‘Below Deck Med’: Hannah Ferrier Revealed Pregnancy After Fan Leaked Photo

While fans were thrilled to learn Hannah Ferrier from Below Deck Mediterranean was pregnant, the announcement didn’t come because Ferrier was ready to share the news.

Ferrier recently revealed on Twitter that a fan leaked a photo of her with a baby bump from her private Facebook account. The fan commented on Twitter that Ferrier asked her to remove the image, which is when Ferrier shared that she was forced to share her news because of the leaked photo.

“You posted a photo from my personal Facebook before I had announced it and forced me to announce before I was comfortable,” Ferrier replied to the fan who seemed to be confused. “THAT’S why I asked you to take it down.”

The fan thought Ferrier had already announced her pregnancy when she shared the photo. “I’m not sure but it [was] already out there somewhere so I shared the photo,” the fan replied.

Ferrier is playing plenty of James Taylor for her child

Despite having to go public earlier than she had planned, Ferrier seems to be happy with all the well wishes. She shared on Twitter that she’s been listening to James Taylor for the sweetest reason too. “Fun fact: I was conceived after a @JamesTaylor_com concert and truely believe I am alive because of him! My baby is going to grow up on his music – like I did,” she wrote.

Ferrier also used pink hearts in her tweet, which prompted fans to wonder if she is going to have a daughter. “Do all the pink hearts mean you know you’re having a girl? Am I just now picking up on that or reading too much into your hearts?” the fan asked.

But Ferrier shared with Bravo’s The Daily Dish she wants to keep the gender of her baby to herself. “Hahaha. I’ve always used the pink hearts but I like your detective work!” Ferrier replied to the fan.

She also had a rough first trimester

At five months pregnant, Ferrier is in her second trimester of pregnancy. Most women start to feel better if they experience morning sickness during the first trimester. Plus they may feel more energetic during the second trimester.

Ferrier shared with Bravo’s The Daily Dish that she was hit with morning sickness. She now has a new appreciation for crew and guests who experience seasickness. “I kind of am one of those people that if I’m sick, I give it a day or two and then if it doesn’t get better, then I just kind of ignore it and keep going, and with pregnancy, it’s not just you, so you can’t do that. You can’t just say, ‘Oh, I’m gonna ignore that I’m feeling like this,’ because you’re harming your child,” Ferrier said.

“So I think that for me was incredibly frustrating, just having been so sick for maybe like two months,” she continued. “There were some times where it was like 10 to 12 days, just 24/7. I don’t know why they call it morning sickness. It’s very strange because it’s not. It’s all day. So not being able to control that and not being able to feel better, just my normal life was difficult.”
