And the mom to sons Jax, 14 months, and Ben, 10, knew she was pregnant before she even took a pregnancy test!
The fan favorite, who was let go after Hometowns on Juan Pablo Galavis’s disaster season, is due in the summer — and she’s already planning her hot weather activities.
“I cannot wait to get my board out there and stand up paddleboard, all big and preggers!” the active lady exclaims.
As for big brother Ben, who is constantly seen in pics holding his little bro, he’s pumped for the arrival.
“Ben is beyond excited!” Renee gushes. “Ben’s only stipulation: He said he’s not sharing a room!
“But seriously, I can’t say enough about what an amazing big brother he is. He gets Jax to laugh harder than any of us. They are truly best buds. It’ll be so much fun to see another one in the mix!”
Renee and husband Bracy moved across the country (with Ben) from Florida to Washington State in February 2014, got married a month later, and welcomed Jax into their lives less than a year after that.
She says knew they wanted to start trying for another baby right away after Jax was born.
“I think my brother and I are so close because we’re only 14 months apart! We grew up playing on the same sports teams, going to the same schools, and having a ton of friends in common.”
Her line of beachy jewelry has been the focus for the last year or so, but instead of planning her next line, she’s now picking baby names.
“We really like the name Blake if it’s a girl, and Mason if it’s a boy,” the 34-year-old reveals.
“I’m making it sound like we’ve got it narrowed down here, but that’s definitely not the case. We have, like, 15 names for boys and the same for girls. These are just our favorites… this week!”
And if you have some good suggestions, she’s happy to take them!
