Married at First Sight stars Jamie Otis and Doug Hehner have come a long way! After two years of marriage, the couple announced they are expecting their first child together during a Tuesday, July 5, appearance on Today.
“I am pregnant!” Otis exclaimed. “Four months today.”
The 30-year-old registered nurse, who wore a tight, cream-colored midi on the show, joked: “I feel like I’m trying to wear the tiniest dress because you can barely tell there’s a baby in there.”
The pair met for the first time on their wedding day on season 1 of Married at First Sight. She wasn’t initially attracted to him, but they went on to document the highs and lows of their relationship on Married at First Sight: The First Year.
"[Doug] had a prebaby bucket list," Otis said on Today. "He had these crazy, wild adventures he wanted to do before we got pregnant, which was really smart because we weren't ready to have a baby."
On the April 26 episode of the FYI hit series, both the Bachelor season 16 alum and Hehner, 35, had babies on the brain. “I can imagine it now, a little Douglas Hehner coming out with moles all over his face,” Hehner joked. “I got to admit — it did get me a little excited. It does make me wonder what your baby is going to look like.”
Hehner revealed on Today that he and Otis — who attended couples counseling — worked hard to get to a place where they were both ready for a child. “When you’re in the trenches and you make it out out together,” he said, "you become stronger as a couple.”
Married at First Sight premieres on FYI on July 26.
