Big Brother alums Nicole Franzel and Victor Arroyo has announced that they are expecting their first child together!

Nicole coyly wrote in her caption of the announcement post: “Nic + Vic = our lil’ side kick.” The fun picture featured the couple sitting on their bed surrounded by snacks like pizza, pickles, and candy while Nicole drank a Ginger Ale and Victor drank a beer. There was also a picture frame that featured a letter board with the message “Nic + Vic = our lil’ side kick July 2021.” On one side of the letter board was a picture of Nicole and Victor and on the other side was a sonogram picture of their little one.

Victor shared his own announcement photo to his page which featured him sitting at a desk in his house looking at sonogram pictures of his little one. In the caption, he mentioned that the sonogram pictures were from when Nicole was 7-weeks along but that the reality star is currently 11-weeks.

After posting her announcement photo, Nicole shared another image of her and Victor outdoors holding up a sonogram picture. She thanked her followers for all the love on her news and asked if anyone had questions they’d like the couple to answer on their podcast, Coco Caliente.

The couple, who competed on season 18 of Big Brother, got engaged two years ago on an episode of the reality competition series. Victor surprised Nicole with an on-air proposal. She thought she was entering the game to host a luxury competition. Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the couple has had to alter their wedding plans. In April, Nicole wrote, “Our wedding plans may be changing bc of COVID-19 (a lot is uncertain right now). We are just rolling with the punches. Suddenly having a small intimate wedding seems just as good to me.”

Congratulations to Nicole and Victor on growing their family! We wish them all the best as they prepare for their little one’s arrival.
