Ali Fedotowsky Shares Her Son’s Name, The Story Behind It

Ali Fedotowsky-Manno and her husband Kevin Manno just had a little boy. The fans of The Bachelorette had been watching and waiting for her little boy to be born ever since Ali told them she was headed to the hospital. At first, they didn’t reveal his name, but now Ali is sharing all about the name that they picked for their son and the meaning behind his name. People shared what Ali shared about her new little boy. 

Ali shared all about it on her blog saying that their son’s name is Riley Doran Manno. They actually didn’t make a decision until after her son was born. It wasn’t easy for them to pick a name, which is something a lot of parents deal with when deciding on a name. This is also why they didn’t tell fans the name as soon as he was born. Ali shared about the trouble they had picking out a name.

“Welcome Riley Doran Manno to the world! It’s crazy because the last two months of my pregnancy, we kept going back and forth between Henry and Miles. I had suggested Riley (and kept it on my top 5 list) a few months back but Kevin wasn’t taking to it like I was. So I had kind of dismissed it since Kevin wasn’t feeling it. But after our little guy was born he just didn’t look like a Henry or Miles to us.”

After that, Ali went on to explain that her husband Kevin saw their son and thought Riley was the name for him, even though he didn’t like it as much as Ali at first. She revealed that people had told her that once she saw the baby the name would come to them and that was what happened for the couple. It sounds like the found the perfect name for him.

This name is actually a tribute to Ali and Kevin’s siblings. It sounds like the perfect name. She explained the details saying, “Riley (Ry for short) is honoring Kevin’s brother Ryan and my sister Raya (pronounced Rye-yuh). And Doran is my brother Michael’s middle name and my mom’s grandmother’s last name. So as you can see, little Riley Doran’s name is very special to us!”

Ali and Kevin also have a little girl who is two-years-old. Her name is Molly Sullivan and her name is a tribute to both Ali and Kevin’s grandmothers. They may have a bit of a theme going if they keep having children.

Jillian Harris Is Pregnant Again, Shares About First Trimester Depression

Jillian Harris is pregnant with her second child and the star of The Bachelorette is now opening up about how she dealt with depression during her first trimester. This couldn’t have been easy on her, but People shared how Jillian isn’t afraid to share the details. This is her second child with fiancé Justin Pasutto. Their son Leo is 20-months-old now.

Jillian did an interview with Today where she was really open about what she has been dealing with it. She shared saying, “Pregnancy is supposed to be such a happy time … but I was just so exhausted and sick that I wasn’t happy.” This was totally different than her first pregnancy, which was very easy on her. Jillian said, “My pregnancy with Leo was a breeze. Women would say, ‘How do you feel?’ And I would say, ‘I feel wonderful!’ And they would say, ‘Oh my gosh, you’re so lucky.’ And I would think, ‘What’s the alternative?’ And now I know.” This time was a huge change and not near as easy. 

It wasn’t just depression, though. Jillian Harris revealed that she was unable to do her daily tasks as expected. She was trying to be a good mom to both of her children, but Jillian was having trouble doing laundry or even taking a shower. 

Jillian Harris was very lucky that she had Justin and that he was really supportive of her. She explained saying, “At one point, he was like, ‘I know you’re struggling, but if there is any way you could give me an indication that you’re happy, I would love to just see you smile,’ I looked at him and just started crying.” Things were really hard for Jillian during this time, but now they are looking up for her.

Now that she is in her second trimester, the depression has moved on and Jillian is doing a lot better. She is very grateful that she only had to deal with this during her first trimester and not the entire pregnancy like some women do. It has to make some women that are going through this feel better to know it can happen to anyone and that Jillian is being so open about her struggles. It had to be easier to share the details now that she is feeling better. 

So far, Jillian Harris hasn’t shared if she is having a boy or a girl. Hopefully, the news will come out soon and the rest of her pregnancy will be a lot easier on her.

The Sexiest Women on The Bachelorette

bachelorettte feauture

The Bachelorette is a reality dating game show that debuted in 2003 in ABC. Though it got canned in 2005, the network revived the show in 2008.

The women featured in “The Bachelorette” and “The Bachelor,” from which it was spun off, have all been invariably hot and good-looking. Here is a list of the sexiest women on “The Bachelorette” and on “The Bachelor” as well.

1. Ali Fedotowsky

Ali Fedotowsky

Ali Fedotowsky first appeared in “The Bachelor” in 2010 as one of 25 women trying to land the pilot named Jake Pavelka. She had to quit the show, however, after her employer issued an ultimatum for her to either return to work immediately or resign from the company altogether. Rather than lose her job with Facebook, she requested the producers to let her out of the show. She was then invited back to star in the next season of “The Bachelorette.” Fedotowski chose Roberto Martinez in the finale and the two got engaged afterwards. They ended their relationship in November 2011, however. She stayed in San Diego where she used to be a weekly correspondent for a morning show aired on the local Fox network. She has since moved on to NBC where she hosts a weekly travel show entitled “1st Look.”


2. Shayne Lamas


The daughter of the actor Lorenzo Lamas, Shayne Lamas first appeared in the long-running soap opera drama entitled “General Hospital.” In 2008, she joined the 12th season of “The Bachelor” where she won after Matt Grant decided to propose to her on the season finale. The two broke up within the year, however. Lamas then appeared in “The 13th Alley” and “Leave it to Lamas.” In 2009, she was arrested while driving under the influence of alcohol in Venice, California. After a plea bargain agreement, she was found guilty of wet reckless, which is a lesser charge. She went through rehab and probation. She got married in 2010 to Nik Richie, with whom she has a daughter.


3. Emily Maynard


Emily Maynard first appeared in “The Bachelor” when she won the heart of Brad Womack (in his second appearance on the show), who presented her with the final rose. Her life story before the show was tragic when her fiance’, the NASCAR driver Ricky Hendrick, passed away in a plane crash in 2004. The two had been dating since they were 15 and got engaged officially six months before his death. A few days after the funeral, Maynard found out she was pregnant. The child was one of the main reasons why her relationship with Womack did not work out as Maynard refused to uproot her daughter from their North Carolina home. The network then decided to get her as the eighth bachelorette. The season was shot in North Carolina to accommodate Maynard. She chose Jef Holm in the end, though the two broke up before the year ended.


4. Tenley Molzahn


Tenley Molzahn started out as a dancer and performer when she was part of Walt Disney Productions that staged shows around the world. She even got the lead part of Ariel in the “Under the Sea” tour in Tokyo Disneyland.  She was fresh from a divorce when she joined “The Bachelor” in 2010. Molzahn ended up as the last girl eliminated by Jake Pavelka. She then joined “The Bachelor Pad” that featured former participants of “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette.” There, she met her future husband Kiptyn Locke, who is a former contestant himself.


5. DeAnna Pappas


DeAnna Pappas is a real estate agent from Georgia. She was part of the historic season of “The Bachelor” when Brad Womack rejected all the women in the show in his first appearance in the show.  She did make it to the final rose ceremony and that probably led the network to offer Pappas the starring role in “The Bachelorette.” At the season finale, she got engaged to Jesse Csincsak, a professional snowboarder. They broke up after only a few months, however. Nevertheless, Pappas was awarded by Fox Reality Channel for being the most memorable reality performer of the year.  She eventually starred in Lifetime TV’s “Get Married” and Oxygen’s “Bachelorette Party.” She is now married to Michael Stagliano.


6. Trista Rehn


She used to be a cheerleader for the Miami Heat in the NBA. Trista Rehn then appeared as a contestant in the first-ever season of “The Bachelor.” She ended up as the runner-up. She was promptly offered to be “The Bachelorette” for the following year. Rehn chose Ryan Sutter and the two have been together ever since. The network paid them a million dollars for the right to cover their wedding. This was shown in a three-part miniseries that drew over 26 million viewers, making it one of the most viewed reality show episodes ever. Rehn has also appeared in television commercials and the show “Dancing with the Stars.”  She is now based in Colorado.


7. Erica Rose


Erica Rose was a diva when she appeared in “The Bachelor,” even wearing a tiara because she claimed it would bring out the royalty in her. The law student from the University of Houston did not even make it to the final rounds, but her popularity forced the producers to bring her back for some more episodes.  She then appeared in VH1’s “You’re Cut Off!” where she and other brats were stripped of their assets and forced to work for a living.


8. Melissa Rycroft


Melissa Rycroft first made the cut in the reality series “Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders: Making the Team.” She was chosen to be one of the football team’s cheerleaders. She won the 13th season of “The Bachelor,” only for Jason Resnick to break up with her almost immediately after to hook up with the runner-up Molly Melaney. She joined “Dancing with the Stars” where she placed third in 2009 and first in 2012. She also hosted the first season of “Bachelor Pad.”

From the ballroom to The Bachelorette?

Dancing with the Stars pro (and two-time champ) Cheryl Burke says she’d like to be in charge of handing out roses on ABC’s hit dating show.

“My dating record hasn’t been great the past couple of years so if I have a chance to go on [The Bachelorette] I will,” Burke, 28, told PEOPLE ay Wednesday’s 2012 NHL Awards at Wynn Las Vegas. “I’m getting old, you know, so it’s something of interest to me.”

Burke, who most recently danced all the way to the DWTS finale with heartthrob William Levy, said she’s naturally a shy person, so it’s difficult for her to meet men to date. And that’s where Chris Harrison and the producers of The Bachelorette would come into play.

“It would be fun to have a pool of guys around you and getting to know someone,” she says. “I think if I had people setting me up with different guys I think it would be easier for me to meet someone to date.”

Reminded that she is often surrounded by eligible men at events like the NHL Awards, Burke says, “I’ll be standing a corner, not approaching anybody. I’m that girl.”
