Jenna Compono’s baby may be arriving later than planned, according to The Challenge star, as she recently gave fans, friends, and castmates an update.

The former finalist is expecting her first child with castmate and now husband, Zach Nichols. However, the couple’s countdown is getting closer to the due date, and Jenna is predicting a late delivery.

That brought some of her former castmates from MTV’s reality show to give their reactions as Jenna anticipates her son’s arrival in the coming week.

Jenna Compono baby update arrives as due date approaches

It’s been several seasons since Jenna Compono has appeared on MTV’s The Challenge, as viewers last saw her in Season 36. Since then, she and castmate Zach Nichols have become husband and wife and are preparing for their first child together.

Based on Jenna’s latest Instagram update, she let fans know that her due date is approaching, with just four days until the baby’s expected delivery date.

“4 days until my due date.. no contractions or anything .. at least I don’t think😩 if I had to guess I’m most likely going to be late! My backs been hurting a bit, any back labor moms out there?!” Jenna asked on her IG post to get tips for potential back labor.

Jenna and Zach previously revealed they were expecting their first child this past Valentine’s Day. The couple then shared a video clip with the gender reveal, showing that they will have a baby boy.

The reality TV castmates then tied the knot at a mini-wedding months ahead of their baby’s expected arrival this past March.

One of their Challenge castmates is also expecting a first child soon. Spies, Lies & Allies star Kyle Christie announced he and girlfriend Vicky Turner are expecting their first child, dubbed Baby Christie, in the coming months.

Ahead of their baby’s arrivals, several other Challenge alum had children, including Double Agents’ Theresa Jones and former Real World star and Challenge champ Ashley Kelsie.
