** 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.

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).

Enter to win Trista's shower goody bag and a City Mini Single stroller!

Trista, don’t listen to all these haters. They probably just didn’t have the combination of beauty, education, and personality to get on the Bachelorette and to reap the ensuing benefits and are now green with envy!!! Best wishes to you and baby #2! :)

Good luck with baby #2 Trista! Hopefully it’s go smoothly this time.
To the others: lesson from mom101- spread love not hate- life is too short and too beautiful for these hateful remarks.

HOW exciting, what a great prize, we just had our first Grandchild after many many heartaches for our Daughter this would be an awesome win we would give her, Thanks for the chance!!

Rhonda March 24, 2009, 4:35 AM

I would love to win this. Lay off Trista and Ryan for pete’s sake. They’re just a happy family.

megan - if you have your head up trista, that’s your problem. I am very happy with my life and i didn’t have to find a controllable man or sponge off a network for my wedding. with that logic - you should be praising the rest of us who DID THE EXACT SAME THING IF NOT BETTER then your beloved trista. you’re just feeding her ego, she already thinks she’s the prettiest, but it’s whats on the inside. And on the inside, trista put others down because they didn’t live in mansions, and put people down with that condescending nature she has, and everyone knows it. Even that dorky Apple Computer guy Steve got farther then her in dwts because he has humility which people like. Trista could neither dance nor had humility which is why nobody voted for her, despite her begging them to. Nice Try Trista - to say that you put in there “if you think i deserve it”. Yeah I’m sure she has “education”, she is using it well too - being a bag lady and clearly stated in the comments here that she lives off his salary because she doesn’t want to work. So, megan - if you’re going to sing someone’s praises - dont forget these types of things in your selective bias comments.

alicia March 24, 2009, 10:09 AM

yeah, they’re just a happy family. She’s a talentless moocher and he’s a spineless jellyfish who lets himself be controlled by the moocher. That statement she made about people wanting to see them in these hard times was beyond arrogant

Megan March 24, 2009, 11:47 AM

Re: vannessa

Education: physiotherapy grad school
Beauty: attracted a handsome looking guy
Personality: whether you like it or not, got her on 3 reality TV shows
You sound angry and jealous. Time to get off mom-logic and work on thyself.

Re: Alicia
Do u also get jealous of Paris Hilton? She is afterall a talentless moocher. Can’t be jealous of everyone you see on celebrity news. Also time to get off mom-logic and work on thyself.


Reese March 24, 2009, 12:03 PM

Wow! You ladies are JEALOUS to the max and quite frankly STUPID. Why are ur remarks laced with so much jealousy if you don’t want to feed Trista’s ego? Time to wise up. - Reese L.

Megan - if that’s what it takes to impress people like you, then you would just think I’m great! lol. I went to law school, graduated with honors, and met my husband in law school. I didn’t meet my husband by challenging them to make me climax, and then controlling him. I agree with Vanessa - even the computer guy got farther then Trista did and that says something about Trista, that her begging e-mail didn’t pay off and if you want to continue to worship her, even though she thinks way too highly of herself and needs humility lessons. Nobody agrees with her that she’s so great, except you megan. But then again money does change everything - it shouldn’t but your’e showing that it does.

Hey Ladies- was one of the companies that donated product in exchange for publicity to Trista ‘s shower. The first thing we want to say is that we have participated in many celebrity events in the past, Trista was the first one to actually write us a HAND WRITTEN thank you card, signed by herself. Also, we commend her for giving smaller non-corporate, Mom-run companies a chance to gain publicity at a fraction of the price that we would have to pay. Trista is helping out other women in this economy, by allowing them to showcase their products at her shower. Its a small cost, for a chance to have your company in OK Magazine.
Second, were we disheartened after reading all of the post made by angry readers. We feel that these comments should not even be allowed or tolerated. This website is for mom’s, it should not be used as a vehicle to slander someone’s name. Regardless of what people think of Trista, she is a wife, and a mother and most importantly a human being. If you don’t like her, why waste your time reading about her in the first place? To attack someone in that manner is critical, judgmental and uncalled for.

alicia March 24, 2009, 1:07 PM

Well then I guess you will just have to do with the free speech amendment that everyone uses all the time on here. If you want to create some kind of world where all you want to receive is greatest kindest only kissing up type comments - we suggest you move to mars because here, in america not just here meaning momlogic, people will call someone out on actions and behaviors that are wrong, or in trista’s case - greedy, selfish, rude etc. And they will also voice their opinion, as they are perfectly entitled to do so about what they think. And what everybody I know thnks is that Trista is completely undeserving of all this because everything on the shows she was on, she talked only about how she wanted more and mroe free stuff, and she never once did anything for someone else. People are tired of her getting more free stuff from momlogic when there are mothers out there with real problems, trisa’s comment about “hey you people in hard times, look at me” is so beyond arrogant and if you’re telling us you endorse this woman and her self-absorbed attitude….goodness help you

vanessa March 24, 2009, 1:54 PM

I agree. There is no reason to give a moocher, who was paid money to get married, who was paid throughout the run of the shows and was paid again and again by momlogic and some magazines - there is no reason for someone like that to get more and more parties and gifts when there are moms out there worried about taking care of more basic needs in these “tough times” that trista scoffs at.

Sacha March 24, 2009, 1:57 PM

What’s the deal with DWTS? I didn’t see that show. Isn’t it just dancing, how would it even come up that she thought everyone fancied her?

Shannon March 24, 2009, 2:34 PM

Wow. I know that everyone is entitled to their opinions, but I have never seen such judgment from people who dont even know the source of their ridicule. I would guess that none of you actually know or have even met Trista. You are basing your judgment on things you hear and read; in other words-gossip. Lets see, if I were to do the same, I would not have very positive things to say about Vanessa, Alicia, Sandy, and the rest of you who have been so negative on this post. And I would be basing my decision on words you actually typed yourself, not something I heard through the grapevine. I’m sure you have friends and they enjoy your company, and maybe if I got to know you, I might not think that you were cruel and judgmental… so I’ll just wait to make my decision until I meet you; if that day comes.
If you have kids, what kind of example are you setting for them? I was shy in school and observed the ‘bullies’ making fun of other kids. It always broke my heart. How would you feel if your child was the bully at school and responsible for making other people feel so small? Take a second and imagine how you would feel if you saw your child treat someone the way you are treating Trista?
Bottom line, why waste your time trying to break someone down? Why dont you spend time with your kids, volunteer, or start a charity. The world could use some good right now and it doesn’t take much to make a difference. It could even start with something as small as an apology.

Vanessa March 24, 2009, 3:33 PM

Actually Shannon - people are not annoyed with trista over made up reasons that are “rumors or stuff we thought we heard”. People have seen trista on tv and heard certain things come out of her mouth, or read in magazines certain things quoted out of her mouth - I never saw a lawsuit where Trista sued magazines because they printed stuff she claims she didn’t say….nor did she sue the publisher of the articles that laid out her e-mail begging people , even strangers, to vote for her. So, your whole theory goes out the window. Just because you selectively pay attention to the stuff you think is great and overlook the contradictory, greedy, selfish, and overall rude things she does all the time, that’s not our problem. She thinks of herself as some great giver, just because she had one extra bag and now wants to give it away when she never paid for anything in the first place, except sponge off momlogic yet again - they already paid for her parties and showers. If she’s such a giver, lets see her do something for someone else who has it rough, not give them her leftover garbage. While you’re on the subject of lessons to children - why dont you tell your precious trista - to tell her kids not to judge people by the size of their houses or bank accounts the way she did and to, maybe, get a job and work for a living and earn things yourself. I have a son that’s a doctor and a daughter in medical school so I think I’m doing fine. And neither one of them go to where they are by walking and talking like a baby and challenging people to satisfy them in bed, like your friend trista. So, everything you said in your statement is pretty much shot down, (since you wanted to attack how I raise my kids).

Jenn March 24, 2009, 4:26 PM


Get a LIFE and get over yourself. You really should find better things to do with your time then sit at your computer waiting to attack the next person to post on this forum. You are showing no class and must be a very unhappy and miserable person that has way too much time on your hands! I do not even know you but feel that I should pray for your black heart.


Tracy March 24, 2009, 4:56 PM

The hateful posts here, if one reads them in greater detail, seem to be posted by 1 or 2 people pretending to be all sorts of different people to present an image that Trista is not well-liked. Notice all the disrespectful and hateful ladies keep talking about the Dancing with the Stars incident when that was more than 5 years ago and that nobody would remember unless they are obsessive about Trista. Certain words and phrases are also repeatedly overused by this group of haters (and you know who you are) pretending to post under multiple names to generate the image that Trista is not well-liked when in fact, and no offense to Trista here, who the f*** thinks about Trista all day long? So to the one or two stay-at-home moms with too much time and depressed self-esteem: try to generate more versatile characters instead of the recurrent “Sandy, Vanessa”, “Alicia” personalities! Or another plan: get off your computer and lost some weight to get yourself on the cover of US magazine. Maybe then we can all praise your excellent personalities because we would KNOW who YOU ARE!!!

Vanessa March 24, 2009, 5:38 PM

Tracy - I wrote all the messages under my name, nobody else wrote messages under my name nor did I write messages under anyone else’s name. I can’t speak for anyone else, but I did not write any other messages except mine and nobody else has used my name either, so I think you should find some other theory to plant in people’s minds, attack other bloggers all you want but leave me out of it.

Anonymous March 24, 2009, 5:53 PM

It is possible that Trista is a kind, well-meaning person, who just so happens to express herself in a way that makes her appear contrary to this. For example, when she said if (God forbid) she lost her daughter, or if she was born in poor health, that she would try for another instead of going through with her plan to get sterilized. While this statement comes across as cold and ?!?!?!, I honestly do have a hard time believing that anyone could be as insensitive and cold as that. I think she just sometimes has a case of verbal diarrhea, but means well underneath it all. After all, she is not a celebrity, and not really as well versed in how to conduct interviews as real stars are kwim?

Just my thoughts on it.

Sacha March 24, 2009, 5:57 PM

I actually feel that maybe the way Trista represents herself in interviews is not really who she is at all. A recent example would be where she mentioned that if (God forbid), she lost her daughter or if she was born in poor health that she would try for another instead of going through with her plan of getting sterilized. I have a very hard time believing *anyone* could be as cold or insensitive as those statements would suggest. I do believe she loves her kids, so maybe if she worded herself very poorly in this case, perhaps it happens a lot, which is why so many feel so negative towards her.
