Southern Charm’s Eliza Limehouse Pregnant with First Child

Following the news that she has said “I do” to fiancé Mark “Struthers” McBride Jr., Eliza Limehouse has announced that she is expecting her first child.

The Southern Charm alum shared the happy news with PEOPLE and confirmed that she is expecting a baby boy with her husband. “I was really surprised!” Eliza said of finding out that she is pregnant during a recent interview with PEOPLE. “I was feeling a little off so I decided to take a pregnancy test and it was positive. For the first few minutes I was in shock, but Struthers was immediately so excited and so supportive.”

Eliza, who appeared in Season 6 of Southern Charm, said that she couldn’t wait to welcome her little one, who is due this December. “I always knew I wanted to be a mom,” she shared. “I’m just so grateful and excited. I can’t wait to meet my baby. It’s such a blessing.”

The news of Eliza’s pregnancy comes just a week after she revealed that she and Struthers, who got engaged in February, had wed in a private ceremony at her grandparents’ estate in South Carolina. “The day was perfect,” Eliza told PEOPLE of her wedding day, which she also called “the best day of my life.” “I’ve never felt so calm and at peace.”

Eliza said that she and Struthers had already been thinking about having a small and private ceremony prior to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. “It felt like fate,” she told PEOPLE. “It was just me and Struthers. We didn’t invite any family — we wanted the day to be completely about us and our love for each other. It was so incredible.”

Eliza’s grandparents watched the ceremony “through the window,” but she was able to “have a few guests” at her wedding.” “I’ve always known that I wanted my horses to be involved in my wedding, so after the ceremony we took photos with them,” she said. “The horses were so cute and they knew it was a special day and they behaved perfectly.”

Southern Charm returns for Season 7 on Thursday, October 29 at 9/8c. Catch up on the entire series through the Bravo app, and get your first look at the upcoming season, below.

Pandora Charms and Bracelets – Myth and Facts

In Greek Mythology, it is said that Pandora was the first woman to ever walk on Earth. When Prometheus stole the secret of fire from Mt. Olympus, the gods became angry that they decided to punish mankind. Zeus, the god of gods, ordered Hephaestus to create a woman out of Earth. This woman was given by all the gods of Olympus, gifts that were supposed to bring misery to mankind. She was given beauty, charms, deceit, cunning, boldness and more. After she was given all these gifts, she was named Pandora, which means "All Gifted".

She was then taken by Hermes to Epimetheus, Prometheus' brother.
