Yes, Aras Baskauskas didn't bring home the million on his second time out playing Survivor, but he's not lamenting the loss.
The L.A.-based singer-songwriter has much more important things going on in his life. "I'm going to be a dad," he tells PEOPLE exclusively. "My fiancée is 12 weeks pregnant! Obviously, that's a lot more important than winning Survivor."
It's been a good month for Baskauskas, who recently got engaged to Christy Petersen, his girlfriend of four years. Petersen is a model and clothing designer who runs the Dawn clothing line. "So far so good, if you don't count the morning sickness," says Baskauskas. "Momma and Baby are both healthy, and the little one is due in early June."
