Teddi Mellencamp gave fans a look at her unborn baby girl’s face on her Instagram Stories page on Tuesday, February 18, after tending to a checkup at her doctor’s office.
“Our angel is over 7lbs and I think has daddy’s lips,” Mellencamp wrote in the caption of her photo, tagging her husband Edwin Arroyave and including a series of heart emoji.
In Mellencamp’s photo, her baby girl’s face was seen clearly as one of her arms was spotted resting on her cheek.
As filming began on the 10th season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills last summer, Mellencamp confirmed to Us Weekly magazine that she and Arroyave were expecting their third child together early this year.
At the time of her unexpected announcement, Mellencamp was just 14 weeks along.
The child will be the fourth child for Arroyave, who also shares an older child with a former partner.
Mellencamp and Arroyave got married in 2011 and share two children, including daughter Slate and son Cruz.
Because Mellencamp went through in-vitro fertilization to conceive her first two children, she was completely shocked to learn that she and Arroyave had conceived their third child naturally.
“My husband said, ‘I don’t want to see you going through IVF again — that was brutal,’” Mellencamp said. “It was so many rounds, but this time we really weren’t doing anything! I was on vacation! Just having fun with my family! It was a complete surprise. I didn’t even know I was because I didn’t have a regular cycle.”
While Mellencamp is a fitness fanatic, that doesn’t mean she’s going to be driving herself crazy trying to get back into shape after welcoming her third child.
Instead, she’ll be taking her time as she focuses on her family, her health, and her ongoing role on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, which featured her at odds with Lisa Vanderpump when fans last saw her on the show’s ninth season last year.
As fans will recall, Mellencamp accused Vanderpump of pushing a negative story about Dorit Kemsley in 2018.
Throughout the past several weeks, fans have been learning about the drama of season 10, which seems to be based around romance rumors regarding Denise Richards and Brandi Glanville.
While Richards’ rep has denied an affair that occurred between the two women, Glanville has continuously shared cryptic social media posts in which she has spoken about things she is “not lying” about but not said directly what she is referring to.
The new season will air sometime in the coming months on Bravo.
