It's been a few weeks since Richelle revealed her amazing news. You caught it, right? :D
Excited to announce my husband & I are having a baby in August-the same week Bloodlines, Succubus Revealed, & the VA graphic novel come out!
11 Feb

This is such wonderful news, and we're extending our warmest congratulations to Richelle and her husband!

Of course, this unfortunately means readers are going to see less of her for a while. Richelle writes about that in her subsequent blog post. For example there won't be any signing tours for Succubus Revealed or Bloodlines, seeing as the baby is expected around the same time as the books are released. :-)

The celebratory tweets that followed, from Richelle's author friends, were so funny that I couldn't resist compiling them in this blog post. There are quite a few of them, but I hope you'll enjoy them all:
: @ Oh wow, congrats Richelle!!! I loved that movie -- 3 Books and a Baby! :) Hooray!!
11 Feb

: @ OMG yay yay yay! Congratulations!
11 Feb

: @ Cons = SOBER
11 Feb

: @ I'll just have to pick up the slack for you.
11 Feb

: @ I just teared up over that. Not sure if it was your kindness or hormones.
11 Feb

: @RichelleMead That is going to be one beautiful baby. Congrats to you. And don't worry, @jayewells and I are happy to drink for you at cons. :)
11 Feb

: @ Wow, that's really going to complicate the tour schedule.... ;) (Congrats to you and Jay--you'll be great parents!)
11 Feb

: @ SQUEE!! Go you!! Congrats!
11 Feb

:@ CONGRATULATIONS! Our gift to you, a Bloodlines Baby Bjorn, is on it's way! ;)
11 Feb

: @ That's a good idea. The baby needs to start advertising as soon as it's out of the womb. College isn't cheap.
11 Feb

: @ Think of the possibilities! Bloodlines Bottles, Bloodlines Baby Shampoo, Pacifiers with little fangs on them!

The pacifier that Richelle tweeted reminded me of a great photo I'd seen of Charlie Bewley with a baby from a Twilight convention:

I guess you can question the parents, but I love it!! :D
: @ i think the baby shower should be at chapel..is that wrong? Im really really happy for you guys...;)
11 Feb

: @ Happy hour martinis are never wrong, though there is something a bit morbid about the mortuary setting...
11 Feb

: @ lol..maybe a pastel themed bar????
11 Feb
(For those wondering about Chapel: I did a little research (and asked @psynde about it), and it's a bar in Seattle where at least parts of Team Seattle meet up sometimes. You can find it here.)

: @ Sooo many congrats!!! I guess it would be unfair to toast you, though. ;)
11 Feb

: @ No, it's okay. I expect my friends to drink for two now.
11 Feb

: @ @ - WE WILL HELP. That is just the kind of slack we are very keen to pick up!
11 Feb

: @ @ With Team Seattle, I feel like "baby shower" = "bar meet-up with Richelle as designated driver."
11 Feb

: @ OMG!! CONGRATS to you and the hubby!!! thats so exciting!!! i'll have to send you a vampire themed baby gift ;)
11 Feb

: @ Ha, thank you, but no vampire themed stuff needed. I'm going to be happy to make do with pastels. :)
11 Feb

: @ are you with child. lady?
11 Feb

: @ Indeed I am. The announcement's gotten buried a bit. Thank goodness makeup always fits.
11 Feb

And later, Richelle gave us this little tidbit:
My husband's announcement about the baby included, "She assures me I'm the father." Such love in my household. :)
11 Feb

: @ such a caring soul he is...
11 Feb

: @ Indeed. :)
11 Feb

: @ That's why you married him.
11 Feb

The following day, Richelle tweeted:
Thank you to everyone for all of the well wishes and congratulations! I'm overwhelmed by all the support out there.
12 Feb

Also touched by all the authors pals who've come forward & offered to "drink for me" now that I can't. Such self-sacrificing friends I have.
12 Feb

: @ I thought expecting mothers were supposed to "drink for two?" Or is that wrong?
12 Feb

: @ You can't drink before noon if you're pregnant. It's scientifically proven to be harmful.
12 Feb

: @ @ but you can smoke anytime, right?
12 Feb

: @ Yeah, that's probably fine. :) @
12 Feb
LOL!


Finally, I had to add a quote from Richelle's blog post announcing the pregnancy. So awesome!
Yes, that's right. Finally, all the parenting skills I learned from watching Mad Men and Toddlers and Tiaras are going to pay off.
Again, huge congrats to Richelle and Jay. We wish you all the best!
