The Bachelor fans have some celebrating to do, as Astrid Loch and Kevin Wendt just revealed exciting news. The two had to postpone their wedding due to the coronavirus pandemic, but they decided there was another major life change they weren't willing to further postpone. 

In a pair of Sunday Instagram posts, Astrid and Kevin took to Instagram to reveal that their family was expanding. The Bachelor in Paradise stars added a puppy last year, and now it's time for a baby.

Both Astrid and Kevin's posts showed them standing together while holding a series of ultrasound photos. 

"A dream come true," Astrid wrote. 

She explained that one of the first conversations that she and Kevin had was about wanting kids. She noted that she'd share further details later, but that the couple struggled with issues of infertility before becoming pregnant, adding "it's the toughest thing we've ever been through."

"When I think about Kev holding our little angel for the first time my heart flutters," Astrid gushed.

It Was A 'Long And Tough Road'

In Kevin's post, he told fans that it had been a difficult road to get to this point. Despite the rough journey, he was clearly thrilled to be able to share this pregnancy news. 

"Thank you @astridloch for giving me the one thing I've wanted most in my life," he wrote in his caption. 

Kevin also directed followers to the Instagram page set up where people can keep tabs on the family's expansion. 

"Happy 1st Mother's Day to my queen," Kevin gushed at the beginning of his caption.

The Pair Is 'So Excited' To Share The News

Kevin's announcement photo was similar to Astrid's, but it included the couple's puppy Ace. Both posts got flooded with comments and likes from Bachelor in Paradise fans as well as people from within the franchise. 

"Congratulations my friend. God bless you guys," The Bachelor host Chris Harrison commented

"My heart is so overwhelmingly happy for you! Can't believe it," wrote Kendall Long on Astrid's post. Fans will remember that Kendall was on the same season of Bachelor in Paradise as Astrid and Kevin.

Success Via IVF

Astrid and Kevin opened up to People about their exciting news. She's 12 weeks along, and they'd spent a year trying to get pregnant before pursuing fertility help. The couple tried both IUI and IVF and navigated an ectopic pregnancy.  

"We spent a lot of nights in tears" over how hard it all was, but they worked on being "future oriented" rather than let it bring them down. 

Astrid and Kevin rescheduled their wedding for November 2021. Their baby is set to come in November too, so it should be a fabulous year for the Bachelor in Paradise pair.
