Please join us in congratulating Jen Lilley (ex-Theresa, DAYS OF OUR LIVES; ex-Maxie, GENERAL HOSPITAL), who just announced she is pregnant again! “Surprise!” she enthused on Instagram as she shared a video of herself showing off her Christmas tree before zooming in on an ornament that says “Baby Wayne.” Lilley and her husband Jason Wayne are expecting another bundle of joy in May 2022!
Lilley and Wayne are already a family of four, having adopted half-brothers Kayden, 5, and Jeffrey, 3, in 2019 and 2020 while also welcoming their daughter, Julie, in 2019. “Julie was planned,” the actress told People Magazine, “but this was definitely a surprise.”
While flying off to Canada to film another holiday TV movie, Royally Wrapped for Christmas, Lilley suspected she was pregnant and was surprised when a home pregnancy test taken in her hotel came back positive. “It took a long time to comprehend it,” she confessed. “I waited until I was back and had a doctor’s appointment to verify it because I just kept thinking ‘I need a blood test.’”
While Julie is a little too young to understand, Kayden and Jeffrey are very excited to get a baby brother or sister in May, which just happens to be the same month when Kayden was born. “He says, ‘I want you to have the baby on my birthday! I want you to name the baby Kayden and then that baby will be my twin,’” she laughed. “And I’m like, ‘That’s not how twins work.’ But he’s really excited.”
And so far, the pregnancy has been going well. “This has been a little bit more of a finicky baby than Julie,” Lilley reported. “But overall, I cannot complain. I’ve had the traditional tiredness and nausea, but luckily I’ve not had it as bad as most people. I’m so excited.”
