Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney from ABC’s the bachelor franchise, are expecting their first child together. Due in May, the baby will join Ty, 7, Mesnick's son from a previous marriage.

We could not be more excited about our little addition and Ty is beyond thrilled to be a big brother!" the couple told US Weekly. "We have been so lucky throughout our lives, but this blessing really does complete us in a way we never knew. Life is changing for us in a really great way!" Thirty-six year-old Jason Mesnick confirmed the report on Twitter saying, 'WAHOOOOOOOO!!! Molly is going to be a MOM and TY a BIG BROTHER!" The couple met on the 13th season of "The Bachelor." Molly was actually the runner-up to the winner Melissa Rycroft. Mesnick proposed to Rycroft but ended up breaking up later, saying he still had feelings for Molly. The two married in February 2010. "He just looked at me and said, 'will you marry me?'" Malaney recounted. "A rush of happiness hit me. It was perfect."

The Bachelor rarely throws up a successful pairing, let alone a couple that stay together after the first encounter. And normally, you can forget dating, so the news that they were getting married would have been a surprise for many. But all seems well with the couple, and they’ll have a little one to prove it come May.
