Former Bachelorette star Becky Miles has revealed she is expecting her first child with her partner James Bevin.

Though she didn’t find love during her stint on reality television, the 2020 reality star is now embarking on her “happy ending”, which she announced to the Daily Telegraph.

At 18 weeks pregnant, Becky told the publication, “I can’t wait to be a mum. I have always wanted to be a mother, and I guess I have had some close friends that have had some issues falling pregnant in the past.

“I was given some advice from a friend who said if I was dreaming of being a mum and getting pregnant, maybe I should just let nature do its thing. And so we did.”

The couple met 18 months ago on the dating app Hinge

The 31-year-old blonde beauty and her partner have been together for 18 months and met on the dating app Hinge.

During their interview, they told the Telegraph that they’re talking about marriage while preparing for their new life as parents.

“We couldn’t be happier,” gushed Becky. “It is such a lovely relationship.

“We have been dreaming of those next steps and talking about engagement and having a baby and now that has all become a reality. Although it seems a bit surreal still, it is really exciting, and I can’t wait to be a mum.”

When pressed about their wedding plans which will take place after the baby is born, Becky teased, “We will definitely get married at some point,” and James echoed her sentiments by sharing, “She is the one for sure.”

James also spoke to the publication and revealed he was meant to be deployed to the Middle East for his job as an air traffic controller, but when they found out Becky was pregnant, he stayed in Australia to help plan for the arrival of their dream baby.

“It all just feels very natural. Everything has just flowed really easily, which is nice. We can’t wait to tell our families. It has been a dream,” expressed the proud dad-to-be.

Because the couple’s relationship began during the pandemic, their families haven’t had the opportunity to meet, so they want to host their baby gender reveal party when they can get both sides together.

As for early pregnancy symptoms like morning sickness, Becky didn’t experience any except for a bit of bloating.

A few hours after the news broke, Becky took to her Instagram to officially share her announcement with her friend and fans.

Paired with a picture of James holding her in his arms, she wrote, “Soooo excited to finally announce that 2022 is the year I grow a human! Yes – we’re having a lil babe.”

She signed off her elated caption by sharing their due date, “Coming into this world June 2022 💛.”

A slew of former Bachelor contestants and friends shared their congratulations in her comment section.

Jessica Brody wrote, “Omg, amazing!! Congratulations,” Alisha Aitken-Radburn shared, “Omg!!!! Congratulations Becky!!!!,” and Tara Pavlovic commented, “Yay this is amazing!.”

The mum-to-be describes her relationship with James as “lovely”

It appears Becky teased her milestone news five days ago when she posted a series of photos from her day handing out letters to ask residents in Newcastle if they will sell their property to her as she begins her house hunt.

In her caption, she wrote about her 2022 goal to buy a home, and after sharing her plans to hunt with a satchel, walking buddy, and cute letters for potential sellers, she signed off with a telling clue.

“2022 I’m manifesting that perfect family home and putting things into action to make it happen. What are you manifesting and going to nail this 2022? / or even better, have any hot tips for us #firsthomebuyers trying to get into a tough market?👏🏼,” she wrote.

Her supportive sister, Elly Miles, commented, “Good job sis!! Love it!!!”

Well, it appears Becky is one step closer to that dream family life!
