Farmer Sam Reitano from last year's season of Farmer Wants A Wife has officially found what he was searching for – a wife!
The country bloke, who rose to fame on the 202 reality series, took to Instagram to announce he married fiancée and baby mama Katelen Cunningham on March 31st.

"31st of March 2021," he began.
"I married the most beautiful girl in the world that I now call my wife ❤️
"I am so grateful to have my amazing family there by my side, now it's till the next 4 months our beautiful baby girl will be born. What a incredible year it is so far 😊 farmer Sam found a wife."
The former reality star's post was accompanied by a slew of happy snaps from their big day, which showed Katelen's son acting as a page boy.

Farmer Sam met his now wife Katelen, a Townsville-based mother-of-one, after last year's dramatic season finale.
In a surprising Farmer Wants A Wife finale twist, fans were delighted to learn Farmer Sam had found love after having his heart broken on the show and leaving early due to the tragic passing of his grandfather.
Bringing his new love Kirsten on the show, Sam told host Natalie Gruzlewski she was "the best thing that's come into my life."
His love story took ANOTHER twist when it was discovered Sam had since become engaged to a different woman – Katelen.

The farmer teased a big announcement surrounding the show's reunion episode, which had been filmed months in advance.
"I know I told everyone that I was going to announce some thing BIG and well the media beat me too it!" Sam began in an Instagram post.
"I would like to say that Katelen is my fiancée! I am over the moon about her."

The Queensland-based fruit farmer put meeting Katelen down to fate.
"[I] don't know if it was my grandfather saving me for that someone special or maybe it was just good luck. Whatever it was I've never been so grateful and so happy to have her in my life," he explained.
The couple also announced their pregnancy in December last year before revealing the baby's gender just last month with a surprise confetti cannon full of PINK glitter.
Sam captioned the post, "Myself and Katelen would like to say we found out today, we are expecting a baby GIRL in August!
"We are very excited and can not wait!"
