Well, isn't this exciting!

Bachie couple Matthew Johnson, 31, and Laura Byrne, 32, have revealed that they're expecting their first child together. 

As The Daily Mail has shared, the reality TV stars spoke with The Daily Telegraph, announcing the thrilling news that Byrne is 15 weeks along.

"I couldn't think of a better way to end the year," Johnson revealed during the interview.

Matty J has taken to Instagram to celebrate the news, writing:

"I’m so bad at keeping secrets so I’m EXTREMELY excited to let everyone know, we are having a little baby! @ladyandacat I love you more than words can describe and I can’t wait to start our family together. WE ARE GOING TO BE PARENTS!!"

The touching announcement follows the heartbreaking news that the couple suffered through a miscarriage earlier in the year. A point Byrne mentioned to The Daily Telegraph.

"We'd heard so many stories about how it had been so difficult for some people, and obviously we thought it was going to be difficult for me because of what had already happened," she said. 

The exciting update comes after weeks of speculation from fans and the media alike. 

We're just happy to hear the couple are doing so well and that we're set to get another, ridiculously cute, Bachie baby in the near future. 

Congrats, guys!
