Something good was in the water this Mother’s Day. In addition to Christian Serratos welcoming her baby shortly before the holiday and Acacia Brinley giving birth on the day, a two YouTube stars got some very exciting news on May 14 — they’re pregnant!
Ellie and Jared Mecham started trying to get pregnant with their third baby about a month ago, but because the 26-year-old struggled with infertility in the past, they didn’t know how hard it would be this time around. The blonde has been saying she feels like she’s expecting for about two weeks now, but every time she took a test it came back negative…until Mother’s Day 2017 rolled around.
Ellie decided to take one more pregnant test, hoping that the others had a different result because it was too early for them to detect anything. This just goes to show that you should always listen to your body, because her suspicion was pretty much exactly what happened! And when she peed on a stick yesterday, the highly anticipated second line appeared.
The Mechams are already the parents two two little boys, Jackson, who turned 3 in January, and Calvin, who’s almost 2.
We are SO incredibly excited for Ellie and Jared and can’t wait to watch as they document their pregnancy journey for the third time on their YouTube channel!
