As if their fairy-tale romance wasn't enough already, Laura Byrne and Matty J's baby shower is officially what real dreams are made of.
From announcing her pregnancy to the world back in December 2018, to sharing some of her highest highs and her lowest lows of pregnancy with the world, the brunette who stole Bachelor Matty J's heart back in 2017 looks like she's on cloud nine - quite literally - after celebrating her baby shower on Sunday.

Coming together with their nearest and dearest at Sydney's rather fancy Watson's Bay Boutique Hotel, the Bachelor couple celebrated the impending arrival of their new addition, due in June.
With a plethora of delicious food, reality TV alum and enough balloons for several hundred birthday parties, there's no denying this Bachelor couple were well and truly celebrating in style.
Taking to her Instagram on Sunday, Laura shared some candid snaps from the lavish affair.

The mum-to-be looked stunning in a lilac dress that showed off her burgeoning baby bump, while Matty couldn't have looked more excited to be a dad - as became apparent when he broke into a dance worthy of any well-respecting dad.
Watch the moment in the video below:
Guests at the shower included Laura's fellow Bachelor pal Florence Alexandra, who shared a sweet tribute to the new mum-to-be on Instagram.
"Two years ago on @thebachelorau we promised that whatever would happen, we would stay friends. And look at you now, a little baby Johnson on the way!"
She then made a comical quip: "Can't believe you got knocked up by The Bachelor"😂😂.
"I'm so proud of you honey, and so happy for you and Matt. Can't wait to meet the little bub!" She finished.

Meanwhile, other friends of the loved-up couple also shared some sweet tributes, including Laura's sister Alisha.
"If you can't tell by the smile, I'm beyond excited for my gorgeous sister @ladyandacat and her man @matthewdavidjohnson on the impending arrival of my niece or nephew!" She wrote.
Meanwhile, another friend Chris Lewis shared a picture with the couple writing: "Not regular parents, they're cool parents."

And ever the confident, strong woman we know her to be, Laura showed she's still got it after seeing a troll comment from a follower who said: "That's what they call a bastard child".
In line with a number of people who jumped to Laura's defence, the brunette herself weighed in on the remark.
"This guy seems nice," she joked.

Laura has been refreshingly candid about her experience with pregnancy so far, with the 31-year-old regularly taking to Instagram to share updates.
In one such instance, Laura confessed that she required a two hour nap after returning to the gym.
She then said she had no intention of over-exerting herself of expecting too much from herself over the course of her pregnancy.
"The pressure doesn't come from Matt, it comes from myself. I went to the gym the other day and afterwards I had to have a two hour nap because I was exhausted," she told The Daily Telegraph.
Matty was also all for it - "If you want to eat a packet of biscuits, do it. I've never seen Laura look sexier," he said.

The pair also shared their 20-week scan on Instagram (delighting followers in the process), and it was clear just how excited they were to become parents.
When the ultrasound screen showed the baby, the couple were overwhelmed with excitement.
"It's our little baby! How cool is that?" Matty cried out, and Laura responded: "Isn't that crazy?!"
Bring on June!
