The Bachelor at 20: A Celebration of Love airs Sunday night and fans will see plenty of familiar faces on the ABC special and a whole ‘lotta baby bumps. There are six Bachelor babies on the way in 2016 — which ladies will show off their adorable baby bellies on tonight’s show?
In addition to Jade and Tanner’s wedding, the two-hour special will have interviews and clips from 20 seasons of ABC’s popular reality TV show. Earlier in the week, host Chris Harrison appeared on Good Morning America and stated that “all the alumni are back,” so expect all five expectant moms to make an appearance including Catherine Lowe, Ali Fedotowsky, Ashley Salter, DeAnna Stagliano, Melissa Rycroft, and Erica Rose.
“It’s been an amazing ride — 20 seasons — everybody’s back,” Harrison told GMA‘s Lara Spencer. “All our alumni are back. This big happy, dysfunctional family that I love so much…”
Ashley Salter, known to many as “The Onion Girl,” got engaged to her college sweetheart, Austin Brannen, just weeks after she appeared on Bachelor in Paradise 3 last summer. Us Weekly first broke the story of her pregnancy earlier this month and fans will see her talk to Chris about how things are going as she prepares to become a first time mom in a few months.
During the same week that Ashley’s pregnancy was revealed, Erica Rose, who appeared on the Bachelor season 9 and Bachelor Pad 2, also announced her pregnancy.
In an interview with Us Weekly, Erica and her boyfriend, Galen Gantry, found out they were expecting just three months after they started dating.

“I am really excited!” Rose told Us. “We were trying, but I didn’t expect it to happen so soon. It’s something that I’ve always wanted and feel ready for, so we can’t wait.”
Erica will make an appearance on Sunday night’s special — hopefully fans will get more details on her new beau and baby-to-be.
Ali Fedotwosky (Bachelorette season 6, Bachelor season 14) and her fiancé, Kevin Manno, announced in January that they were putting off wedding plans, but for a good reason. Ali announced on her blog that they kept the pregnancy a secret “for a while” and it was “surreal” to finally let everyone know.
“I can’t believe the news is out. That’s right, we’re pregnant! It feels surreal to let everyone know, since this has been our little secret for a while now.”
Fans will see Ali on the Bachelor special along with another former Bachelorette, who is almost ready to have her second baby — DeAnna Pappas Stagliano (Bachelor season 11, Bachelorette season 4)
She broke the news to People back in August that she and her husband, Stephen, are expecting a little brother for their daughter, Addison Marie. The Bachelor 20 special was filmed in late January, so fans can expect to see a very pregnant DeAnna — she’s due February 26.
Melissa Rycroft, who was got engaged to Bachelor Jason Mesnick (season 13), but was dumped on the After the Final Rose special, is expecting baby number three with husband Tye Strickland.

The couple made the announcement on Twitter back in November and with an adorable photo that featured Melissa, Tye, and their two children, Ava Grace, 4, and Beckett Thomas, who is almost 21-months-old. Look for Melissa on the Bachelor special and keep an eye out for pics of the new baby in April or May.

Fan favorites Sean Lowe and his wife, Catherine, will also make an appearance on The Bachelor at 20 on Sunday night.
Catherine announced her pregnancy on Instagram in December and have made it clear on social media that they won’t find out what they are having before the birth, so fans will have to wait a few more months to see if it’s a little Bachelor or Bachelorette. Last week Catherine revealed that she is 19-weeks pregnant, so expect to see the first pics of Baby Lowe in late June or early July.
Watch The Bachelor at 20: A Celebration of Love on February 14 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
