“We’re about seven months,” she told Harrison. “I’m 29 weeks so that’s not really seven months.”
Salter, a Brooklyn-based hair stylist originally from Atlanta, Georgia, announced her engagement to her college sweetheart in September 2015 with a series of Instagram posts. In one photo, Ashley can be seen wearing her engagement ring while holding a bouquet of red roses.
She captioned the photo by saying, “12 is better than 1 #roses.”
According to a previous report by the Inquisitr, Ashley and Austin started dating again right after filming of the second season of the Bachelor in Paradise, in which she briefly dated Nick Peterson and Dan Cox, was over. They reunited and realized that they were meant to be together.

Ashley and Austin, who is the vice president of commercial real estate firm NAI Brannen Goddard, previously dated while they were both attending Auburn University. Although it took them several years to realize their love for one another, they are now happily expecting their first child and planning a fairy tell wedding.
During The Bachelor 20: A Celebration of Love special, several other Bachelor alums gave updates on their growing families.
“I can’t wait to be a dad,” Sean Lowe, who appeared on the 17th season, told Harrison, according to People Magazine. “I hope I can be half the dad my dad was to me. And Catherine will be an amazing mother. I honestly owe my life to The Bachelor. I wouldn’t be married to my wife, I wouldn’t be having this child right now if it weren’t for The Bachelor, and I’ll be forever grateful for that.”
Jason and Molly Malaney Mesnick, who met on Season 13 and married the next year, also spoke about their daughter, Riley, who is preparing to celebrate her second birthday (March 14).

“Riley has been the greatest addition to all of our lives,” Molly gushed. “I love Jason, but I really love Riley.”
Erica Rose, who competed during the third season of The Bachelor, is also engaged and expecting her first child with her fiance Galen Gentry.
“It’s a shotgun wedding — just like I always wanted!” Rose revealed, adding that she only dated her fiance for eight weeks before he popped the question. “My mom tells me that because I was on The Bachelor, I think love should happen really fast.”

Finally, Ashley and JP Rosenbaum, who fell for each other during Season 7 of The Bachelorette, tied the knot in 2012 and welcomed their first child, a son named Fordham Rhys Rosenbaum, on September 14, are hoping to add to their family soon.
“There’s talk, and there’s action of more babies,” Ashley admitted. “We’re talking… and we’re rockin’!”
