Looks like we're going to have to wait a little longer to see Ali Fedotowsky of Bachelorette fame all decked out in a white wedding dress! The blonde beauty just canceled her wedding to fiancé Kevin Manno. Before you start freaking out, no, Fedotowsky isn't getting back together with her former reality TV suitor, Roberto Martinez. And this lovely lady is still totally a bride-to-be. As it turns out, Fedotowsky and Manno had to put off their "I do's" and cancel their Mexico destination wedding because of the Zika virus. What a buzz kill, right? (Get it? Buzz? Mosquitos...)
The former reality television star has been engaged to her TV host beau since September of last year, when he presented Fedotowsky with a standout sparkler featuring an emerald-cut center stone and a pavé diamond halo. And Fedotowsky is currently not only a bride-to-be, but a mom-to-be as well! The couple revealed in January that they were expecting their first little one, saying, "You see, last year, when we started planning our wedding, we couldn't find any good ring-bearers or flower girls, so we decided to make our own. Ha!" Too funny, Fedotowsky! But their reason for postponing their big day is anything but, with the fear of the dangerous virus becoming an unwelcome wedding crasher.
"We were planning on Mexico, that was our dream," the bride-to-be shared with Us Weekly. "But now this Zika thing is really messing things up!" Yes, darn that Zika for causing a pandemic, severe brain malformations, and canceling weddings!
"Obviously I can't go because I'm pregnant," Fedotowsky further explained. "But now there are all these reports and it's not fair to all my guests." Well we can definitely agree that the Zika virus would be, like, the worst wedding favor, ever.
"So anyway, now we're starting from square one!" said Fedotowsky. "We had a venue and it was all ready to go. It's such a bummer!" You know what's a bigger bummer than a pushed-back wedding date? Fevers, joint pain, rashes...
Honestly, we're really disappointed at having to wait to see Fedotowsky walk down the aisle. But, hey, at least we know she and Manno will eventually get to that altar. And maybe they'll even have their daughter to serve as a totally adorbs flower girl by the time they do!
