Former Houstonian Erica Rose, who made a national splash with her tiara and outspoken comments on Season 9 of The Bachelor, is pregnant. Rose revealed the news earlier this week, telling US Weekly that she is expecting a child in September. 

Rose now lives in Los Angeles, where she is the director of business development for Gentry Law Group. The child's father, Galen Gentry, is an attorney at the firm.

"I am really excited!" Rose told US. "We were trying, but I didn’t expect it to happen so soon. It’s something that I’ve always wanted and feel ready for, so we can’t wait."

She added that the couple will likely marry after the baby arrives "since there's so much to do."

It's a busy time for the Rose family as Erica's mother, noted silhouette artist Cindi Harwood Rose, is rumored to be a central figure in the Bravo reality series Married to Medicine: Houston, which is scheduled to premiere later this year.

And Erica's brother, Ben Rose, is currently making his first bid for elective office, running for Texas State Representative in the 134th District.

Erica Rose brought her own tiara to attract the attention of Bachelor Prince Lorenzo Borghese in the popular reality show and quickly became season 9's resident villain. She went on to star in Bachelor Pad‘s second and third seasons and the VH1 series, You're Cut Off!
