On Friday, Messer shared photos of Victoria in a red dress, cradling her baby bump, including one with the baby's father. The man's identity has not been revealed, but a source told Us Weekly Thursday the father was their guide on a rafting tour.
"Sometimes it takes your breakdown to create your breakthrough," Messer wrote on Instagram. "Sis clearly had way too much fun in Costa Rica... I’m always going to be here for guidance through the good and bad!"
"We may have been dealt a s– hand in life but that’s okay," Messer continued. "Our mistakes and past only elevate us to greater when we choose to be better every day!! I’m so excited to see you continue to evolve from here. Everything is meant to happen for a reason, believe that! I’m happy for you and I know it’s only growth from here baby sis! I love you [Victoria] P.S I'm stoked to be an Auntie again. We need a baby boy this time!"
Victoria also shared a photo from the same day, with her holding the hand of the baby's father.

"When will people quit pretending to be so perfect!? I haaate it! Either wish the best or keep scrolling it’s not hard! Hoping for a boy to change the game up a little [laughing out loud]," one Instagram user wrote.
The pregnancy news broke just days after Victoria's divorce from her second husband, Domenick Crapello, was finalized. Us Weekly's source said the former couple have been living apart for several months. Victoria shares a daughter, Cami, with Crapello. She and her first husband, Brian Jones, share daughter Cerenity.
“Victoria and the guy had an instantaneous connection," the Us Weekly insider said. "Leah and Victoria have been back to Costa Rica since to see the baby’s dad. Victoria went back to Costa Rica and it felt like she had left a part of herself there. It’s the perfect story for 90 Day Fiancé!”0comments
