On her blog "Ask Ellen" she shared that this would be their second child

This is our second child. We lost our first, a boy named Diggory, in the second trimester in June 2021. We were able to capture his memory thanks to a nonprofit called Memories From Monroe, which preserved prints of his hands and feet after delivery by the awesome staff at University of Michigan Metro Health-West.

Is Ellen Bacca Expecting A Boy Or A Girl?

Ellen said that she and her husband know the sex of their baby but are giving viewers the chance to guess for 24 hours and then on Friday at 7 p.m. she will share the sex of the baby.

My wife and I have not tried to start a family yet, but we've had several family members and friends struggle with fertility and miscarriages.

When I see a public figure like Ellen being so open It makes me appreciate her even more. I guarantee she is helping at least one person that might have gone through something similar.

Congratulations Ellen and Mark! My prediction is that a baby boy is on the way.
