Our family will be expanding by two little baby feet & a whole lotta love on May 14, 2020!🤰🏼✨ *this is a long caption but bear with me. I have something I want to tell you.☺️ • We had such a fun day in NYC today. {Peep the World Trade Center 💙} We went to this fun event & then walked around SoHo. We finished the day off w dinner outside & that’s where the last pic comes in. • This sweet woman named Lauren approached our table & said “Jamie! Hi! I know you don’t mind if your Frans come say hi so I just wanted to tell you that you’ve really inspired me.” (😭!!!) She went on to say that infertility has affected so many she loves … and then she thanked me for being so open about my pregnancy loss and infertility struggle. • I just have to tell you, it is women like Lauren & *you* reading this who inspire *ME*🙏🏻 The countless comments on my pics, etc. sharing your struggles of pregnancy loss and/or infertility have made me feel less alone.🙏🏻💗 • Every message I’ve read where you share with me about loss or infertility—OR never giving up & eventually having a rainbow baby—has made me feel understood & encouraged. These struggles can be so isolating at times, but I’ve realized there are so many women going through it and none of us should feel alone.💞 I have the strength to share my journey bc you first had the courage to share yours with me …and those rainbow baby stories gave me *so* much HOPE while I was in the midst of the storm…twice now.🙏🏻🌈 • I want to thank *you* for reading this long af caption🤣, for encouraging me during tough times, and celebrating with me during the good times.☺️ You have helped me far more than you’ll ever know. *You* inspire ME!

Otis’ first miscarriage was in 2016 when she lost her son, Johnathan Edward, four months into her pregnancy. In September 2018, she had an early miscarriage due to a chemical pregnancy, and in January this year, the Bachelor alum suffered another miscarriage at 10 weeks.

The “baby formed and there was an amniotic sac, but while the amniotic sac continued to grow the baby stopped at some point,” she explained in an emotional Instagram post at the time.

The reality star announced the happy news of her pregnancy on Instagram earlier this month.

“I cannot even believe it! After 18 long, painful months, two losses and negative after negative on the pregnancy tests we are *finally* pregnant again! Of course, I am being cautiously optimistic, but I have a feeling this little one is going to stick,” she posted along with photos of herself and her husband grinning with their sonograms.

She explained that she chose to go public about her infertility struggles because of the bond with other women who can relate to the heartbreak.

“Every message I’ve read where you share with me about loss or infertility—OR never giving up & eventually having a rainbow baby—has made me feel understood & encouraged. These struggles can be so isolating at times, but I’ve realized there are so many women going through it and none of us should feel alone,” Otis wrote on Saturday.

She added: “I have the strength to share my journey bc you first had the courage to share yours with me …and those rainbow baby stories gave me *so* much HOPE while I was in the midst of the storm…twice now.”

Otis and Hehner, 35, met and got married during the first season of Married at First Sight in 2014.
