Longtime “Challenge” veteran Cory Wharton and his girlfriend Taylor Selfridge made the exciting announcement this week that they are expecting their second child together, Cory’s third. While the post announced the baby’s expected arrival date, there was no mention of the gender of the baby, but some fans speculated that Cory and Taylor accidentally revealed it.
Cory and Taylor posted a series of photos from a photoshoot with their daughter Mila Mae and Cory’s daughter with Cheyenne Floyd, Ryder. In one of the photos, Ryder and Taylor held onto an ultrasound while in another Cory cradled Taylor’s baby bump. “To the newest member of the family: June 8th, We will welcome a new member to the family!” Cory wrote on Instagram.
However, some eagle-eyed fans noticed a pop of color in the cream-colored first photo that they thought hinted at the baby’s gender. In the shot, Mila is smiling at her mom and her blue-tinted hand is resting on Taylor.
