May 1 (UPI) — Jeannie Mai’s ex-husband is going to be a first-time dad.
People reported as much Monday after Freddy Harteis announced girlfriend Linsey Toole’s pregnancy in a since-deleted Instagram post Sunday.
The Jasmine Brand captured a screenshot of the photo, which showed Harteis holding a book titled I Love You, Daddy.
“If you’ve seen me in the last six months you have seen me not able to wipe a crazy grin off my face because of a beautiful woman who captured my heart,” Harteis captioned the picture. “Yesterday, my heart about burst out of my chest when we found out our precious child, would be our precious DAUGHTER.”
“I cannot wait to hold and kiss my sweet girl, she will be crazy and beautiful like her mama. Inside and out!” he added. “I am overwhelmed with excitement and hope for this beautiful little life on the way!”
Toole has since made her social media accounts private, although her Instagram biography includes “Baby Momma.”
Mai announced her separation from Harteis in October after 10 years of marriage. She said on her talk show, The Real, in February that her choice to not have children was a factor in her divorce.
“That was definitely one of the big, main factors,” the 39-year-old television personality said. “I wish [happiness] for him now. Honestly, in my list of prayers, I pray for happiness for him every day … He’d be an amazing dad.”
Harteis stars on the Sportsman Channel series Hollywood Hunter. He posted photos on Instagram with Toole in April following their visit to Mammoth Cave in Kentucky.
