Mrs. Carter: There is a new addition within the world of Big Brother, and it’s not some sort of shocking season 20 twist — instead, it’s a baby!
In a new post on Instagram (see below), Jessica Graf confirmed that she and fiance Cody Nickson are expecting their first child together! This baby comes around one year following the end of Big Brother 19, which is when the two parties first met and fell in love. They had one of the most-committed showmances that we have seen in quite some time, and it was pretty clear coming off that show that they were going to be sticking together. Their popularity, which including Cody winning America’s Favorite Houseguest, led to them eventually going on The Amazing Race together — which they eventually won. They’ve remained active on social media ever since.
Graf notes that this is the fifth Big Brother baby that has come from the show — Jeff and Jordan (season 11) already have two children together, while Rachel and Brendon (season 12) and Daniele and Dominic (season 13) also each have a baby.
While Big Brother executive producer Allison Grodner insists that they do not cast the show specifically with showmances in mind, there is clearly something about the format that makes people fall in love with each other. A big part of it may have to do with stripping people of technology and other things that they are used to.

WE’RE PREGNANT! And I’m over the moon! I’m so excited to bring our first child into this life we have created together! I’ve been pretty quiet on Instagram lately. I’ve been avoiding posting stories and photos as much as I normally do because we’ve been taking this time to really enjoy all the great blessings we have in our life ❤️ Considering our engagement was leaked before we could tell anyone, it’s been so great to be able to share our new addition with our loved ones before making this announcement! I’m a little over 11 weeks and we plan on bringing our little angel into the world on April 11, 2019, just two days before Codys birthday 😄 We’re honored to be adding the FIFTH Big Brother baby to the world! We can’t wait to meet you little one and we already love you more than anything! 👶🏽 #MomToBe #BabyOnBoard
