Booth, who first graced our screens as a contestant on Arie Luyendyk‘s season of “The Bachelor,” celebrated her pregnancy news with a glossy photo set on the ‘gram. However, the Nashville-based influencer was quick to address the tinge of bittersweetness her announcement brings.
In the caption of her photo set, Booth wrote a touching tribute to her late father.
Her tribute began, “This has undoubtedly been my most challenging season of my life thus far. I’ve never felt such overwhelming sadness and pure joy at the same time. It’s been difficult to be grateful for the good as if one of the most important people in my life is missing the celebration,” she said.
The 30-year-old mom-to-be touched on the sweet aspect of feeling her father’s presence and involvement in her blessed event. Booth continued, “While I wish I could tell my dad the good news in person, it brings me peace that he knows about it long before I do. Welcoming a new little life while mourning the loss of another proves that high emotions can exist simultaneously, and I have no doubt my dad had a hand in this…”
She then concluded her announcement with a shout-out to her husband-and father-to-be!
“Happy heavenly Father’s Day to the first man I ever loved,” she wrote, “and happy soon-to-be-Fathers Day to my forever.” (via People)
Some of Booth’s Bachelor Nation gal pals were on hand to help her celebrate her big news!
‘Bachelorette’ alumna and fellow recent bride-to-be Becca Kufrin wrote, “So excited for you and Taylor to build this life and welcome the little one into the world! Auntie Boops can’t wait to spoil them like crazy!”
Luyendyk’s wife and Booth’s fellow ‘Bachelor’ castmate Lauren Burnham Luyendyk commented, “So happy for you Tia!” and decorated her wish with some heart emojis.
Fellow “Bachelor In Paradise” alumna Natasha Parker added a sweet tribute to Booth’s father to her well wishes. She wrote, “CONGRATULATIONS!! So soo happy for you! Your Dad is looking out for you then, now, and always.”

Having a baby on board only adds to the joy of the couple’s wedding plans which are underway!
The future Mr. and Mrs. are hard at work crafting their big day. Booth gave Us Weekly a glimpse into where the pair currently are in their wedding planning.
The blushing bride-to-be revealed, “We haven’t had to do much so far, which is nice. I’m not really in the thick of it yet…”
Searching for the perfect and dreamy location is next on the couple’s to-do list.
“We still don’t have a venue- don’t have it, like, set in stone, but once I have that, then I’ll have a date. Then, she added, I can choose vendors and it’ll really get rolling. So fingers crossed it all works out!”
Bachelor Nation has no doubt Booth’s big day will work out! Plus, how cute would it be if the couple’s bundle of joy gets to play a role in the pair’s big day?
