** Editor's note: Trista Sutter has a strong relationship with momlogic. That being said, she was not paid by momlogic or our parent company for access to her baby shower or any other story featuring her or her family. We simply covered the event, just as we would any other celebrity story.

Momlogic takes you inside The Bachelorette's baby shower ... plus we're giving away Trista's shower goody bag and stroller.

trista sutter and goody bag

Former Bachelorette Trista Sutter has been in the news a lot the last couple of weeks sounding off about Bachelor Jason Mesnick. But now she's making headlines for much happier reasons: She's about to give birth to a baby girl, due in April.

Trista says she and Ryan's 19-month-son Max knows he's going to be a big brother. "He knows that my big belly is called 'baby' and he knows what babies are," she tells OK! "But, then again, last night he lifted up Ryan's shirt and goes 'baby' so I don't think he quite gets it yet!"

Trista says they have a baby name in mind, but they're keeping it under wraps until she arrives.

Trista, Ryan, and Max were recently joined by family and friends at the Sonnenalp Resort of Vail in Colorado to celebrate their impending arrival.Check out party pics below.

Momlogic is giving one mom the opportunity to win Trista's shower goody bag (valued at $600), which includes a set of personalized stationery with matching envelopes from Nesting Shoppe. Readers will also get 10% off their entire order by entering MOMLOGIC into the coupon code at checkout.

One lucky mom will also win an award-winning City Mini Single stroller by Baby Jogger (valued at $230).

I get it that Trista used to be a reality star… but MomLogic, how much are you paying her for articles? A $600 goody bag? REALLY? I’m sure Trista isn’t shelling this out… Its really sad- some Moms and families are struggling with getting their mortgage paid and groceries on the table- $600 is alot of money.

Its great that Trista is having a baby, but why not focus on someone else more deserving.

Hello. I was just checking out Mom Logic’s post myself, saw your comment, and felt compelled to respond. I wanted to assure you, as it’s obviously a personal concern, that MomLogic did not, nor have they ever, paid me for my articles. They ask my opinion on things and cover certain events because people such as yourself click on the links. For some reason, and I don’t understand it either, but some people enjoy reading about a happy family, especially in these hard times. The gift bag was actually a bag that my hostesses worked really hard to put together for my guests…I had a very minimal role, basically just giving them contact information for companies I had worked with before. We decided to give one away on MomLogic, as well as Ok! Magazine, just for fun, so that maybe someone could enjoy what my guests did. I’m sorry this was so offensive to you. I’m also sorry that although we’ve never met that you have decided that I’m not deserving…of what, I’m not sure, but you are obviously entitled to your opinion and I respect that.
Best, Trista Sutter

Wow what an amazing opportunity…I would love a chance to win such wonderful goodies! Happy for Trista and her beautiful family.

Hi Trista, It is good to hear you chime in! I’m not sure how you handle the criticisms, but I’m sure you are surrounded with a lot of good people who love you. You’re shower looks fun and your dress is adorable. Hang in there, and keep giving us your two-cents. I appreciate your thoughts.

Enough of the Showers March 16, 2009, 9:41 PM

Not that it’s Trista’s doing but didn’t she just have a kid and a shower? How many of those does a mom need?

faith March 16, 2009, 11:44 PM

Trista I would like to congratulate you, ryan and baby max. Your baby is blessed to have such loving parent’s and I for one was thrilled to read about your baby shower even though my baby days are long over. I also realize there are tough times but just remember you are probably going to touch two people’s lives in ways no one can understand. I believe trista is one of the few “down to earth” reality stars left and she was paying it forward.

Stay blessed trista, ryan and max and baby sutter.

I think they make a cute couple, no matter how they got together.I entered in hopes my daugter in law& son who have a son Jordan 19 months and having a girl in June might win. My son is a Sgt in the Army and I love the stroller.Im looking for one for here. That may be the one I need to buy. He lefy for Iraq The day he was born, and he may be leaving again a month or two after Victoria is born. So as we(myself as a sgt and his dad retired military) we know you need all the help you can while in the military. I wish Trish and her family all the best.

My youngest daughter just found out she’s pregnant with her first child. I would love to win this for her!

sandy March 17, 2009, 9:32 AM

Trista - since you’re obviously reading these blogs - I would love to hear your response to other things we have addressed when we (meaning myself and other moms) discussed lots of of momlogic articles including yours. For ex: How do you respond to the lack of respect we feel you deserve for the e-mails weve seen where you beg people to vote for you even if they didn’t know you on the DWTS show and consequently was the first one of the whole series ever voted off. How do you respond to the greedy way you’ve been known to behave by agreeing to put on a show for a “modest” ahem cost of $1 million paid to you to get married for which you kept your manager’s share because you wanted more gifts. How do you respond to the fact that women (like me) were disgusted the way you presented a challenge to bachelors to satisfy you because you were never satisfied, and talking and walking like a 2-year old is the respectable way you thought to get married, and top it off with the money of course. What do I tell my daughters who are teenagers and watched the show and asked me why someone was judging people by the size of their apartments and why this same person was on the dancing show and thought everybody wanted her was nothing was further from the truth. You were called shallow several times which is very fitting. You had the nerve to put down the first bachelor just because you were bitter because someone didn’t want you. You had the nerve to put down Jason who is a self-sufficient person. Should he have been like you and stayed with it just to get the loads of gifts and free weddings? I dont want to see that, I like to see HUMBLE people. You have created an image of greed and controlling a man. It’s sad. You talk for Ryan and he never speaks and you probably like that. I don’t control my husband at all. You show all the time that you are controlling and completely dependent. You also say you wanted children because you thought it wouldbe cute to see ryan with children. That’s NOT the only reason people have children. Plus, you have to be secure enough in yourself, emotionally, financially etc - everything so that you could do it all yourself if you had to. Every mother I know thinks “goodness help her if Ryan wises up and leaves her”. I would LOVE to hear your responses to this. If this is what you call us wanting to see a “happy family”….. more power to you.

tina March 17, 2009, 9:37 AM

I believe when she says that they dont pay her for her articles, but if you notice - she says subtly that momlogic “covers” events. Meaning Momlogic pays for huge birthday parties, baby showers…etc. If trista wants to make us think she’s so modest and not accepting anything from momlogic - try not being so subtle.

enuff March 17, 2009, 9:45 AM

Jill - I agree with your message completely. I also think Trista’s response was hilarious - but i’ll give it to her that she’s trying to come across as this completely nice humble type person. But then lets it slip that she has “hostesses” and “people” and momlogis “hosts events”. This woman is not a celebrity, she is a first series always reality s how reject. But hey - she TRIED to come across like a human being - she just failed that’s all. She is greedy and milks networks…or as she caleld it “the companies she works with”. She is a bag lady, not a world renowned businesswoman LOL!!

sandy March 17, 2009, 9:51 AM

cont’d ….
so that you could support yourself if you had to. I know a lot of moms that said “goodness help her if ryan ever wises up and dumps her because he wont stand for being controlled anymore”. I would love to hear your responses to this stuff….this is the stuff that people are tired of you for. p.s. - Your comment is so egotistical when you say that if we met you we’d certainly then agree that you deserve all this tons of stuff that momlogic and other “companies you work with” keep giving you. TRY HUMILITY not greedy. You’re not winning the respect of moms by saying selfish things like that.

aditya March 17, 2009, 10:01 AM

trista is a very self-absorbing person who is clearly very full of herself and thinks she is owed the world for what exactly…nobody knows. All she really did was talk forever about wanting to get pregnant, being pregnant and then after being pregnant. There’s more to life. I have children and a career, I didn’t spend all my time talking about being pregnant and then how I lost the weight after, it’s just something that everybody does. But since Trista doesn’t really do anything else besides try to get attention for things that are so normal - she did huge interviews about just that…nothing. While you’re at it trista - why dont you talk about the complicated science involved with waking up every day.

Jill March 17, 2009, 10:23 AM

This is Jill (from the first post). I didn’t want to spark a fire storm of bashing Trista.

I specifically thought the gift bags were a little ‘over the top’in a time when we have a recession and lots of famalies are hoping not to loose their jobs or homes. That was my point. Its putting salt on the wounds, so to speak. I would of loved to have heard that at the baby shower, instead of giving out gift bags, they took the money and donated to local shelters. Most likely (I am guessing here) that the baby shower organizers asked local businesses/boutiques to donate products for the gift bags. These gift bags in turn would be featured on this site, Ok Magazine or wherever. Free advertising… I would really have liked to support those businesses if they said ‘In leiu of gift bags, these companies donated … to these shelters or food banks…’

Trista, congrats on your pregnancy. Having a baby is something to celebrate. I just figured to use your notority for a better use. In the spirit of your pregnancy, maybe help some other Moms who are less fortunate.

Wow…What a great giveaway..
I hope I win…

Anonymous March 17, 2009, 10:46 AM

Jill - you were right and people and have problems with Trista for that and lots of other things that they are bringing up and since she is apparently here we are interested in her response. I think that when Trista does something honorable, for once, in the form of anything, ie. money to charities or whatever she’ll get respected as something other then a moocher. My only comment is that it’s not right to keep continuosly covering a woman with no substance. Momlogic really should pay attention to the opinions and viewers of its readers and members. From what I can tell, and I can see it’s not just me who thinks this way, is that Trista needs a huge lesson in humility. There are families and mothers have real problems and are struggling to stay in their average homes. We dont want to hear about someone - who is famous for being the first reject on every reality series ever, getting more and more stuff paid for by momlogic or Usweekly. I liked trista’s comment though where she implies it’s some huge honor to meet her..and then we’ll all magically understand why she gets everything for nothing… my kids say…PLEASE!!! I hope I dont meet someone so shallow and selfish. If momlogic doesn’t pay attention to the members comments, you’ll lose members and then who will pay for trista’s parties.
(Nice touch trista - to say that you’re not paid for articles but momlmogic hosts events)

denise March 17, 2009, 12:11 PM

I feel compelled to respond to Sandy because she is judging Trista and Ryan in the very way she is criticizing her. She has some deep-rooted hatred that goes back seven years, but let’s be fair for once.

DWTS e-mails – Trista sent e-mails to her family and friends asking for support in her involvement w/ DTWS. I don’t think there was any deserving involved. Just support. Someone leaked the e-mail. Your accusation sounds like she sent an e-mail to everyone in North America. Not true. You state several times how greedy she is based on receiving $1 million to televise their wedding. Greed and opportunity are different. Taking advantage of what life affords you is not greed. It’s luck, good fortune. Seems like money is the root of your hatred. Walking and talking like a 2 year old? How is your voice? I’m sure you can be unfairly critczied for the way you are, but that’s not the point. Holding someone accountable for words they said many years ago is not very valid. Respectable way to marry? Perhaps just don’t tune in. Trista and Ryan are respectable by the way they live their everyday life, not tv life. Ok, Jason is self sufficient, the point of the outrage was they way he handled his break-up on tv, not cool, by anyone’s’ standards, it doesn’t come into play how self-sufficient he is. You also assume Ryan & Trista stayed together for the sake of freebies. That is pretty much the biggest insult of all of them (and there are a lot). As for Ryan never speaking, LOL! Do you follow him around everyday and record what he says? Are you a fly in their house to back up your controlling accusations? Sandy, you do not know any of that information. Lastly, the only reason Trista has children is she thinks it’s cute to see Ryan with a baby? Please, Trista is human, she is not a monster, and she is a good mom. Probably wanted to be a mom long before reality tv came into her life. Perhaps you should teach your teenage daughters to not be so judgmental of people and be happy well adjusted and accept people for who they are and not what you think is right and wrong.

sandy March 17, 2009, 12:54 PM

denise - to answer your question (how do I talk). I can tell you. I met my husband, who i’ve been married to for 17 years, IN LAW SCHOOL. I did not meet him by saying “hehe, no man eever satisfied me in bed….want to try…hehe”. So, yes I do think I went about that better then she did. Funny you should say I should teach my kids not to be judgmental….what about your beloved Trista whom you worship - judging men on her shows by mocking them for living in small places as if she deserves some kind of castle. I teach my kids it’s what’s on the inside that counts, if you prefer trista’s lessons that house sizes and bank accounts are what counts….goodness help you. And if you want to pick apart the issues step by step, you would know that her e-mail begged people that didn’t even know her to vote for her, not “just her friends”. She was booed off and you can even see the article on vote-whoring. So, it’s not my sole opinion only.

cathy March 17, 2009, 1:03 PM

I agree with Sandy. To Denise - this is not one person’s opinion, there were articles about how greedy and rude she was, we’re not making that up. There were articles attaching her pathetic e-mail about begging people to vote for her. People saw her on the show thinking she was better then everyone else. She was booed off the show. Men on the bachelorette and for seasons after on the other bachelorette shows called her shallow and greedy. Point being these are not things that one person made up. These are things that happened and you can’t go search the net and see it for yourself. So, why dont you take issue with the men she looked down on and they then called her rude and shallow. Why dont you take issue with the producer of dwts. You’re barking up the wrong tree. She did not get sued over her manager’s cut of the $1 million because of the “opportunity” it was because she was greedy and selfish. She also now has the opportunity since she’s so rich to help moms instead of sponging off momlogic for her baby showers and parties.
