'The giddy feelings in my stomach show there must be a few nerves, but I know Anna's going to be an absolutely amazing mother and I couldn't be more excited to start a family with her!'

They accompanied the joyous announcement with a cute maternity shoot. 

Tim and Anna fell in love on the inaugural season of The Bachelor Australia in 2013.

At the time, Tim was a hunky chiropractor working from his practice located in Bondi, while Anna had not long started her career as a defence attorney having graduated with degrees in law and gender studies.

Despite stiff competition from 24 other women vying for Tim's heart, Anna bowled him over with her 'beautiful looks, humility and self-assurance'.

The fitness fanatic presented Anna with the final rose in a moving ceremony filmed in Thailand, leaving runner-up Rochelle Emanuel-Smith broken hearted.

Tim, 37, echoed a similar sentiment on his own page, writing: 'We've been keeping busy in lockdown ... I can't wait to be a dad!!!

In an emotional exchange, Tim told Anna: 'It feels so good to finally be able to acknowledge what my heart is feeling, and you have my heart. I have fallen madly and deeply in love with you...

'I want to make you feel special every day. I can't wait to start the next part of our journey together.'

Anna, who had been open about never being a serious relationship, admitted on the show: 'This will be the first boyfriend, and the last'. 

While Anna was happy to have found 'the one', she later admitted to Daily Mail Australia that she felt people at work often looked 'down their noses' at her.
