Jesse Csincsak and Ann Lueders, former contestants on The Bachelorette and The Bachelor, aren’t expecting their first child until the winter. But they tell PEOPLE they’ve already picked out a name, Noah, and have doubled the size of their family in the meantime by adopting two Siberian husky puppies.
“We thought, ‘Hey, let’s just take the hit all at once,’ ” says Csincsak, 28, a pro snowboarder who won the fourth season of The Bachelorette (though his relationship with DeAnna Pappas didn’t last). “So, you get all the puking, vomiting and peeing on the carpet out of the way all at once, and then buy new furniture, all at once!”
