Irena and Locky announced that they are expecting their first child together, in late September, six months on from their dream wedding.
The couple took to their Instagram accounts to share the happy news, much to the delight of their shared hundreds of thousands of fans.
"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 ♥️," Irena and Locky wrote.
"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," she added.
"In the midst of life's storms, may you find your rainbow soon 🌈. Due early 2024 🍼."

After declaring their love for one another in 2020 on season eight of The Bachelor Australia, the couple have shared several exciting relationship milestones with one another.
From countless adventures to settling down in Western Australia, adopting a fur baby, and getting engaged and then married - they've well and truly started a life together.
But not everything has been smooth sailing, the expecting parents opening up about the struggles they faced on their pregnancy journey earlier this year.
Speaking with our sister publication WHO in 2020, Irena shared the heartbreaking news that she and Locky had previously suffered from a miscarriage.
"But Locky was my absolute rock and having his support made me love him even more," she revealed candidly.
The couple then made public that they had experienced another miscarriage in July 2023.
"We've been trying to get pregnant and try to start a family and were absolutely over the moon when we found out we were pregnant last month," Irena revealed to 7Life.
“Unfortunately, a week later we suffered a miscarriage, and... it was emotional, hard and obviously heartbreaking."
“It all happened so quickly, which at the time was terrible, but I’m kind of glad it happened quickly,” she continued,
