Bachelor couple Matty J and Laura Byrne are the latest couple from the reality TV franchise to fall pregnant – and the adorable parents-to-be are excitedly sharing their pregnancy journey with their followers along the way.
The genetically-blessed pair announced their newest addition just before Christmas last year in a very cute beach photoshoot.
Now, Laura is already halfway through her pregnancy and is attending all of her scheduled medical appointments, including the much-anticipated 20-week scan.
In a series of videos shared on Instagram, Matty J took his followers inside the doctor's office as Laura's cute bump was scanned.
"Today is a pretty exciting day because it's 20 weeks and we're having a little scan to check on this guy or girl to make sure everything is as it should be," Matty J said.
When the ultrasound screen showed the little bub cooking in Laura's womb, 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?!"
Matty is clearly more in love with Laura than ever, posting a touching tribute to his partner.
"She is doing an incredible job at cooking up this little peanut (now the size of a banana)," he wrote on Instagram.

The happy baby news is especially exciting for the couple, because falling pregnant was not an easy task.
They revealed to The Daily Telegraph they had experienced a devastating miscarriage earlier this year. In June, Laura miscarried at seven weeks.
"We'd heard so many stories about how it had been so difficult for some people and obviously we thought it was going to be difficult for me because of what had already happened," Laura told The Telegraph.
"It is not something that people really talk about but actually one in four pregnancies end that way, you just don't hear about it."
But just weeks after the heartbreaking miscarriage, Laura fell pregnant again.

They shared the news in a series of sweet images posted to their Instagram accounts. Laura and Matty are pictured on the beach with a scan of their unborn baby, and they literally couldn't look any more excited.
Laura wrote: "WE ARE HAVING A BABY🎉 👶🏻 !!!!Old mate @matthewdavidjohnson and I are beyond excited to finally be able to share that I'm cooking an orange sized baby Johnson-Byrne."
She continued: "Happy doesn't even come close ❤️ (Have a look at the last picture - it's little hand is waving at everyone 😂😍 my heart)"
The cute couple have been together for 18 months since meeting on The Bachelor in 2017, and it's been clear from the beginning just how in love they are.
