The Bachelor in Paradise stars confirmed the news to ET on Saturday, sharing how excited they both are about their “miracle baby.”
“We got the call at 1 [p.m.] from our doctor telling us it was a girl, and we both wept,” Bass tells ET. “We were shocked and elated! I didn’t think I could produce a girl! It feels like a miracle baby.”
Bass has three sons — Nathan, Liam and Ensley — from a previous relationship. The newlyweds announced they were expecting their first child together earlier this month.
Upon finding out that they were going to have a baby girl, the couple turned a party they had planned at their house into a gender reveal party. The celebration was originally a “wedding reception” after they had their televised ceremony on the new season of BIP.
Waddell also documented the experience on her Instagram Stories, saying in a clip, “So, you guys, we just talked to the doctor. We’re about to do a gender reveal!”
“It’s a girl,” shouts Bass in excitement.
“And we’re surprising the kids later and we’re having them bang open this piñata,” added the mother-to-be.
She also posted a sweet pic on Instagram with Bass’ sons. “This is our professional Gender Reveal photo! 😂 IT’S A GIRL!!!! I’m not the only girl anymore! Woo Hoo!!!! 👛👙👗🐷.”
Other BIP stars at the party included close friends Wells Adams and Derek Peth.
Earlier this week, the couple chatted with ET about their recent wedding and “surprise” baby on the way.
“It was a great surprise, it’s a great little miracle,” Waddell shared. “We took a pregnancy test in Mexico, and we saw the thing [in Spanish] and were like, ‘What does that even say?’ So we googled it!”
