In another post, the 32-year-old jewellery designer opened up about her changing body and thanked fans for the deluge of love following their pregnancy announcement.

"My goals these days revolve less around abs and more around sunshine and pants with an elasticised waist band. To everyone who messaged yesterday thank you for all the love and support," Laura, who will welcome her first child in June next year, wrote.

Adding: "We are going to shower this little peanut in so much love, and just the right of amount of dysfunction to ensure it's funny. ❤️"

On Saturday, Laura and Matty, who found love on the 2017 season of The Bachelor, pretty much broke the internet when they revealed they were 15 weeks pregnant.

"WE ARE HAVING A BABY🎉 👶🏻 !!!!Old mate @matthewdavidjohnson and I are beyond excited to finally be able to share that I'm cooking an orange sized baby Johnson-Byrne. Happy doesn't even come close ❤️ (Have a look at the last picture - it's little hand is waving at everyone 😂😍 my heart)," Laura wrote.

Meanwhile Matty also shared three images of the pair to his Instagram along with the caption: "I'm so bad at keeping secrets so I'm EXTREMELY excited to let everyone know, we are having a little baby! @ladyandacat I love you more than words can describe and I can't wait to start our family together. WE ARE GOING TO BE PARENTS!!"

And it definitely wasn't an easy road for the pair, who revealed to the Daily Telegraph they had experienced a devastating miscarriage earlier this year.

In June, Laura miscarried at seven weeks.

"We'd heard so many stories about how it had been so difficult for some people and obviously we thought it was going to be difficult for me because of what had already happened," she told The Telegraph.

"It is not something that people really talk about but actually one in four pregnancies end that way, you just don't hear about it."

But just weeks after the devastating miscarriage, Laura fell pregnant again.

While the pair have yet to find out the sex of their baby, Matty's found it hard to refrain his excitement, telling the Telegraph he was "very impatient" to find out if it would be a boy or a girl.

Over the last few weeks, the Bachelor couple have faced pregnancy rumours after Laura stepped out at a red carpet event with what people thought could be a hint of a baby bump.

The speculation turned out to be bang on the money and we couldn't be happier for them.

It's going to be one seriously cute Bachie baby!
