‘Siesta Key’ star Madison Hausburg and beau Ish Soto told PEOPLE, that they are expecting and share photos in which they are happily showing off her baby bump and ultrasound images. In August 2020, Hausburg announced that she was engaged to Soto, who is a former producer of the MTV reality series.
She told PEOPLE at the time, “I have never felt as safe and as loved as I do when I’m with Ish. He reminds me every single day how special I am and he makes me want to be the best possible version of myself. Our love story is anything but traditional, but it’s our love story, and I can’t wait to see how it plays out. I’m on such a high! I still can’t believe it. … I’ve found my forever.”
And now the soon-to-be-parents said in a statement to PEOPLE sharing their excitement, “We are beyond excited to finally share the news of our baby, due January 1. We already love this little baby so much and can’t wait to meet them.”
On the show, the relationship of the pair was a focal point last season, Hausburg was originally forced to defend their 20-year age gap to friends and family. However, her loved ones eventually warmed up to the relationship, and during the season finale, her dad gave them his blessing to move to Los Angeles and buy a home together.
Despite their huge age difference, the couple is quite compatible and sweet with each other, as last September for Soto’s birthday, Hausburg wrote on Instagram, “Happy birthday to the kindest, most generous and caring man I know… my fiancé!! Your compassion for others consumes me and inspires me daily. I can’t wait to do forever with you!! 😘 I love you I love you I love you!!”
Hausburg said on PeopleTV’s Reality Check back in August 2020 that the “biggest misconception” about her relationship with Soto “is that we’re always on the rocks.”
“The only part that you guys get to see is when we’re discussing these big life decisions, and that is a big part of our relationship, but we’re also, for the most part, very happy,” she said at the time.
