‘Especially me still being legally tied in this marriage and having this whole public thing around it.’

Nielson and Bowles discovered they were having a baby in August, which came just three months into their new relationship and six months after her split with Randone.
‘It caused me a lot of anxiety and worry but, ultimately, I just knew, like, this was an incredible lesson for me to grow, to learn and to love,’ she explained.
‘And have faith in myself and Miles and my future — and know that God gives us only what we can handle.’
Nielson went on to add that she hopes her situation can become ‘ an incredible story’ that she will be able to share one day that can ‘inspire a lot of women’ who find themselves in a similar situation.
‘We’re so excited about the future,’ she continued.

The Total Body Guide founder revealed that she didn’t contact Randone before she announced her pregnancy in November in an emotional YouTube video.
‘I was planning on telling my ex, but when the time came, I was like you know what, it just doesn’t feel right to message him right now,’ she shared before revealing that they have since spoken.
‘We actually talked yesterday and he texted me and said he thinks I’m going to become a wonderful mother and he’s really, really happy for me and hopes we can become friends and be there for each other,’ the reality star added.
