There's a Bachelor baby on the way!

Two years after saying "I do" in a lavish televised wedding, Bachelor couple Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney are expecting their first child together.

Due in March, the family's new addition will join big brother Ty, 7, Mesnick's son from a previous marriage.

"We could not be more excited about our little addition and Ty is beyond thrilled to be a big brother!" the couple tell Us Weekly. "We have been so lucky throughout our lives, but this blessing really does complete us in a way we never knew. Life is changing for us in a really great way!"

The couple married in front of 250 family members and friends -- and ABC cameras -- in February 2010, shortly after Mesnick famously dumped Bachelor fiancee Melissa Rycroft on national TV in order to date Malaney.

He proposed during a vacation in New Zealand where they fell in love during an overnight Bachelor date. After presenting Malaney with a bouquet of wildflowers, Mesnick snuck the engagement ring -- a 1.2-plus carat, antique cushion-cut stone with small diamonds along the platinum band -- into the bottom of her champagne glass.

"He just looked at me and said, 'will you marry me?'" Malaney recounted. "A rush of happiness hit me. It was perfect."

The family resides in Mesnick's native Seattle.
