Big Brother’s Jessica Graf Has Emergency C-section
In their latest podcast episode, Cody Nickson shared that Jessica Graf had to give birth via c-section. It happened on Sunday, March 17 which also fell on St. Patrick’s Day.

After the doctors prepped for the procedure, the bundle of joy arrived in about 15 minutes. It is a surprise to fans because the couple kept things very hush on social media. Jessica posted a story to her Instagram holding the baby all swaddled in a blanket for their Big Brother followers.
