First Steps Baby Expo



About First Steps Baby Expo

After 10 years of a live, in-person expo, we are going virtual for 2020! Our baby expo will offer entertainment, knowledge, prizes and more. Put on your comfy pants and put your feet up! Enjoy your day from the comfort and safety of your home and just like the in-person expos you’ll have the chance to connect with vendors who have products and services you wish to know more about or purchase, as well as gain education through virtual seminars.



The Virtual First Steps Baby Expo is excited to announce celebrity guest, Carly Waddell! You might know Carly from her time on reality TV Series The Bachelor and Bachelor in Paradise and her award winning podcast Mommies Tell All inspired by her husband Evan Bass and their two children. Mom’s you don’t want to miss the honest, hilarious and over all truth about freeing yourself from mom guilt!


Carly Waddell is best known for her time on reality TV series The Bachelor and Bachelor in Paradise where she met her husband Evan Bass. She has two biological children, Bella and Charlie and three step children Nathan, Liam, and Ensley, which inspire her weekly on her award winning podcast Mommies Tell All, with fellow bachelor alum Jade Roper Tolbert! Besides  just the podcast, Carly has traveled the world performing and singing in theatrical productions as well as on Royal Caribbean and Norwegian cruise lines. Her first iTunes single “So I Do”  was performed on ABC’s airing of Jade and Tanners  wedding special, and three years later she released her chart topping lullaby album “Dream Train” which was inspired for her daughters 1st birthday. Carly is currently working on her newly launched YouTube  channel, inspiring her 1 million followers on Instagram, as well as new music in Nashville, Tennessee!
