On Friday, the Bachelorette alum revealed she and husband Chris Siegfried are expecting aΒ son.

“We are so excited to share that we will be having a little baby BOY!” Hartsock Siegfried captioned a sweet Instagram post of her and Siegfried holding their dachshund and a baseball that reads “It’s a Boy.”

She continues, “Our hearts are so full of love for our little man already and we can’t thank you all enough for the extra love you’ve shared during this special time!”

The pair tied the knot last year in Palos Verdes, California, after meeting on season 9 of The Bachelorette, where Hartsock Siegfried delivered the final rose to Siegfried.

Their love has been a fairytale journey ever since.

In April, the couple announced they are expecting their first child in October.

“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!!” the mom-to-be wrote on Instagram.

Hartsock Siegfried has been sharing photos of her growing baby bump on social media, recently posting a sweet photo of the parents-to-be, with Siegfried’s arms around her waist.

“The best part about this new chapter in life is going through it all with the quirkiest, most thoughtful, and lovable man I know,” Hartsock Siegfried captioned the family photo. “We can’t wait to be parents to the precious lil soul growing inside me.”
