Below Deck Sailing Yacht star Alli Dore is pregnant!

Alli shared the exciting news via Instagram on Monday along with a series of photos that showcased her growing baby bump as she posed with her new beau, Benny Thompson.

“So excited for this new adventure with you and our little ocean baby,” she captioned the June 21 post.

Dani Soares, who recently welcomed a baby girl, wrote, “YYAAAYYY CONGRATULATIONS ???????????? Lilly can’t wait to meet her new friend ❤️❤️❤️ You [two] are gonna be amazing parents cause you are [two] amazing humans!”

Chef Natasha de Bourg commented, “My dearest Alli you have no idea how [thrilled] I was when I found out about your pregnancy. My heart is filled with joy knowing that you deserve nothing but the greatest of love. That tiny little bud will have the most amazing mom on the world so full of life and love … can’t wait for the borders to be open to come and meet Aunty my little bud …love you and congrats.”

Meanwhile, Benny also took to his Instagram account to announce the news to his friends and followers as he praised the mommy-to-be.

“Pregnant?!” he began the caption. “So proud of you, you’re going to be the most amazing mumma. Couldn’t be more excited for the epic journey we’ve begun.”

As fans know, Alli was previously in a short-lived relationship with co-star Gary King, and viewers watched their messy split play out on the show. Gary later apologized for the way he treated Alli following their breakup, but it seems the apology came a little too late because that ship has sailed (pun intended) as Alli has definitely moved on.

Alli first introduced Benny to her followers on June 13 during a Q&A session on Instagram after a fan asked the stew to confirm whether she has a new boyfriend.

“I do!” she responded. “The love of my life, my angel boy. We’re currently moving into our new house together we’re both so excited! He’s got a heart of gold and treats me like a precious jewel. I’m really lucky.”

Alli also revealed that she and Benny have been friends for 12 years, and they reconnected once she returned to Australia after filming season two of Below Deck Sailing Yacht.

“When I got back up to Australia, I flew up to where he lives to hang out with him and some friends,” she shared. “We have so much fun together and the timing was right so it just happened naturally and we fell madly in love and I’m very happy.”

The Below Deck Sailing Yacht season two reunion airs tonight on Bravo at 9/8c.

When I read the headline I thought, “My God, what happened on that boat.” Happy to see the baby isn’t Gary’s. ????????????

I was like WTF is in that water?

Thank God she got over Gary. Congrats to the expecting parents.

LJ73 June 21, 2021 - 4:07 pm

Thank the lord it’s not Gary’s! Can you imagine birthing the spawn of that giant Lego block head- ouch!

the underground train June 21, 2021 - 4:09 pm

My vagina hurts just thinking about it

Jitters June 21, 2021 - 4:15 pm

If it was Gary’s, I would hope she would name it Simba.

Lol. Truth!

Alli Dore sounds like the Fish Special at a restaurant with a name like The Embers.

Major upgrade! Congrats!
Gary is a major douche

Am I just that old? why are people have babies with someone they barely know? ok update- I didn’t read enough – apparently she knew the guy for a number of years.

Abel Guillemin June 21, 2021 - 12:56 pm

Being friend with someone for 12 years isn’t really something I would put in the category of “barely knowing someone”, no ?

BimboSlice June 21, 2021 - 1:16 pm

This guy is way hotter than Gary.

Jitters June 21, 2021 - 1:34 pm

Agreed (although, to be fair, it doesn’t take much to be hotter than Gary).

BimboSlice June 21, 2021 - 1:59 pm

I think the boat life must really do something to your mind, to think Gary is hot, and hot enough to fight over.

Pippi Long Nipples June 21, 2021 - 4:22 pm

Can you imagine how he’s gonna look in about 10 years?

Jitters June 21, 2021 - 3:37 pm

It must. As exciting as yachting seems, I am glad I never got into it for this very reason!!

Prycer June 21, 2021 - 11:56 pm

I bowl of cereal is hotter than Gary.

abetty98 June 21, 2021 - 1:47 pm

What body of water were they in? I need to stay out of that one.

Jitters June 21, 2021 - 1:48 pm

Based on the photo, she looks like she’s 5-6 months along… I wonder when the reunion was filmed and if we’ll hear anything about her pregnancy. I would love to see Gary’s reaction.

Oh, and PSA: reunion part 1 is tonight and reunion part 2 is tomorrow night. I was thinking part 2 would air next week so thought I would share!

the underground train June 21, 2021 - 2:44 pm

Thanks for the heads up. I would have totally missed part 2.

doggiedaddy June 21, 2021 - 2:06 pm

Well she definitely has a type.

Mazel Tov!!

And shut up Natasha.

I really hate to sound old but does no one one date someone and develop an actual relationship for more than 2 or 3 months before deciding “we’re not ready or mature enough for a relationship or marriage so we’re just going to have a baby together and see how that goes”. WTF?
If you’re not ready for a committed relationship, you’re certainly not ready to co-parent or the responsibilities of a child.
