Farmer Sam met Katelen, a Townsville-based mother-of-one, after 2020’s dramatic season finale.

In a surprising Farmer Wants A Wife finale twist, fans were delighted to learn Farmer Sam had found love after having his heart broken on the show and leaving early due to the tragic passing of his grandfather.

Bringing his new love Kirsten on the show, Sam told the then host Natalie Gruzlewski she was “the best thing that’s come into my life.”

His love story took ANOTHER twist when it was discovered Sam had since become engaged to a different woman – Katelen.

The Queensland-based fruit farmer put meeting Katelen down to fate.

“[I] don’t know if it was my grandfather saving me for that someone special or maybe it was just good luck. Whatever it was I’ve never been so grateful and so happy to have her in my life,” he explained.

The couple also announced their pregnancy in December last year before revealing the baby’s gender just last month with a surprise confetti cannon full of PINK glitter.

Sam captioned the post, “Myself and Katelen would like to say we found out today, we are expecting a baby GIRL in August!

“We are very excited and can not wait!”
