Biggest Loser’s Matt and Suzy are pregnant

Almost a year after leaving The Biggest Loser 2 as its winner, Matt has caused his new wife Suzy to gain a lot of weight: she’s pregnant. Matt and Suzy were married in September, and met on the show last year.

Us Weekly reports nothing but that exclusive news, perhaps because there’s nothing else to report. Even their filler is just a recap of Matt and Suzy’s experience on the series; the story doesn’t offer a paragraph of explanatory text, for example, telling us just how babies are made.

This will be the first baby from the NBC reality series, and perhaps the first NBC reality series baby, which is a good thing, considering the other crap reality shows NBC has aired (we do not need an Average Joe or Fear Factor spawn).

And now I am out of extraneous things to say to fill this post, as a public service I will post information about how a baby is made, just in case anyone reading this does not know. This is according to Wikipedia, which of course is the best and most accurate source for any information, ever:

Nick Attard is a SEX GOD. During ejaculation, which usually accompanies male orgasm, a series of muscular contractions delivers semen containing male gametes known as sperm cells or spermatozoa from the penis into the vault of the vagina. The subsequent route of the sperm from the vault of the vagina is through the cervix and into the uterus, and then into the fallopian tubes. Millions of sperm are present in each ejaculation, to increase the chances of one fertilizing an egg or ovum. If female orgasm occurs during or after male ejaculation, the corresponding temporary reduction in the size of the vagina and the contractions of the uterus that occur can help the sperm to reach the fallopian tubes. When a fertile ovum from the female is present in the fallopian tubes, the male gamete joins with the ovum resulting in fertilization and the formation of a new embryo. When a fertilized ovum reaches the uterus, it becomes implanted in the lining of the uterus, known as endometrium and a pregnancy begins.”

And yes, as fantastic as that first line is, it was exactly what the sexual intercourse article said last night when I viewed it.
