The world fell in love with Melissa Rycroft Strickland when she was the winner of “The Bachelor,” during Jason Mesnick’s season. We all fell even harder in love with her when she was then dumped on national television by the man she agreed to marry so that he could actually marry the first runner-up instead. It was one of those moments in which the world was shocked, and everyone took Melissa Rycroft’s side in the story. She might not have ended up being the one married to the Bachelor that season, but she did find love with a close friend back home. She’s now married and recently welcomed her third baby with her husband of several years. Their little family is more adorable than ever, and they are a happy family.
In the time since she’s become a television star, Melissa Rycroft has made a big life change. She’s become a television correspondent, and she’s taken on the role of wife and mom. She likes to tweet about the things in life that are her everyday situations, and we love what she has to say. We thought we might round of up a few of our recent favorites for you so that you can see precisely why we love Melissa Rycroft Strickland so much.

Being Pregnant Anyone who has ever been pregnant knows that there comes a point toward the end where we all feel this way, look this way and want nothing more than to evict our house guest; and we love her honesty about it.
This is exactly how I felt at 9 am every single day of the week for the last two months I was pregnant with my twins. I’d drop my girls off at school, go directly to Publix and order a Publix sub to have for breakfast. The judgment was insane. I did not care.

Truth Not going to lie; this the truth. That last month takes 6 years to pass, and it’s always worth it. Thank goodness it finally does end at some point.
She can say it, but not out loud. And she might not be wrong in saying it out loud in the future. My favorite of my four is always the one who isn’t asking me for something, isn’t being annoying and is sleeping. Just being honest.

My middle child, also named Ava, is graduating from VPK this week and I had the same emotional breakdown when her cap and gown arrived recently. She’s not my oldest, this is not my first rodeo. She’s not even my youngest now that the twins are here (and two) but I’m still hormonal.
