'The biggest surprise of our lives.' Locky and Irena Gilbert have announced they're pregnant.

It's a happy day for fans of The Bachelor, as Locky and Irena Gilbert have announced they're pregnant. 

In a joint post on Instagram, the couple who met on the 2020 season of The Bachelor confirmed the exciting news. 

"2023 has been a year of surprises, and now Locky and I are thrilled to share the biggest surprise of our lives—anticipating a new member in our family," the post began. 

"As we revel in our happiness, we’re deeply sensitive to those who face the trials of infertility or have suffered loss. Having navigated the rollercoaster of emotions ourselves, we extend our hands and hearts to those on a similar path. In the midst of life’s storms, may you find your rainbow soon."


The news follows the couple opening up earlier this year about suffering their second miscarriage. 

"We’ve been trying to get pregnant and try to start our family and we were absolutely over the moon when we found out we were pregnant last month," Irena told 7Life in July.

"Unfortunately, a week later we suffered a miscarriage, and... it was emotional, hard and obviously heartbreaking."

In an appearance on The Morning Show, Irena spoke further about the tragedy. "Unfortunately Locky and I just suffered yet another miscarriage. We had one a few years ago quite early in our relationship and you know since we got married we've been trying to start a family and it's been slow and not going to plan but we are just like any other couple with their struggles," she shared. 

"It's obviously devastating. And yeah, we have been leaning on each other a lot and supporting each other, which has been really good. And I'm at the point now where I'm like, I'm hopeful that eventually we'll have our family." 

Locky and Irena met in 2020 on season eight of The Bachelor. The couple got engaged in June 2022 before getting hitched in March 2023 in a ceremony held in Melbourne. 

The Bachelor couple currently life together in Perth.
