Bachelor Nation is getting bigger! Former Bachelor Sean Lowe and wife Catherine Giudici are expecting baby No. 2 — and the couple shared the exciting news on Instagram.

Holding her son Samuel in her lap, the pregnant beauty asked the 16-month-old, “Samuel, what’s this?” while pointing to her tiny baby bump. Samuel excitedly answered, “Baba,” before giving his mom a sweet kiss. Catherine, 31, went on to caption the moment, “Baba numba two.”

As expected, fans of the couple, including some Bachelor alums, could not contain their excitement over the baby news. “YES YES YES! So happy for you guys,” one follower wrote before former Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe commented with a bunch of hands up emojis. Sean, 33, also posted a sweet video on his social media, writing, “It’s happening.”

Earlier this month, Life & Style spoke with Sean and Catherine, who tied the knot in 2014 after meeting on Season 17 of the reality dating competition, and they revealed they were planning on having another baby very soon. “We want a big family. I think that Samuel is such a good boy and we’ve really been focused on him and really getting back to being comfortable in this stage because it took a long time,” she said. “The first couple of months were really hard with Samuel and now we have a really good groove, so it’s kind of hard to disrupt that because it’s a rough road. Pregnancy and having the baby — it’s a big commitment.”

The couple even discussed adopting! “We talk about it,” Sean added. “We haven’t taken the step to actually do our research and reach out to social workers and things like that, but I think it’s in the future.”

Congrats to the happy couple! Now, we’ll just have to wait until their gender reveal!
