Margaret Minnicks has been an online writer for many years. She writes articles that are interesting to her readers.

Big Brother and The Amazing Race alums Jessica Graf and Cody Nickson are expecting their first child on April 11, 2019, just two days before Cody's 34th birthday. That means Jess is a little over 11 weeks pregnant. She stated they wanted to enjoy the good news themselves before announcing it to their fans.

The pregnancy comes seven months after Cody proposed to Jess on February 13, 2018. They were planning a fall wedding. Now they have added planning for parenthood to their list.

The engaged couple announced their good news on Monday, September 24. They found out the good news in August, but they waited to let others know right away. They posted the announced on Instagram along with a photo of them holding the photo of an ultrasound.


"Big Brother" Season 19 Alums

Jessica Graf and Cody Nickson met on Season 19 of Big Brother. Neither one of them won the $500,000 grand prize for being the champion. In fact, they didn't even come close. Cody was evicted on day 58 and became the first member of the Jury. He won the $25,000 prize because he was voted to be America's Favorite Houseguest.

Jessica, 27, and Cody, 33, began a showmance known as Jody. They seemed to be more interested in each other than in playing the game. Throughout the season, Jess and Cody had many feuds with the other contestants. Most of the houseguests didn't like the way they played the game. They could put up with Jessica more than Cody. Since she was associated with Cody, they turned on her especially after Cody was evicted. Jessica was left in the house to fend for herself, but not for long because she was evicted a short time later.

The alums returned on Season 20 of Big Brother to host the second Power of Veto competition.


"The Amazing Race" Season 30 Alums

Graft and Nickson participated in the 30th season of The Amazing Race. They worked better on this reality show because they worked as a team. They were the winners and became the first former Big Brother contestants to win the Amazing Race

They took home the $1,000,000 grand prize along with the $5,000 prize they won earlier during the race. Remember, Cody had won the $25,000 by being America's Favorite Houseguest on Big Brother. Therefore, they had a lot of money to begin the lives together.

They used part of the money for a house together. They were already living together when they became engaged.

It was no surprise that the couple won The Amazing Race because they were both disciplined as they competed. After all, Nickson previously served in the United States Air Force and United States Marine Corps. He and Jess worked well together as a team. Their fans are thinking they will do the same as they raise their family together.

Showmances on 'Big Brother'

Graf and Nickson's relationship is just one example of how some showmances can grow into something much deeper after contestants leave the reality show.

There have been more relationships and marriages outside of the Big Brother house than those from The Bachelor, The Bachelorette, and Bachelor in Paradise.

On Jess' Instagram post, she said the Nickson baby will be the fifth Big Brother baby. Cody is already the father of 6-year-old daughter Paisley from a previous relationship. He and Jessica talked about her on Big Brother. The former Marine and Jess are excited about adding to their family and giving Paisley a brother or sister.

Fans of Cody and Jessica look forward to keeping up to date about their wedding plans and the birth of their little one.
