"Bachelor" couple Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici have some big (little) news!

The couple already beat the odds on the reality dating show as one of the few couples to go from finale-proposal to a real-life wedding.

And the stars of season 17 now have something even better than a rose or a ring to celebrate: Sean and Catherine are expecting a baby!

Sean shared the news on Instagram with a photo of him reaching out to touch Catherine's tummy along with the message, "It's happening! I'm going to be a dad!"

And it's real this time. Earlier this year, his bride made another baby announcement, but it turned out to be an April Fools' joke.

"17 weeks," she wrote in the caption accompanying the prank pic.

But soon enough, she fessed up to fabricating the "burger" baby.

But now it's the real deal. Shortly after Sean posted his announcement, she shared a similar photo, simply saying, "Hey baby."

Congratulations to the couple!
