Bachelor In Paradise poster couple Mary Viturino and Conor Canning have announced they're expecting a child together.
The happy news was shared via their respective Instagram pages on Saturday, alongside a touching family photo of Conor cradling Mary's growing bump with big sister-in-training and Mary's daughter from a previous relationship, Chanel, beaming at the camera.
"I know I haven't been active lately, so I'm happy to finally be able to share the news that me and @conorjcanning are having a baby next year #baby," the BIP beauty captioned her announcement post.
"We can't wait for the newest member of our little family. @maryviturino18 and I are over the moon and Chanel is very excited to be a big sister ❤️#baby #hobart," Conor added.
This marks the Aussie Bachelor In Paradise baby to be born - an honour Mary and Conor are no doubt very proud of.

Their pregnancy announcement was swiftly met with a flurry of congratulatory messages from their BIP co-stars.
"So bloody happy for you two!! ❤️❤️❤️ @maryviturino18 @conorjcannin," Glenn Smith said.
"AHHHHHHH!!!! SO BLOODY HAPPY FOR YOU GUYS!" Alisha Aitken Radburn added.
"IM SO HAPPY 😭😭," Jessica Brody proclaimed.
"Heart is so happy! Congratulations you beautiful people! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️," Renee Barrett agreed.
Mary and Conor's love story was a welcome surprise on this year's season of BIP with the adorable duo capturing hearts around the nation.
Conor entered the island as a "cleanskin", having no previous ties to the Bachelor franchise and quickly caught Mary's eye.
After the whirlwind finale of the show, where the couple told one another they had fallen in love, Mary revealed she and her six-year-old daughter had relocated to Tasmania and were living with Conor.

The couple have previously hinted they'd love to have children together.
"I think I've always wanted a big family, so we're both keen on the idea. We'll have to see what happens down the track," Conor told Now To Love in August.
While Mary vouched that Conor was a "natural" around Chanel and would make a great father.
"He is a natural. They spend lots of time together. Conor sometimes does the drop off at school for me and yeah, they just get along very very well," the chef explained.
A huge congrats on your BIP baby.
