Bachelor baby! Season 17 stars Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici are expecting their first child. On Tuesday, Dec. 8, the reality stars announced Giudici’s pregnancy via Instagram.

“It's happening! I'm going to be a dad!” Lowe, 32, captioned a photo of himself caressing his wife’s stomach.

Giudici, 29, also shared a pic taken by Julia Lauren Photography with her man, writing, “Hey baby :).”

The couple is currently participating in Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars. After The Bachelor, they also appeared on Celebrity Wife Swap.

Lowe and Giudici officially tied the knot in a televised wedding in January 2014, after getting engaged on The Bachelor in 2013. Giudici previously came under fire for posting a pregnancy prank on April Fool’s Day this year. Many followers called the prank “offensive” and “insensitive” to those struggling with fertility issues.

"On nearly every picture Catherine posts on Instagram, she gets flooded with comments from people who tell her she looks pregnant," Lowe explained at the time. "We understand that many of these people have no ill intent and are genuinely just hoping that we’re pregnant because they want to see us start our family, and we totally get that. But at the same time, it would be really tough for any woman to hear that 'she looks pregnant' on a daily basis when she’s not... So that was the genesis of yesterday’s post, it was playing off of the bombardment of pregnancy comments she reads every day and messing with those who post them."
