It might have been hard to picture it when these stars made their mark on television back in the day, but many of your favorite reality celebs are now proud moms! From "Jersey Shore" vets to the "The Bachelor" alums who searched for love during primetime, Wonderwall.com is rounding up the reality stars who've transitioned into motherhood, starting with Audrina Patridge! She rose to fame on "The Hills" after it premiered in 2006. As the resident party girl on the series, we watched Audrina chase boys, including her on-again, off-again beau Justin Bobby. Nowadays, Audrina is a newly single mother of one, daughter Kirra. In September 2017, she filed to divorce her husband of 10 months, Australian BMX athlete Corey Bohan, after he allegedly verbally and physically abused her.
We first met Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi back in 2009 when she joined a cast of unknown guidos and guidettes for a little MTV show called "Jersey Shore." Perhaps the most memorable member of the cast, fans enjoyed tuning in to see Snooki drink and smoosh in Seaside Heights, New Jersey. Since then, the reality starlet has done a total 180, complete with two darling kiddos!
Ali Fedotowsky debuted on the small screen in 2010 when she competed against 24 other women for "The Bachelor" star Jake Pavelka's heart. She quit the show after landing in the top four when her job took precedent over finding love, but fans were happy to learn she would return as "The Bachelorette" later that year. Though love didn't last with her top pick, Roberto Martinez, Ali did go on to find her very own happily ever after!
2005's "The Girls Next Door" star Holly Madison was a staple on the popular E! show, which chronicled the lives of Hugh Hefner's many girlfriends, until 2010. The Playboy Bunny actually split from Hef during that time, in 2008, but eventually went on to find a more age-appropriate significant other.
Kristin Cavallari got her start on reality television in 2004 on "Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County" when she was a junior in high school. Her reality days didn't end there — she starred on subsequent seasons of the hit MTV show, and later on spinoff "The Hills" in 2009. Despite the whole world watching her relationships unfold, it wasn't until the cameras stopped rolling that Kristin found her other half.
We used to know this lady as DeAnna Pappas, when she competed for Brad Womack's love on "The Bachelor" back in 2007. She landed in the final two, but Brad rejected both women and opted to remain a bachelor. DeAnna returned to television the following year, this time as "The Bachelorette," but the love she found on the show with Jesse Csincsak didn't last. Don't worry, DeAnna eventually found love… and even kept things within the "Bachelor" family!
Audiences met Jenni "JWoww" Farley back in 2009. She was the tough and tanned party girl who quickly became best friends with co-star Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi on MTV's "Jersey Shore." Little did viewers know that despite all the drama and the fights, her onscreen beau, Roger Mathews, would end up being her future husband and baby daddy!
"The Bachelor" fans remember Desiree Hartsock as the one Sean Lowe sent home after that super-awkward hometown date. Fortunately for the bridal stylist, she was picked as the lead for Season 9 of "The Bachelorette" and returned to find love on TV in 2013. This time, it worked: Desiree ended up with the man of her dreams, Chris Siegfried!
Just like Holly Madison, "The Girls Next Door" star Kendra Wilkinson was one of Hugh Hefner's many live-in girlfriends at the Playboy mansion. The former Playboy model and Hef went their separate ways but remain great friends, despite Kendra moving on and starting a family of her own.
Catherine Giudici was one of 25 ladies looking for love on Season 17 of "The Bachelor." Though she had plenty of competition, Catherine came out victorious, winning Sean Lowe's heart and nabbing the final rose. The two wed during a live television event in January 2014.
Reality TV pioneer Nicole Richie became a household name when "The Simple Life" debuted in 2003. After stepping out of dad Lionel Richie's shadow and finding her own fame, Nicole started dating Good Charlotte member Joel Madden in 2006. Then came the little ones…
Nicole Richie and Joel Madden are still going strong more than a decade later. The duo welcomed their first child, daughter Harlow, in 2008, and son Sparrow followed shortly after in 2009. Nicole and Joel tied the knot the following year in December 2010.
In 2009, Jillian Harris tried her luck at finding love on reality television on Season 13 of "The Bachelor," where she wooed Jason Mesnick. After coming in as the second runner-up, Jillian made enough of an impression on Bachelor Nation to score the coveted spot as the next season's "The Bachelorette" lead. She picked Ed Swiderski that season, but the two didn't last long. Fortunately for the Canada-based interior designer, she not only found another successful reality TV franchise when she started hosting "Love It or List It, Too," but also found love… off camera!
Rachel Reilly was half of a "Big Brother" supercouple after finding love with fellow houseguest Brendon Villegas during 2010's Season 12. Against all odds, the duo made it to the altar, marrying in September 2012. Next for the reality competition couple? A baby!
Rachel Reilly and husband Brendon Villegas welcomed a darling daughter named Adora in April 2016. We wonder if she'll grow up to be a "Big Brother" contestant!
Like the other Bachelor Nation stars, Ashley Hebert first tried to find love as a contestant on "The Bachelor." After Brad Womack sent her packing during Season 15 of the show, Ashley rebounded to become "The Bachelorette." Amongst her suitors? Future husband J.P. Rosenbaum!
