July 26 (UPI) -- Bachelor alum Raven Gates is going to be a mom.

The 30-year-old television personality is expecting her first child with her husband and former Bachelor in Paradise co-star, Adam Gottschalk.


Gates shared the news Sunday on Instagram alongside a slideshow of photos of herself and Gottschalk showing off a strip of sonograms.

"OVER THE MOON EXCITED TO SHARE THE NEWS! Our Honeymoon baby will be here in January!" Gates captioned the post. "I've loved you before you were in my womb!"

Gottschalk confirmed the news in a post on his own account.

"Beyond excited to announce our little baby into this world. Your Mom has already started to like Daddy's food groups and I think that's a great start. Cheers to fatherhood," he wrote. "Coming soon... January 2022."
