‘The Bachelor’s Matty J And Laura Byrne Announce They Are Expecting Their Second baby

Congratulations to them both!

Congratulations are in order for The Bachelor‘s Matty J and Laura Byrne who have announced that they are expecting their second child!

The couple shared the happy news via Intagram, posting a sweet snap of themselves with their adorable one-year-old Marlie-Mae at the beach.

I recon [sic] we’ve kept this little beach ball under wraps for long enough….. Half way to number 2 👶🏻,” Laura wrote in the caption accompanying her post.

“A big shout out to @matthewdavidjohnson for his contribution 😂🤣.”

Not to be left out, Matty also shared an Instagram announcement of his own, adding a snap of his daughter pulling a surprised face and writing:

“Marlie-Mae learning shocked face couldn’t have been timed any better.. WE’RE HAVING A BABY!”

“Please brace yourself for twice the amount of dad jokes.”

Byrne, who welcomed their first child in June 2019, has spoken candidly about being pregnant with Marlie-Mae on numerous occasions, frequently sharing a number of the real and relatable moments that come with being an expectant, from the stretch marks to hormone-fuelled tears.

“I was one of those annoying peacocky pregnant ladies who said things like ‘pregnancy is bliss, it’s breezy easy so far’ and now I can’t touch my toes, or breathe, and every burp could very well be a surprise spew,” she shared in one Instagram post.

The all-star Bachelor couple announced their engagement back in April 2019. Their wedding was originally meant to go ahead this year, but was postponed after Laura gave birth to Marlie-Mae, and then a second time due to the pandemic.

In conversation with TV WEEK in April, Laura revealed that they are now looking to wed in 2021.

“We had originally thought that we would have our wedding this year, but juggling a baby and full-time work meant that we never got around to locking in a date and venue,” she said.

“Luckily our lack of plans and disorganisation meant that we didn’t have to cancel anything. We are now looking to 2021.”

Congratulations to them both!
