In the comments, Baird's Southern Charm castmates shared their well-wishes for the expectant mother. "You're going to be the best mom," Madison LeCroy wrote. "So happy for you!"

"You will be the BEST mama in the world!!" Cameran Eubanks said.

This is the first baby for Baird, who was previously engaged to boyfriend Todd Baldree in July 2016. A few weeks before she was to be married, Baird ended the engagement.

Almost a year later, Baird opened up about her decision to break it off with Baldree while speaking to The Daily Dish in June 2018. "The main reason is I had temporarily moved to Greenville [in South Carolina] where his kids live and where his main residence is, which is about three hours away from Charleston."

"I just wasn't happy. We had this vision that I would be able to do all this artwork, and it was just too chaotic," she said.

Revealing that the breakup "wasn't for lack of character" and saying that she still had "a massive amount of respect" for Baldree, she admitted that "it was traumatizing for a couple months."

"But you get to a point where you can recognize somebody's strengths, and you can recognize somebody's faults, and they're not your own. And I just value the things that I love about him, and I just choose to keep that close to my heart."

"Obviously it was heartbreaking. It probably did take me a good four months to start talking to him again. But we were engaged. We were about to be married. It was a big jump," she concluded.
