Evan Bass and Carly Waddell met while participating on Bachelor in Paradise last summer, and their relationship is one of few Bachelor Nation romances that has survived the test of time.
Seriously, it’s great that there is news of a success story after all of the negative press the series has received of late what with the whole Corinne Olympios and Demario Jackson getting hot and heavy in the swimming pool.
We can’t forget that production was shut down on the back of the wild sex romp.
Evan and Carly returned to paradise earlier this year to get married, and their wedding was even televised. With marriage out of the way, the next big question was when to expect a child.
Thankfully, they are officially with child and have hit up Instagram to reveal the gender of their little bundle of joy.
Waddell was overjoyed with the gender, saying: “This is our professional Gender Reveal photo! IT’S A GIRL!!!! I’m not the only girl anymore! Woo Hoo!!!!”
Meanwhile, Evan chatted with E! News about the gender reveal, and how happy everyone it was a girl.
“We are absolutely out of our minds with happiness,” Bass told E! News.
“Our whole family was hoping for a girl, and it’s a dream come true. When we found out we both started crying our eyes out with tears of happiness.”
“We are already planning an all pink room. The boys freaked out.”
Evan even opened up about just how lucky he felt and the impulsive thing it made him do.
“Also, I was feeling extremely lucky, so I went out and bought a lottery ticket for the first time since I was 18. I didn’t win so I guess I’m not that lucky.”
Evan was definitely unlucky in love before he met Carly, so we’re glad their romance in paradise managed to remain solid when they returned to the United States of America.
It was just two weeks ago that they confirmed the pregnancy news.
“SECRET IS OUT GUYS!!!! Evan and I are SO EXCITED to announce we are HAVING A BABY!!!” Carly wrote on Instagram, adding: “What a beautiful, wonderful, wild year it has been and the adventure continues Feb 2018!”
Which milestone will come next for the couple? This romance is showing no signs of slowing down, and we’re totally on board with it.
