He continued, "My wife is already a great stepmom and I know she’ll be an amazing mom to our baby. We have grown a lot together over the years and I cannot wait to take on this next phase of our lives together. There’s no one else I rather be on this journey with."

The Challenge Mania podcast co-host told PEOPLE that both he and Nicole were fascinated by the growth of their one-on-the-way. Derrick said they used pregnancy apps to keep up with the baby's progress.

"It’s amazing how a baby can go from being the size of a poppy seed, to a brussel sprout, to a lime, we can see an image of it," he shared back in the fall.
