Sean Lowe Jokes to Catherine’s Baby Bump: ‘Come Out and Get a Job Already!’

01/28/2016 at 01:00 PM ET

The future addition to the Lowe family has some work to do!

On Wednesday, former Bachelor Sean Lowe took to Instagram to give wife Catherine‘s belly some love — and joke he’s counting down the days until their first child’s arrival.

“I wish this freeloader would come out and get a job already,” Lowe, 32, captioned the bump shot.

And Giudici Lowe, 29, is getting in on the Instagram fun, too. On Monday, the mom-to-be marveled at the sudden appearance of her baby belly, which she showed off in a striped tunic top and black leggings.

“Dang. Where’d you come from?” she wrote alongside the mirror selfie on Instagram.

The couple — who celebrated their second wedding anniversary Tuesday — announced in December via social media that they are expecting their first child.

And although the dad-to-be is “secretly rooting for a boy,” Lowe says he will be equally thrilled to welcome a daughter.

“I know that if we have a girl, she will have me wrapped around her little finger from day one,” he wrote on his blog.

This guys jokes never translate well. He always ends up sounding like a jerk.

I agree. I feel for her. He’s so controlling. I cant imagine the rules he’ll have for her with a child. Stand strong Catherine or you’re doomed.
