Reality star and actress Amanda Stanton is growing her family! The Bachelor alum has announced she is pregnant with her third baby, which will be her first baby with her husband Michael Fogel. “We have some catching up to do!”

To announce their news, Amanda and Michael shared a joint Instagram post with two images of the couple, both featuring Amanda exposing her growing baby bump with her jeans undone while Michael held her from behind. They revealed that their first baby together is due in January 2024. In the caption, Amanda wrote, “I have been dreaming of this day for so long & I am so excited to finally share the news with you all!! The last few months have truly been everything I have dreamt of and more and I’m finding myself constantly trying to just slow down & soak up every second!”

The Bachelor in Paradise alum has two daughters from a previous relationship: Kingley, 10, and Charlie, 8. Amanda and Michael were friends for two years before taking their relationship to the next level. They got engaged in December 2021 and tied the knot last September at Kestrel Park in Santa Ynez, California. Amanda’s daughters had a significant role in the nuptials. “Kins is my maid of honor. She likes to help me with everything,” she shared with PEOPLE at the time. “And Charlie is the flower girl. They are both very happy with their positions.”

Adding Michael into her family was easy for the Kissing Strangers star, especially because they had been friends. “Everything was always so easy with him. It was so nice that we already knew each other. Now, my girls are really excited to officially call him their stepdad!”

Congratulations to Amanda and Michael on the news of their first baby together! We wish them lots of love as they prepare to grow their family.
