The post was quickly flooded with congratulatory messages from fellow Bachelor stars, including Locky Gilbert, Brooke Blurton and Jake Ellis.

"Wonderful news guys!!” Georgia Love wrote, followed by Angie Kent who said, “STOP IT! Im so incredibly happy for you both! What magical news! Lots of love to you and that growing little treasure”.
