Hallmark Channel News: Jen Lilley Shares ‘Happy’ Pregnancy

In her Instagram post, Jen wrote, “Surprise!” The Hallmark Channel movie star dressed for Christmas and stood by her holiday tree to gush about her baby surprise. Lilley also thanked People magazine for helping her spread the news about her pregnancy.

Hallmark Channel News: Star Takes French-Canadian Pregnancy Test
In 2019, Jen and Jason welcomed their daughter Julie into the world. But although the couple planned that pregnancy, the Hallmark Channel star admits that this baby was definitely a surprise. Jen discovered the news as she was traveling to Canada for her new TV film, “Royally Wrapped for Christmas.”
“I don’t know what it is with me, but I honestly will know as the day after conception, I’m very aware of my body,” shared Lilley. “I felt very pregnant and I thought, ‘This is very weird.’ I was excited, but also it was so strange. I was in this long customs line in Canada waiting for my work permit, and I’m texting my husband and our nanny via group text, ‘I think I’m pregnant right now?’ ”
But when Jen took a pregnancy test, it came out negative. However, she still felt that she was pregnant. So she ordered a new test on Amazon while in Canada. And that’s where life got complicated!
“I’m in Ottawa and this is like a French-Canadian test, not one I’ve normally seen, the directions were in four different languages. I see one line in the control and one line in the other. On an American pregnancy test, that’s a negative. So I go to throw it out. But I’m looking at the test and I’m looking at the box, I’m looking at the test and I realize this one is positive,” Lilley recalled.
Jen Lilley Shares Adoption Update
In addition to their daughter Julie, Jen and Jason are currently a parent of two half-brothers, Kayden, 5, and Jeffrey, 3. They adopted their sons from foster care in 2019 and 2020. And Jen welcomes this pregnancy as an opportunity to talk with her sons about adoption.
Lilley revealed that her pregnancy has given her the opportunity to talk to her older son about his own adoption. “Because he says, ‘So when I was in your belly,’ and I’m like, ‘Okay, let me talk to you about that.’ So it’s been a really wonderful introduction to explain adoption to him. That’s been awesome and he’s really excited.”
Jen and her husband look forward to welcoming their fourth child in May 2022. And that means Kayden will share his birthday month with his new sibling. Both her sons feel “really excited” about their new sibling, shared Lilley.
