Congratulations are in order for not just one Waddell sibling, but two. News broke on Sunday that Bachelor in Paradise couple Carly Waddell and Evan Bass are expecting their first child together. But a quick look at Carly's Instagram page reveals her brother, Zak Waddell, is also expecting a baby with his wife. Fans may recognize Zak from Desiree Hartsock's season of The Bachelorette. This means the Bachelor Nation family is growing fast, and all the baby news is sure to leave fans grinning.

Although Zak made it to the final four during Hartsock's season, he didn't end up finding his happily ever after on the show. That came later when he met Elizabeth Coulon. The couple married in 2015. Now the couple is expecting their first child, a boy, according to Carly's Instagram post. Having their kids so close together in age is sure to be a wonderful experience for the Waddell siblings. Not only are they both Bachelor alums, they seem to be very close.

In 2015, Zak wrote on his blog, "Carly is the best sister you could ever ask for." He's also been very supportive of her journey to find love (and vice versa). These two share the Bachelor experience, but they're also adult siblings who have been lucky enough to find amazing partners. Now they're also embarking on their journey as parents together.

Their kids are going to get to grow up together, and there's nothing more special than that. The Waddells, as well as Eric and Elizabeth, are all about to take part in an amazing adventure as they become parents. Thankfully, they two couples will be able to lean on each other every step of the way. Meanwhile, Bachelor Nation is growing by two members, and that's the kind of exciting news that everyone can celebrate.
