The 24-year-old announced her pregnancy over Instagram, sharing a picture of an ultrasound with her fans and admitting she was "emotional" over the news.
Perched on the lap of her fiancé Michael Jackson, Darby cradled her pet dogs in her arms in the snapshot and beamed at the camera.
She said: "Our little Family is officially growing!!!! Baby Jackson we can’t wait to meet you.
"I’m so emotionally excited to be able to finally share our special news with you all!"
Darby closed the message with a tribute to her husband-to-be, saying: "@michaelcorradojackson you have made my life complete in every single way and I couldn't wish for a better Partner to build my life with and start our own family together."
