Bachelor Nation stars Carly Waddell and husband Evan Bass are going to have a girl.

Earlier this month, the couple announced exclusively to PEOPLE that they are expecting a child together.

“We are so happy to be expanding our family as we welcome Baby Bass in 2018,” the couple said at the time.

The duo, who met on the set of Bachelor in Paradise, tied the knot during an intimate ceremony officiated by the show’s host Chris Harrison in Vidanta Nuevo Vallarta resort near Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, in June.

“We had a dream wedding on Saturday. It was truly the perfect day with friends and family in Mexico,” the newlyweds said in an exclusive joint statement to PEOPLE at the time.

Evan’s children delivered heartfelt and hysterical speeches that had everyone laughing and crying simultaneously. The love from Bachelor Nation has been overwhelming and we are so grateful to all who helped make this day amazing.”

From the start, the unlikely duo was immediately drawn to each other. By the end of their journey on the ABC reality show, Bass found himself popping the question to the woman of his dreams.

“Everything happens for a reason,” Waddell, 31, previously told PEOPLE. “It’s been a long journey for me in Bachelor Nation, but I would do it a thousand times again. Because the next part is going to be bliss.”

It’s a match made in deep space!

Adam Nimoy, television director and son of the iconic Leonard Nimoy, is engaged to Star Trek: Deep Space Nine alum Terry Farrell — news that is sure to delight Star Trek fans around the world.

Film critic and fellow Trekkie Scott Mantz first reported the couple’s updated relationship status in a tweet on Friday.

“RT BREAKING NEWS!! How’s THIS for #StarTrek ROYALTY?? TERRY FARRELL & ADAM NIMOY are ENGAGED!! May their love & union LLAP!!,” Mantz tweeted along with a heart and Vulcan salute emoji.

When a Twitter user responded with the question, “Serious? Not fake news? Baby will be 1/16 Vulcan,” the 53-year-old actress confirmed the engagement when she wrote, “Lol nope Not Fake news!”

“It’s for real,” she replied to another fan’s post.

The star of the former 90’s spinoff program has a son from a previous marriage, and Nimoy, 60, has a son and daughter with his ex-wife, E! News reported.

Adam Nimoy made headlines in 2016 when he revealed that he was working on a documentary to memorialize his father Leonard  — whose portrayal of the logical but lovable half-human, half-Vulcan Mr. Spock captured hearts around the world starting in the late 1960s.

“When I originally approached my dad about making the documentary it was just going to be Spock-centric all the way, from beginning to end,” Adam Nimoy told PEOPLE in July of 2016. “It was really supposed to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Star Trek coming up in September.”

The father-son duo began work on what would become For the Love of Spock in Sept. 2014, but just a few months later Leonard passed away on February 27, 2015 at the age of 83 after a long battle with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

“After my dad died there was such an outpouring of emotion,” he says. “Not only for Spock but the loss of Leonard Nimoy the artist and renaissance man. It became clear when I decided to continue on with the project that it had to include my dad’s life as well.”

A month after creating  a Kickstarter to raise funds for the documentary the project met and surpassed its $600,000 goal by more than $60,000, Variety reported.

It was date night for Jessica Alba and her husband Cash Warren on Friday, as the two expecting parents stepped out for dinner at Hollywood’s Highlight Room.

The 36-year-old actress showed off her baby bump in a sleek black dress — covering up for the cool night in an long olive jacket. She accessorize the look with silver jewelry, a black purse, and Dalmatian-patterned heels.

Warren, 38, wore a black V-neck T-shirt, black jacket, jeans, and orange-trimmed black shoes.

The happy couple were all smiles as they headed out for the evening, walking hand-in-hand.

In July, Alba announced she was pregnant with baby No. 3 in an Instagram boomerang alongside daughters Haven Garner, 5, and Honor Marie, 9 — writing “officially outnumbered.”

“Cuddling!” she told PEOPLE at the launch of The Honest Company’s The GREAT Adventure Collection on Aug. 5, when asked what she’s looking forward to most. “Cuddling babies are the best.”

As much as she may remember the joy of snuggles, Alba revealed on the Tonight Show that she has forgotten all the late nights, dirty diapers and everything else that comes along with a newborn.

“I have amnesia about having a baby, which is why I think I allowed this to happen,” Alba told late-night host Jimmy Fallon. “I don’t remember any of it!”

And though she is not disclosing the sex of her baby, the she and Warren are still figuring out their baby-to-be’s name.

“So my husband’s name is Cash, that’s his actual real name, so our kids had to have unusual names,” she explained, adding, “That were also H, double syllable, has to be a word, can’t be too weird,” she said, stressing: “It has to be a H!”
