MARRIED at First Sight star Jamie Otis shows off her 39-week baby bump in a new nude pregnancy photoshoot.
Jamie, 33, and husband Doug Hehner are getting ready to welcome their second child, with the two already parents to two-year-old daughter Henley Grace.
In the pictures she posted late Saturday night, the reality star posed with her hands and arms covering her chest, stopping just above the baby bump to really show off its curvature.
In both shots, one of which is in color and the other in black and white, the pregnant mother is smiling down at her “baby boy Hehner.”
Jamie shared a personal letter about her experience with this pregnancy, writing: “I promised God I wouldn’t complain about any pregnancy pains if he’d just let me keep this baby.
“Monday I am 39 weeks pregnant!!! I wont complain about the waddle, the Hemerrhroids, the fatigue, and back pains.
“God’s kept his promise and I’m keeping mine!
The Wifey 101 author continued: “…I’ve held my breath from the moment the fertility specialist said I’m pregnant.
“I tried my best not to show my fear bc I only wanted to put positive energy out for this sweet baby boy growing in my belly.
“With each pregnancy milestone I felt more and more confident we wouldn’t lose him, but I never felt ‘safe’ to just let all my guards down.
“Which, unfortunately, prevented me from truly bonding with him.”
Jamie and Doug got married in 2014 while appearing on FYI/Lifetime’s Married at First Sight, just a couple years after she competed on season 16 of The Bachelor.
The couple’s road to becoming parents has not been an easy one.
In July 2016, the Married at First Sight: Unfiltered host revealed she’d had a miscarriage at four months along.
A year later, she got pregnant again and gave birth to their first child — a healthy baby girl, Henley — in August 2017.
In early 2019, Jamie announced on her Hot Marriage Cool Parents podcast that she’d experienced a second miscarriage.
After multiple losses, the 33-year-old said she “never felt ‘safe’ to just let all [of her] guards down” during her current pregnancy.
The baby’s due date is May 11, and she hopes to deliver the child herself, as she’s a labor and delivery nurse.
She said in her latest post: “I want to pull him out and bring him up to my chest and just LOVE on him.
“I can’t wait to smell his newborn scent & stare at the wonder of his tiny toes.
“I am so excited to have a home birth and have the opportunity to have the calmness of my own home so that I can bond and connect on a deeper level with our baby Hayes.”
