From Bachelor‘s biggest names like Tim Robards and Anna Heinrich, and Matty J and Laura Byrne, to contestants you may have forgotten about, we’ve taken a look at the show’s stars who have become parents since finding fame.

Faith Williams – Season 4

While Faith did not find love during her time on The Bachelor with Rachie Strahan but that doesn’t mean she has been unsuccessful outside of the dating series.

The blonde beauty welcomed her daughter, Evie Mae Cornish on November 22, 2023, with her partner James Cornish.

“Our baby girl is finally here and we couldn’t be more in love,” Faith wrote on Instagram.

The pair took to Instagram in June to reveal she was 15 weeks through her pregnancy.

Tim Robards and Anna Heinrich – Season 1

There’s nothing more exciting than a Bachelor baby. So, when OG couple, Tim Robards and Anna Heinrich announced they were expecting their first child seven years after they first met on The Bachelor, fans were over the moon.

The couple, who tied the knot in Italy in 2018, announced they’d welcomed their beautiful daughter Elle on November 14, 2020.

Anna was candid about her labour, saying Elle’s umbilical cord became wrapped around her neck during birth.

“I think going into delivery you can definitely have a birth plan, but you’ve also got to be open to things going wrong or not going the way you expected,” she told WHO in 2021.

However, the adjustment was tough for Anna. “There are definitely days where I’ve cried because I’ve just been exhausted, or I’ve sat down in the shower and I just want to sleep,” she admitted.

Anna and Tim, who regularly share updates on Elle’s exciting milestones and sweet moments, have long been candid about wanting to add to their family.

“We have always wanted more than one. I’ve grown up with two sisters, Tim’s got a brother and a sister, and I’ve always loved having siblings. So, hopefully one day in the future we can give Elle a brother or a sister,” Anna said.

Matty J and Laura Byrne – Season 5

Matty J and Laura Byrne are one of Australia’s favourite reality TV couples since they fell in love on season five of The Bachelor in 2017.

In 2019, the couple welcomed their first daughter, Marlie-Mae, after becoming engaged on their babymoon two months prior. Then in February 2021, the proud parents doubled their love when Laura gave birth to their second daughter, Lola.

“It isn’t always pretty, and we don’t always nail it, but it’s worth it,” Laura candidly said in 2021.

The couple have always been open and honest with their fans about their struggles on the road to parenthood.

Laura suffered two heartbreaking miscarriages; one in 2018 when she was 10 weeks pregnant, and another before she became pregnant with Lola.

“It’s not something I’ve really spoken about, not something that I’ve talked to many people about, but I feel very, very passionately that miscarriage is a conversation that needs to be had in an open forum,” she said at the time.

Sam and Snezana Wood – Season 3

When Sam Wood waited outside the Bachelor mansion for his dream woman in 2015, he had no idea of the bright future ahead.

The personal trainer found love with single mum Snezana Markoski and soon after the romantic finale, Sam, Snez and Snez’s daughter Eve (who is now 16) became a family of three.

Since then, Sam and Snez have not only made things official by tying the knot in a lavish Byron Bay wedding, but they’ve also welcomed three new adorable additions to their family.

Willow Wendy Wood became Australia’s first Bachie baby when she was born in 2017 and then two years later, little Charlie Lane joined the clan. In May 2022, Snezana gave birth to a fourth little girl; Harper Jones Wood.

Sam revealed Harper arrived one month early, leaving Snez and their newborn unwell and stuck in hospital.

“Snez became sick. Really sick and before we knew it Harper was off to the special care unit and Mum was into ICU. Of course in true Snez Mum fashion her only thoughts were for her little baby and it was breaking her heart that she couldn’t hold her,” he said.

“After finding an infection that both Snez and Harper had picked up and some incredible care from the nurses and doctors they were reunited and both doing well.”

Tara Pavlovic may have shot to fame as the fun-loving nanny who appeared on Matty J’s season of The Bachelor, but these days, her most important role is being a mum.

Tara and her husband Nick Shepherdson welcomed their first child, a son named Paddy, into the world in May 2021. The 32-year-old has remained candid on the struggles of motherhood.

“I feel like there aren’t enough hours in the day and I have this to-do list in my brain and it’s never complete and everyday I spend chasing my tail,” she said in 2021. “I struggle to turn my brain off and just zone out when I have things I need to do. It’s something I’m working on.”

In March 2022, Tara took to Instagram to announce she and Nick are expecting their second child, a little girl due in September.

“Little MISS Shep, due September 2022. Paddy has no idea what is going on but I’m sure he will love having a new friend to play with 🥰. @shepaa and I are super excited (& nervous 😳) and can’t wait to meet our little girl 💕” she shared.
