how many life-changing events we could fit into one calendar year,” Rycroft, 27, jokes to Good Morning America‘s Robin Roberts.

“From getting engaged, married, new job, and we are now pregnant.”

Before delivering in February, Rycroft will co-host the upcoming reality series Bachelor Pad with Chris Harrison.

Leave your best wishes for the Rycroft-Stricklands in the comments!
