The leading lady of season 4 tweeted last night that, "I'm overwhelmed with love and joy tonight. Thank you all for making an old gal feel special! We can't wait to welcome # BabyStag."

She also added that she's 17 weeks along. In fact, her Twitter page got taken over by congrats messages from past "Bachelor" and "Bachelorette" stars like Sean Lowe and Ali Fedotowsky.
