Former Big Brother winner Rachel Reilly and husband Brendon Villegas made a special appearance on Big Brother 17 on Wednesday night to gift fans with a very big announcement indeed! Speculation was rampant that Brendon and Rachel might be announcing a new addition to the family on the way.
Although fans were all a twitter that we might be seeing Rachel Reilly pregnant headlines after the show on Wednesday night, some Big Brother alumni were quick to jump in and deny the couple’s big news had anything to do with a baby on the way.
Big Brother alumni Amanda Zuckerman jumped on Twitter to put the wet blanked on rumors of a Rachel Reilly baby.
I love how everyone thinks #BRENCHEL is pregnant, I CANT WAIT UNTIL YOU FIND OUT THEIR ACTUAL JUICY REVEAL!!! THIS IS SO GREAT!!! Hahahaha!!

The other fan debated rumor of what Brendon and Rachel might be revealing was the possible announcement of a Big Brother All Stars season coming up next. There has been quite a lot of fan requests on social media this year for an all veterans season for Big Brother 18.
So what did Rachel and Brendon have to say in their big announcement on Big Brother 2015 on Wednesday night?
Rachel and Brendon chatted a bit with Julie Chen before the big reveal. Rachel says it surprises her that there are no real floaters at the end of Big Brother 17. Even Johnny Mac. They’ve all played the game in their own way. Brendon thinks Johnny Mac represents all those who got evicted and came back really well. But he says Johnny Mac would have to win the final competition to convince the Jury he deserves to win.
Now it’s time for the big annoucement! Well, it looks like the speculation from the fans was indeed true and Rachel and Brendon announce that they are expecting a #brenchelbaby on the way! So Amanda was apparently totally messing with us! Congrats to Brendon and Rachel on their future son or daughter!
