The Bachelor family is growing in more ways than one! Former Bachelor, and Bachelor in Paradise star, Ashley Salter, is officially a mom-to-be! The reality TV alum confirmed her recent pregnancy news with new fiancé, Austin Brannen, just months after celebrating her engagement (with some stunning engagement photos to boot). The mom-to-be used the power of social media to show the world her growing baby bump through a truly adorable photo.
The newly engaged Bachelor alum couldn't help but pair her beaming smile with her brand new baby bump after confirming her joyous pregnancy news, People confirms. The Bachelor in Paradise's other half took to Instagram to capture the first look of his fiancée's growing baby bump which perfectly displays the couple's matching smiles in front of a breathtaking Oceanside backdrop. That's going to be one beautiful baby!
The adorable couple, who confirmed that they are expecting a baby boy, announced their engagement early this fall, after Salter, one of the Bachelor's most colorful contestants, concluded her quest for love on the hit ABC show's 19th season with Bachelor Chris Soules.
"We are very happy and look forward to spending our lives together," the doting couple told People after confirming their milestone moment. Salter's other half reportedly popped the question over Labor Day Weekend after taking his then-girlfriend to a heliped at the top of the W hotel in Atlanta to witness a breathtaking view of the city. The dad-to-be topped off the epic proposal by handing his new fiancée a bundle of roses. Now that's a smooth move!
Salter took to Instagram to document her once-in-a-lifetime moment by posting a catalogue of snapshots that perfectly summed up the twosome's epic experience. One of the duo's most adorable photos shows the newly engaged couple walking hand-in-hand on what appears to be a helipad. Salter fittingly captioned the adorable photo, "Walking on sunshine."
