Real World and Challenge alumni Cory told US Weekly the pregnancy was “definitely a surprise.” Taylor is 11 weeks along now and the couple found out about 2 months ago. This will be Taylor’s first child and Cory’s second however Cory never got to experience the pregnancy portion of his first child, Ryder. Cory found out he had a daughter with ex-fling and former Challenge co-star Cheyenne Floyd when Ryder was 6 months old. Cheyenne took Ryder in for various tests and realized, via a medical condition, that her boyfriend at the time could not be the father.
Cory told US Weekly that, “Just being there from the day she found out that she’s pregnant and knowing that it was mine, I knew that I was going to have to step up.” He also expressed a deep sense of gratitude and excitement for the news. “It’s exciting for me. It’s gonna be a lot, but I’m excited. I never went to an ultrasound, you know? I never went to the doctor’s appointments to see her check-ups and things like that. So for me, this is like my first baby almost, as weird as that sounds.”
When asked about the gender of the baby, Taylor told US Weekly, “I just originally thought it was a boy, but now I don’t know,” Selfridge says.”Everybody’s saying girl, so now I just feel like it’s a girl!”
Although Taylor was nervous how Cheyenne would take the news, Cheyenne responded with nothing but love and support for Ryder’s future sibling. Cheyenne and Cory have proven to be a powerful coparenting duo and we are excited to see this modern family grow once again.
