Is Misty pregnant on Homestead Rescue?

Misty might have changed since Homestead Rescue first started airing, but that does not necessarily mean that she is pregnant.

If you have ever tuned in to watch the Raney family swoop in to save amateur homesteaders who have no idea what they are doing, then you will know that Misty is a force to be reckoned with.

Whether it is building a one-of-a-kind chicken coop or chopping down giant trees, there is nothing homesteading related that Marty’s daughter cannot do.

Why a pregnancy is unlikely

But while Misty and the rest of the Raneys have been focusing on continuing their rescue-mission in the most recent season of Homestead Rescue – rumors have started swirling that Misty might be expecting.

And while news of a brand new Raney bundle of joy arriving soon may seem quite compelling, the reality is that the Raneys probably started filming for the current season of Homestead Rescue well before the season started airing in December 2023.

And if Misty really were pregnant, she (or one of the other members of her family) would likely have announced the news a long time ago.

This, in conjunction with the fact that Misty has been as hands on as ever during the show’s most recent season, is almost proof positive that she is not secretly hiding a new pregnancy.

Misty’s run on Homestead Rescue

Misty has been an integral part of the Homestead Rescue team since the very first season of the show premiered in 2016.

In fact, IMDb confirms that Misty has been featured in over 70 episodes throughout the show’s  11 total seasons, which have aired as follows:

Homestead Rescue season Initial air date
Season 1 June 17, 2016 to July 29, 2016
Season 2 June 14, 2017 to July 19, 2017
Season 3 November 15, 2017 to August 20, 2020
Season 4 January 2, 2019 to February 20, 2019
Season 5 June 12, 2019 to September 19, 2019
Season 6 January 2, 2020 to February 6, 2020
Season 7 August 20, 2020 to May 27, 2021
Season 8 June 17, 2021 to September 16, 2021
Season 9 October 17, 2021 to December 19, 2021
Season 10 March 7, 2023 to December 3, 2023
Season 11 December 10, 2023 to February 4, 2024

If you take into account that it has now been almost eight years since Homestead Rescue first premiered, then it is really no wonder that the show’s cast has changed so much from when they were starting out.

Misty is already a mom in real life

While there does not seem to be much truth behind the rumors that Misty might be expecting another child (or the rumors that she has a mental health condition that causes her to overeat, for that matter), some fans may not know that Misty actually already has a son.

Misty’s son, Gauge, was born in 2011. And though he has not made an official appearance as part of the Raney clan on Homestead Rescue, this recent photo, which was posted on Misty’s Instagram account, confirms that he is already the spitting image of his mother.

All about Misty’s family

Of course, we get to see Misty interacting with her father, Marty, and her brother, Matt, quite often on their slew of homesteading DIY-shows.

But there are other important members of her family who we do not  see on the show quite as often.

Misty has been married to Maciah Bilodeau since 2000. Maciah is a professional surfer who spends most of his time in Hawaii honing his craft.

However, a quick look back at this post on Misty’s Instagram page from 2021 reveals that Maciah (and presumably her son, Gauge) do often join her on the set of Homestead Rescue.

And while longtime fans of the show may feel like they know the Raney family inside and out, Misty also has two other siblings (besides Matt), who do not appear on the show.

What Misty has been up to behind the scenes

There is no denying that the Raneys are a busy bunch. And even when the filming of Homestead Rescue (and all of their other shows) has wrapped – Misty, Matt and Marty still have many other responsibilities.

All of the Raneys’ social media have been flooded with their various press appearances in the last couple of months, and it looks like they may already be working on a few new homestead builds for the next season of the show (though this will likely not be confirmed until Homestead Rescue is officially renewed for another season).

Either way, it seems like Misty has her hands full, even when the Homestead Rescue cameras stop rolling.
