Bianca didn't get the man's number after a one-night stand. Then she discovered she was pregnant.

This story had a rocky start. Now, we’re happy to report it has a happy ending.

Perth woman Bianca Fazey hooked up with a guy called Jeremy last April.

The pair met at a bar called ‘Harlem Wednesdays,’ spent the night together at the Rydges hotel and chose not to stay in touch, thinking they’d have no need to see each other again.

Nothing so unusual so far, right?

Except that Fazey subsequently discovered she was pregnant and decided to have the baby.

The Jurien-based woman had been diagnosed in 2011 with polycystic ovarian syndrome and told by doctors she would be unlikely to have kids naturally — so when she found out she was pregnant, she realised it may be her only chance to have a family.

The only problem? Without Jeremy’s details, she had no way to get in touch with him.

So in her attempts to track her unborn child’s father down to tell him about the pregnancy, the desperate young woman eventually resorted to a Gumtree ad.

“I have something that belongs to him,” Fazey wrote in the online ad, in which she also described Jeremy as a friend, “lovely gentleman” in his mid-20s.

Fazey said that at the time of posting the ad in December, she was at her “wits’ end”.

“I tried finding him for months and felt pressured by a friend who was adamant I don’t give up despite exhausting all avenues,” she told the Daily Mail last December.

The ad Bianca posted on Gumtree that lead to a barrage of criticism.

At first, Fazey received no response from Jeremy. Instead, she received a barrage of slut-shaming that led the young mum-to-be to take down the ad after two days.

In particular, LAD Bible shared her story online, prompting criticism that became particularly harsh.

“When it was shared on the LAD bible page a lot of people made single-minded comments aimed at me, no one mentioned the guy was equally a part of me getting pregnant,” Fazey told MailOnline.

The criticism that hurt most though, was those coming from other women and other mothers.

“I was more mad at the amount of women (mums included) saying I shouldn’t go through with it,” she said.

“I stupidly put it up thinking no one would even see it but who knows what will happen, maybe I will get lucky,” she added.

“Unfortunately all I got was lots of judgement and idiots messaging me telling me they would be the father or pretending to be Jeremy.”

Logan Fazey was born in January 2015: He is now a beautiful, chubby little boy with his mum’s dark eyes.

After his birth, Fazey continued to look for Jeremy — until the unbelievable happened.

The pair found each other, and they’re now together and in love.

“I am one lucky lady, to not only have found Logan’s Daddy but over a couple of months I have learnt he is an absolute gentleman, sweet, kind and already in love with his baby boy,” Fazey revealed in a Facebook post last month.

“I am so proud and pleased to have Jeremiah in our lives he will always be his little boys (sic) Hero…

“I ended up finding him because of the story. So it actually worked and I would have never found him otherwise!” she wrote.

Fazey added in a Facebook post earlier this week: “[E]ven though it wasn’t societies traditional method of starting a family I tell you I am so damn happy this is how my life has turned out.

“I have found a love that the negative people could only dream of, we are brilliant people, fantastic parents and Logan is still the most happy and content baby.”

We wish this little family all the very best.
