Baby Bergmann is on the way later this year, as The Challenge star Wes Bergmann revealed he and his wife, Amanda Bergmann, are expecting their first child together.
The two-time MTV Challenge winner and recent All Stars 2 champion shared the announcement in a carousel post featuring multiple photos of the couple together.
In several photos, they are holding up ultrasound images revealing the evidence that Amanda is pregnant. Also pictured with the happy couple is their beloved dog, Penny.
The first photo has Wes looking excitedly at Penny, standing between him and Amanda as she holds the images.
Additional photos have Wes lying on the couch with Amanda as they hold the images in hand or all smiles as they sit together with Wes presenting the ultrasound.
There’s also a shot of Wes and Amanda standing outdoors together, holding up a beautiful gold balloon for “baby” to announce the exciting news.
Wes Bergmann announces anticipated birth of ‘future Challenge champion’
In his Instagram post, Wes dubbed their pending bundle of joy “Baby Bergmann” and even went so far as to suggest they had a “future Challenge champion” on the way.
“Baby Bergmann, coming this September,” the first portion of his and Amanda’s IG caption says with an emoji for an active volcano.
“We would like to take a second to thank all of our friends, family, and supporters who continue to help us become the best versions of ourselves. We aim to pour all of that love into this child in an effort to make him/her the next great, ginger, genius,” the always-humble Wes likely wrote.
They also extended good wishes and positive vibes to all others out there, hoping to become parents in the future.
“While we are entering into this new stage of life with immense gratitude, we know the season of waiting too and send love & strength to anyone else hoping to one day become parents themselves,” the caption said.
