Actress Rachel Boston, who has stared in many Hallmark movies over the past few years, has revealed that she is pregnant! The star of A Christmas Carousel, 39, shared a stunning photo of herself wearing a white full-length dress holding her baby bump in front of a gorgeous outdoor landscape. Her pregnancy wasn’t the only news she shared!

It’s a girl! In her caption, the new mom-to-be shared a message to her future daughter. “Thank you for choosing me to be your mama. I am so excited for our journey ahead and can’t wait to show you this beautiful world! You are a light on this earth. I can already see it and feel it.” Rachel revealed in her hashtags that her daughter would make her arrival in 2022 and she also tagged #tinymiracle.

Rachel’s fellow Hallmark stars congratulated her exciting news in the comments section. Actress Lacey Chabert wrote, “I can’t wait to meet this precious little baby girl!!!! So thrilled for you.” Actress Jessica Lowndes commented, “SO happy for you!!!”

The Check Inn To Christmas star had previously kept her dating life quite private. She posted about her boyfriend on her Instagram page in August 2020, but it wasn’t until December of last year when she finally introduced her boyfriend (and his name) on TV. Tolya Ashe joined Rachel on Hallmark Channel’s Home And Family while she was promoting her new Christmas movie. Tolya works as a chef and appeared on Cutthroat Kitchen in 2013.

Rachel reveled last June that she and Tolya had become engaged. She shared a photo of the two of them together with the caption “My forever love” and geo-tagged their location as “engaged.”

Congratulations to Rachel and Tolya on the news of their first child together! We wish them all the best as they prepare to welcome their daughter into the world.
