Dani Soares is expecting her first child!
The Below Deck Sailing Yacht star announced the exciting news on April 25 via Instagram by sharing a sweet photo where she posed in a black crop top, which exposed her growing baby bump.
It’s just you and I little baby ❤,” she captioned the post.
The Australian native was immediately met with congratulatory messages from some of her co-stars, including Alli Dore, who wrote, “Beautiful incredible brave woman. I am so proud of you and you always have support from my family and I. I promise.”
Chef Natasha de Bourg also left a sweet comment, writing, “It will ‘Never’ be you and the baby alone I will always [be] your biggest fan and support.. Love you.”
Dani, 33, did not reveal the paternity of the baby, but the stew’s boatmance with deckhand Jean-Luc Cerza Lanaux, 24, is currently playing out on the show. As fans know, Jean-Luc is the youngest member of the crew, and he has previously shared that he’s never been in a serious relationship. When Dani appeared on Watch What Happens Live earlier this month, host Andy Cohen asked the stew if she was “concerned” about Jean-Luc’s lack of relationship experience.
“Um, a little bit, but at this stage, that was not what I was looking for,” she explained. “It’s just having a bit of fun.”
Jean-Luc also recently commented on his relationship with Dani when he spoke with MEAWW on April 5.
“Me and Dani aboard Parsifal found an escape you could say in one another … I think the viewers are going to see how things pan out between me and Dani really soon so I don’t want to spill the beans yet, you guys just have to stay tuned,” he teased.
Below Deck Sailing Yacht season two airs Monday nights on Bravo at 9/8c.
