The host of Bachelor Pad, Melissa Rycroft was all smiles on the red carpet for World Smile Day. The host is expected a child with husband Tye Strickland. Melissa Rycroft was a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader before hitting the fame circle as a reality TV contestant on the Bachelor.


She was engaged to Bachelor Jason Mesnick for a brief time after winning the 13th season of the Bachelor. But, after Jason Mesnick admitted to having strong feelings for the runner-up the couple broke off the engagement and Melissa Rycroft went back to on-again off-again boyfriend Tye Strickland. The two married in 2009 and are expecting their first child.

The couple recently found out the gender of their unborn child, but they are keeping tight lips despite all the smiles. When asked about names, Melissa Rycroft admitted the couple was playing with possible names, but none had been singled out at this point.
