Summer House’s Lindsay Hubbard Expecting First Child After Carl Radke Split

“It was a surprise and a shock at first because we were not trying or even planning,” revealed the Bravo star, who is keeping her boyfriend’s identity private.

Congratulations are in order for Summer House’s Lindsay Hubbard!

On the Fourth of July, the Bravo star announced on Instagram that she’s pregnant and expecting her first child with her boyfriend, whose identity she has kept private.

Hubbard, 37, shared the exciting news in collaboration with Clearblue, posting a photo of her bare stomach, along with sonogram photos and her positive pregnancy test.

“Warning: This post contains more fireworks than the 4th of July! WE’RE PREGNANT!!!!!💥💥 I truly believe the universe has a bigger plan and this is it! 💫,” she wrote in the caption of her Instagram post. “The second I had a feeling, I took a Clearblue Early Digital Pregnancy Test and getting a clear result, in words, made the next steps sooo much easier.”

“My boyfriend and I are beyond excited to welcome our little #HubbCub this Holiday season 2024!! 🦁🎁,” she continued, adding the hashtags, “#ClearbluePartner #ClearblueConfirmed.”

Hubbard’s pregnancy announcement comes less than a year following her split from ex-fiancé Carl Radke. The former couple ended their engagement in late August 2023, just a few months before their planned November 2023 nuptials.

Summer House fans witnessed the fallout of Hubbard and Radke’s engagement in the Season 8 finale, followed by further tension on the reunion show.

During a recent appearance on Amanda Hirsch’s Not Skinny But Not Fat podcast last month, Hubbard denied she and her new beau were expecting a child, noting while they’re in a good place, they weren’t looking to start a family just yet.

Hirsch was among the many who took to the comments section of Hubbard’s Instagram announcement to congratulate her on the pregnancy news, writing, “WOWOWOWOOWOWOWOW CONGRATS LINDSAY.”

Several of Hubbard’s Summer House costars and fellow Bravo stars also expressed their excitement and congratulations. Paige Desorbo referenced a moment from last season saying, “My manifestation even scared me….congratulations 💙💗.” Kyle Cooke commented, “Congrats! You’re going to be an amazing mom (I think it’s a boy 🐻.” Samantha Feher said, “congrats mama ❤️,” while Andrea Denver added, “Congrats Linds! 😍🩷.”

Vanderpump Rules stars Katie Maloney and Ariana Madix also shared their well-wishes. Maloney wrote, “Love you! So happy for you! 🥹,” while Madix added, “Lindsay!!!!! omg congratulations! ❤️❤️.”

Following her announcement, Hubbard spoke with PEOPLE about her pregnancy, recalling the moment she found out she was expecting. “To think where I was this time last year is insane to me,” she said. “Looking back on it, it’s just so clear to me that the universe had a plan.”

“The journey is really just crazy,” she continued. “All of a sudden, for a girl who’s always wanted to be a mom, there I was at 37 years old, staring down the barrel of being single and questioning when dreams of having a family would happen. And then this incredible man comes back into my life, and next thing you know, I’m pregnant. It’s like the universe was saying, ‘See? This is the time. This is the guy. Now you’re ready.’ I feel like my prayers were answered.”

Hubbard revealed that she and her boyfriend were only a few months into their relationship when she found out she was pregnant. “It immediately and unmistakably displayed with words ‘You are pregnant,’ and as shocking as that was, having a really clear result just helped alleviate the unknown,” she recalled of seeing the positive pregnancy test. “Those next steps are a little scary, but at least they’re easier just knowing one way or another what you’re working with.”

The former publicist shared that she was out of town when she discovered the news, and waited until she got back to tell her boyfriend. She revealed that while they didn’t plan the pregnancy, they are excited about becoming parents.

“Obviously, it was a surprise and a shock at first because we were not trying or even planning, but we had some honest conversations and it just felt so right for both of us,” she told PEOPLE. “We have a very loving, caring, and healthy relationship. I finally feel like I met my match with him.”

“He’s just so excited to be a dad and proud to be having a child with me,” Hubbard said of her boyfriend, who PEOPLE said works in biotech investing. “It just means the world to have someone like him by my side. And yes, it is a lot of pressure on a new relationship, but I think because he’s the right man because we are so bonded and connected and communicate very effectively with each other that it hasn’t felt like work.”

“You know, I’ve almost made terrible mistakes in my past because of a biological clock that we naturally as women have, and this is the one time where it just all feels so right,” she added.
