Beth Stolarczyk got married, is pregnant

The Real World Los Angeles‘s Beth Stolarczyk, one of the show’s most well-known alumni, got married over the weekend, and revealed to a tabloid that she’s pregnant.

Beth married “real estate developer Matt Ciriello over the weekend in a private ceremony on the beach in Santa Monica,” Us Weekly reported, citing Beth’s rep. The magazine reports that she has a “six-month baby bump” and the “baby girl is due in the beginning of December,” but that’s some shady math, as nine months would be mid-November, so she’s probably not quite yet to the six-month mark.

She said, “I have never been happier in my life. We are over the moon. I was not expecting to be pregnant on my wedding day, but then I’ve always done things a little controversial.” Beth, who is now 39 and once appeared in Playboy, is referring to her reputation from the man Challenge shows she’s participated in since the late 1990s, making her one of the few early-year stars who’s still actively involved with the show. She’s 39.
