Looks like someone is going to be swapping roses and cocktails for nappies and prams.
Congratulations are in order for Bachelor in Paradise star Simone Ormesher who has welcomed her first child with her partner, Matt Thorne and took to Instagram to share her happy news.
The former reality star shared three pictures of her new arrival and even announced the sweet name that pays tribute to her grandmother.
"Welcome to the world Gracie-Mae Kathleen Thorne (Kathleen named after my Nanna)," she penned, adding, "More beautiful than we could have ever imagined ♥️"
Simone added: "After a few complications with baby's breathing she was admitted to NICU where she is being looked after but is doing so well and will hopefully be home with us in a couple of days, We could not have asked for a more stronger, amazing baby girl we are so in love."

Proud dad Matt also posted the news on his Instagram.
"Welcome Gracie Mae. Words can not describe the emotions and feelings I have for these two girls. After a big scare last night after birth where Gracie Mae is recovering well now to finally hold our baby girl is the most surreal and special feeling you will ever get. So Proud of you both and love you with everything I have," he captioned the same three photos.
Just a day before Gracie Mae's birth, Simone shared a final pregnancy update with a selfie from her hospital bed simply captioned: "She's on her way ♥️"

Simone, who found fame on Matty J's season of The Bachelor announced her pregnancy via Instagram in March.
The reality star shared a sweet picture of a little baby onesie, ultrasound photos and a blackboard that reads, 'There is a mini us due in October.'
"I can finally share with you all that we are expecting a little prince/princess 🤰 (apart from constantly feeling sick 24/7) We are so happy and full of love for this little person ❤️," Simone captioned the post.

Simone most recently appeared on our screens in 2018 for the first season of Bachelor in Paradise.
Apart from causing a bit of drama with Elora over Apollo Jackson, the blonde bombshell left the show to try and give a relationship with the hunky magician in the real world a red hot go. Unfortunately, though, it wasn't meant to be.
"I adore him! I have so much time for the guy. He's one of the nicest guys I've ever met," Simone told Now To Love last year when she left the show.
"It is unfortunate, he's someone that I could potentially see in my life but he is so busy and I'm not willing to move states. I just can't! I've got my job and I'm happy here but you never know what would happen in the future because we do get along."
