Actress Jen Lilley, most notably known for starring in Christmas movies on the Hallmark Channel, has announced that she is pregnant! The actress broke the news exclusively with People Magazine and in collaboration with Balsam Hill, a home décor company specifically known for holiday décor.
The actress shared an Instagram reel video where she “found” an ornament in a Christmas tree that read: Baby Wayne May 2022 to share the news! The video then showed a series of images of Jen with her husband Jason and their three children.
“I’m so, so happy,” Jen shared with people. She joked that she is “going to have to get a bus now.” Jen and Jason share three children together. The couple adopted two half-brothers from foster care: Kayden, 5, and Jeffrey, 3. Kayden was officially adopted in 2019 while Jeffrey was adopted in 2020, almost exactly a year ago from today on October 30th.
The Royally Wrapped for Christmas star revealed that “Julie was planned, but this was definitely a surprise.” Jen learned of the news after noticing changes in her body. “I don’t know what it is with me, but I honestly will know like day after conception, I’m very aware of my body. I felt very pregnant and I thought, ‘This is very weird.’ I was excited, but also it was so strange. I was in this long customs line in Canada waiting for my work permit, and I’m texting my husband and our nanny via group text, ‘I think I’m pregnant right now?'”
Congratulations to Jen and Jason on growing their family once more! We wish them all the best as they prepare to welcome a new bundle of joy into the world.
