In August, Ricci announced her pregnancy news on Instagram alongside an ultrasound image. “Life keeps getting better,” she shared.
Hampton, whom she wed two months after the pregnancy announcement, also shared the ultrasound images on his page, similarly captioning his announcement, “Life Keeps getting better.”
