Bachelor Nation is getting a tiny new addition! Bachelor in Paradise couple Carly Waddell and Evan Bass are expecting a baby come 2018, People announced on Sunday. Congrats, you crazy kids!

“We are so happy to be expanding our family as we welcome Baby Bass in 2018,” the couple told People via a statement on Aug. 6.

They haven't yet said whether they're expecting a girl or a boy, but they have confirmed (more or less) when the teeniest Bachelor/ette will arrive. Waddell is due in February, according to E! News.

Their newest addition will be part of a fine tradition of Bachelor Nation babies.

Bachelorette Desiree Hartsock and her pick, Chris Sigfried, had their first baby in October 2016, and Bachelor Sean Lowe and his winner/wife, Catherine Giudice, had a son in July of that same year.

And those are only the two latest babies — Bachelor Nation is responsible for a surprising percentage of the Pre-K demographic.

On Twitter, Bass was already sharing his excitement.

“WE ARE SO EXCITED. (Im already super nervous about the day we tell the lil one how we met),” he wrote. Yeah, you and everyone else on Tinder, Evan.

No matter what they tell their future offspring, the way the couple actually met was on the third season of Bachelor in Paradise.

Bass proposed in the season finale. Unlike the other two couples finishing the season, Bass and Waddell stayed together, and tied the knot in June of this year. The pair got hitched in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, with the ceremony officiated by host Chris Harrison.

Their wedding was originally supposed to air as part of Season 4 of Bachelor in Paradise, but the season's misconduct investigation involving Corrine Olympios and DeMario Jackson derailed that. 

Though it's the pair's first child together, they already have some parenting experience.

Bass is the father of three boys from a previous relationship who live with him and Waddell. The kids, Nathan, Liam, and Ensley, spoke at the couple's wedding, per People.

And here comes one more. Mazel to the happy parents!
