Casciano posted a similar shot at the time, writing, "Arriving April 2020. #babygirl." She then shared a photo of three positive pregnancy tests on her Instagram Story, noting that she was 13 weeks along.
When one of the pregnant star's followers asked about her birth plan, she replied, "All birth is natural. I will deliver in a hospital though not at home, and it's important (for me) to remain open and flexible as far as ‘birth plans' go. You can have a drug-free birth (I think that's what you mean by natural) or unassisted anywhere. Doesn't have to be at home."Famous Celebrity Pregnancies: Baby Bump Hall of Fame
