In October, the actress announced she was pregnant, sharing the exciting news on Instagram. In the series of photos, Alderson held up a collection of sonogram photos and smiled next to her fiancé.

The couple also posed together on a beach, with Alderson wearing a skin-tight black dress that hugged her growing bump. "Words can't describe the happiness 😭🙌💖 BABY GIRL CROUSORE ✨Due January 2024✨," she wrote in the caption.

"Having a baby with my soulmate/best friend is the biggest blessing I could have ever been given✨💫."

Alderson announced her engagement to actor and comedian Crousore in July, posting a few photos of the proposal to her Instagram. “I’ve never cried so many happy tears in one night🙌,” the actress wrote in her caption. “@crousore You make all of my dreams come true & I cannot wait to spend forever with you!❤️❤️❤️❤️."

Crousore popped the question at Pier 84 at Hudson River Park on July 15, almost exactly two years after the couple had their first date at the same spot.

“Taylor and I met up for the first time ON THIS PIER after falling for each other virtually for a month 1/2 prior. We were both so nervous but SO hopeful that we would be just as big of a match in person as we felt we were over the 800+ videos we had sent to each other back & forth,” she shared. “And lucky for us, after sharing our first kiss on that pier, we knew [we] were a match.”

Crousore also shared the happy news on his Instagram, penning a lengthy tribute to his new fiancée.

“When I had my first date with @krisalderson on this pier, from the moment we first sat on that bench and kissed, I knew I was going to ask her to marry me,” Crousore shared on Instagram. “I just figured I’d give it a reasonable 2 years to ask so I didn’t sound even crazier after telling you ‘I love you’ on the first date.”
