But following the announcement, it seems as though things have taken a slightly darker turn for Kelly.

And she has been experiencing some serious health issues during her pregnancy.

Kelly revealed to PEOPLE that she had been diagnosed with gestational diabetes.

It’s a condition that affects 2-10% of pregnancies and refers to a pregnant person’s body not producing enough insulin.

“First of all, gestational diabetes is not your fault.

“At first I thought it was something that I had done,” Kelly explained.

“I only got diagnosed with it well into my third trimester, so it wasn’t like I developed it as some people get it from the get-go when they’re pregnant.

“I got it in my third trimester and basically, I thought it was something that I had done wrong,” she continued.

“This whole pregnancy, I’ve had no cravings except for sugar, which is something I’ve never had before.

“I wasn’t eating right,” Kelly said.

“The number one thing for me that I realized was taking me down was sugary drinks and it was juice.

“Because even though I was drinking fresh pressed juice, it still had a lot more sugar than I needed!” Kelly admitted.

She decided to cut sugar, and noticed a difference immediately!

“I’ve lost 10 pounds while pregnant! As soon as I cut the sugar out, I had a bit of a headache for a while. I’m not going to lie. It’s a bit of a shock to your system,” Kelly revealed.

“Overall, my skin cleared up. I don’t have to wear any makeup.

“My friends that haven’t seen me since I started my third trimester, now that they see me, they’re like, ‘Whoa. What changed? Your skin is perfect,’ and I know that sometimes that has to do with pregnancy, but I had pregnancy acne. I cut the sugar out and it completely went away. I think clearer,” she continued.

“I haven’t had to wear compression socks once since I cut the sugar out, which is unreal for pregnancy.

“I just have more energy. I’m sleeping better. You don’t realize what it’s doing to you until you take it away is all I can say,” Kelly said.

“I wish I had this kind of incentive prior because I’ve never been able to stick to anything a hundred percent the way that I have been doing this because I’m not doing it for myself!

“I’m doing it for my baby. But I have learned — I can’t even begin to tell you the changes that it’s made,” she revealed.
