Bachelor in Paradise couple Jade Roper and Tanner Tolbert are going to be parents.

Jade and Tanner announced they are expecting their first child together and the baby is due September 14, 2017, In Touch Weekly reported.

The pair met on Bachelor in Paradise 2 in Summer 2015, got engaged during the show's finale in Mexico, tied the knot in January 2016 for a televised special on ABC, and then hashed out their issues when they appeared on Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars late last year.

Tanner, 29, talked to In Touch about the moment he found out Jade was pregnant, after she took a home-pregnancy test.

"Jade cried a little bit," said the father-to-be. "I was just really excited."

The couple participated in a photo shoot in which Jade stood in front of a chalkboard drawing of a large baby bump and Tanner bent down to kiss her stomach.

Jade has reached Week 13 in her pregnancy, and she's already planning for the arrival of her little bundle of joy.

"If the pregnancy is low-risk, I would love to have an at-home water birth," revealed Jade, who once considered becoming a doula herself like her best friend Liz Sandoz from Nick Viall's season of The Bachelor. "But Tanner's a little concerned."

Jade and Tanner first opened up about their plans for starting a family in September 2016.

"We're building a house right now," Tanner told Us Weekly at the time of their Kansas City, MO, project. "It's going to be done in the spring, so we'll have to start filling it up after that... I bet you something, maybe next year."

"Yeah," Jade agreed, "some time next year, we'll start [trying for a baby]."

"He has a stipulation," Jade revealed with a laugh.

"So if they're both girls," Tanner explained, "I want to try for No. 3, for a little boy."

"Yeah, he wants one boy," the brunette beauty chimed in. "So, I'm hoping the first one's a boy."

"Get it out of the way!" Tanner interjected.

"And after that, the pressure's off," Jade confessed.

Jade, who first competed on Chris Soules' edition of The Bachelor, and Tanner, who initially vied for Kaitlyn Bristowe's heart on The Bachelorette, are the only couple still married from the first three seasons of Bachelor in Paradise.

Marcus Grodd and Lacy Faddoul split after meeting on Season 1 of Bachelor in Paradise and getting married on the second-season premiere.

Lace Morris and Grant Kemp, as well as Amanda Stanton and Josh Murray, called off their engagements after Season 3. As of two months ago, Season 3's happy couple Carly Waddell and fiance Evan Bass were planning a 2017 wedding.
