Big Brother alum Brendon Villegas and the winner, Rachel Reilly will debut their daughter, Adora during the live eviction tonight on CBS. The Big Brother fans have been waiting for Rachel to pop in to show off her baby girl, Entertainment Weekly reports.
Rachel Reilly and Brendon Villegas met while filming Big Brother 12 in 2010. A year later, they were engaged when they returned to play Big Brother 13. Rachel always wanted a family but wanted to make sure they were both ready emotionally and financially for a baby before she tried for a family. In 2012, the happy couple was married on the top of the AT&T Center in downtown Los Angeles. Last year, “Brenchelle” announced on Big Brother that they were expecting a baby, so Rachel wanted to bring Adora on Big Brother to show her dedicated fans her little girl.
“This summer we are full-fledged parents. I’m always competing so of course it makes sense that I had the first Big Brother baby.”
In the video, Brendon says that they are full-fledged parents this year, and have watched the live feeds while feeding Adora in the middle of the night. He claims that Rachel is the “most famous” Big Brother winner, and he is “a lucky man” that she chose to marry him.
Rachel explains that she is always in “competition” mode, and it makes “perfect sense” that they beat Jeff Schroeder and Jordan Lloyd in having a baby. She claims they “even beat Danelle Donato.” Brendon kindly reminds her that it isn’t a competition and to relax, and she laughs and says, “Oh Brendon it’s always a competition.”
Many Big Brother fans have wondered how the couple decided their daughter’s name. Rachel explained that it was a mix of a beautiful name combined with the meaning of the name they selected.
“We came up with the name Adora because we adore her, she’s ‘Adora-ble,’ and we wanted a Spanish name to celebrate her Hispanic heritage. Borealis was Rachel’s must-have middle name because she’s always been infatuated with the natural beauty of the Aurora Borealis, the Northern Lights. Of course, Brendon loves the name because he is a physicist and science nerd! We love the name because Adora lights up our lives like the Borealis lights up the night sky.”
Rachel shared on her personal blog that a few months ago she decided to take Adora to a modeling audition. Apparently, she wants her infant to break into the entertainment business and hopes that it may be a way to “save some extra money” for her when she gets older. Reilly stated that she didn’t get a good feeling about the audition, and wouldn’t be surprised if they didn’t hear from her. Rachel suspected the issue was the casting director wasn’t entirely sure what they wanted in a young infant quite yet.
Rachel has been vocal on Twitter about the Big Brother season this summer. She has been a supporter of Paul Abrahamian and has rooted for Michelle Meyer’s at times too. Like many Big Brother fans, she voted for Victor Arroyo to win Week 10 Care package because he’s going to need the safety after targeting Corey Brooks and Paulie Calafiore.
Reilly has voiced disappointment in the men on Big Brother 18 because it appears they don’t know how to treat women. They have degraded and repeatedly called the ladies horrible names. Big Brother 18 fans, watch CBS tonight to see Adora’s TV debut and to catch up with Rachel Reilly and Brendon Villegas.
