Bringing Up Bates star Tori Bates is going to be a mom!

The 22-year-old reality TV star announced she is expecting her first child with husband Bobby Smith, Us Weekly reported.

"We're having a baby! We are thrilled that God has blessed us with this amazing privilege, and we cannot wait to meet our precious little gift from Him," Tori told Us.

"We're on the edge of our seats to see whether it's a boy or a girl!"

The baby is due in Fall 2018.

Tori is thrilled to be pregnant, but according to a family insider, she has unfortunately experienced some "severe" morning sickness.

Tori and Bobby met in 2015 through a mutual friend and officially began courting in November 2016.

The parents-to-be got engaged in September of that year in North Carolina. For the sweet proposal, Bobby had decorated a scenic overlook called Wiseman's View with rose petals and candles.

Tori and Bobby went on to tie the knot in December 2017 at the Calvary Baptist Church in Knoxville, TN. The pair exchanged vows in front of 700 guests, including the entire Duggar clan, except for Jinger Duggar.

Tori and Bobby filmed their wedding for an episode of the Bates family's UPtv reality series that aired late last month.

The bride was nervous and couldn't help but giggle as she exchanged vows with her then-fiance, which were officiated by her father, Gil Bates.

"It was embarrassing. And then I was just like, 'I can't believe this is happening on my wedding day! Of course it would,'" Tori recalled on the show, according to the magazine.

"The whole wedding, I was just honestly trying to make everything so perfect and do everything so perfect and, you know, when I started laughing, it's just not me to be perfect."
