So much to celebrate! Married at First Sight alum Sam Role is engaged and expecting her first child with fiancé Chris Wise.

The 33-year-old reality TV personality announced her happy news in an Instagram post on Tuesday, March 20, just a little over two months after revealing that she and Wise, 31, were engaged.

“This just in… I ate a watermelon seed and then this happened… lol jk #CantWaitToBeAMom,” Role captioned the pic which shows her beau holding onto her growing baby bump.

Role announced their engagement on Instagram in January. “I flew to #ATL this weekend to celebrate @chrisw1687 birthday,” she wrote alongside a photo of her gazing at her diamond ring in awe as Wise stood next to her, smiling. “Not only did I get to spend time with him, but HE PROPOSED! #ISaidYes❤ #SoonToBeMrsWise #2018Engagement”

Meanwhile, Role’s ex-husband, Neil Bowlus — whom she married and divorced on season 3 of the dating show — was quick to congratulate the expectant mother, proving there are no hard feelings.

“Congratulations @Sam_MAFS. Super excited for you and the family!! You will be a great momma,” he tweeted following her announcement. “If it’s a boy I am formally submitting the name Corneilius (Neil for short) for consideration 😬 #MarriedAtFirstSight #MAFS #MAFSFamily”

Role later responded with the crying-laughing emoji, “Corneilius Wise sounds strong! @Neil_MAFS Thank you for the best wishes! #AlwaysBeMyHomie.”

The former couple wed in 2015 after meeting on the show but Bowlus ultimately chose divorce during the season 3 Decision Day episode in 2016.
