In fact, the Love It Or List It host admitted that she always knew she wanted to have kids with her guy, saying:
"I was 32 when we met, and Justin was a fresh ripe 24 (BTW I SWEAR he told me he was 27, which I rounded up to 28… so in my mind we were basically the same age HAHA) Our age difference was never really an issue for us, our love was always strong and very real and that's all that mattered. But truth be told, I could have gotten knocked up with his baby on that second date and I probably would have been over the moon… haha… ok MAYBE too soon, but I WAS smitten."
The reality star also opened up about their decision to have a child, and when she finally found out:
"Nevertheless, the topic of babies was always front and center in our lives, and I waited patiently for Justin to 'catch up' in age to me … and confidently tell me he would be ready. We both decided that the year I turned 36 would be prime time … so, in late 2015, right before my 36 birthday, we 'practiced for baby'… and got lucky, we found out 12 days BEFORE my 36th birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!!!"
She also shared a precious pic on Instagram to accompany the announcement! Take a look (below)!
But the momma-to-be wasn't the only one who penned a sweet statement about the news! Justin also took to IG to share a sweet snap of Jillian showing her baby belly to their dog.
The former pro snowboarder used the caption to address why he hasn't proposed to the future mother of his child, writing:
"So everyone has been waiting and waiting and waiting and frankly I'm tired of everyone telling me to lock it up… I mean if you know Jill she will loose the ring. So I came up with the best invention ever for the love of my life. A little baby miracle in her tummy."
He also added:
"Words can't express how lucky and blessed we feel to introduce a new life into ours and that our wish has finally come true."
Ch-ch-check out his full post (below)!
Jillian says she's already SUPER on top of her "vegan-ish" diet now that she's preggo, and that she and Justin are going to keep the baby's gender a surprise.
We're so happy for the Perezcious parents-to-be!
