Chris and Desiree Hartsock Siegfried Expecting First Child

04/27/2016 at 11:30 AM ET

Another Bachelorette baby is on the way: Desiree Hartsock Siegfried is pregnant!

Hartsock Siegfried and her husband Chris Siegfried are expecting a baby in October, she announced Wednesday on Instagram.

“We have a bun in the oven and it’s not the warm pastry kind! We are beyond excited to share that we have a little one on the way!! A new chapter we are both looking forward to,” she wrote, sharing a photo of the excited parents-to-be pointing at her baby belly.

This will be the first child for the couple, both 30, who met on season 9 of The Bachelorette, when author and wedding-dress designer Hartsock Siegfried delivered the final rose to Siegfried.

The pair tied the knot last year in Palos Verdes, California, in a church ceremony complete with a reception at a library, a first-dance performance by singer Matt White, and a stunning vintage outfit change for the bride. Hartsock Siegfried’s book about planning a dream wedding on a budget, My Fairytale Wedding, is out May 17.

And while the new baby will make three humans for the Seattle, Washington-based Siegfried household, he or she will join another important member of the family: a long-haired dachshund puppy named Frankie, who recently made his social media debut on Hartsock’s Instagram account.

“Say hello to Frankie!” Hartsock Siegfried captioned the shot of her adorable new dog, who has his own Instagram account. “@frankieinseattle. The newest member of our family. #longhaireddachshund #dox #puppy // Any tips for a new puppy are much appreciated!”

Good for them! They are such a cute couple and it’s great to see them happy and expecting a baby.

Yay!! They are my favorite Bachelorette couple because they are low key and not on every reality show trying to extend their 15 minutes of fame. Their wedding wasn’t even televised which I’m sure was offered to them. They seem like the real deal. Desiree is beautiful and will be even more so throughout the pregnancy. So happy for them!!

So many bachelorette babies on the way…Emily, Des, Ali. there’s something in the water. I am so glad Desiree and her second choice Chris (remember Brooks Forester) worked out…congrats on the bun in the oven. I am sure the baby will be beautiful. @ guest ABC did not offer Desiree and Chris a televised wedding since the network felt ratings would be low.

Her baby won’t be as cute as her dog!
(I want to steal him from them)

They are adorable. I love that they found each other through this silly show and have remained mostly private. Certainly a way of life that others in their shoes should take note of. Congrats.

Love Des & Chris and I’m sure they’re going to be great parents. And how great for Des since one of her best friend’s, Renee Oteri, is also pregnant. I bet they’re planning playdates already.🙂
