UPDATE (2/01/17 at 07:24 a.m. ET):

Jamie Otis and Doug Hehner are pregnant!

The Married at First Sight couple revealed they are expecting a baby in August.

“Doug and I have been praying and not so patiently waiting to have our rainbow baby since we lost our first born, Jonathan Edward, in July 2016,” she told People.

“We are feeling so blessed and truly thankful for this little miracle growing inside of me. Being a mother has been a long awaited dream of mine. It goes without saying that Doug is going to be the best daddy ever. We cannot wait to meet Baby Hehner this coming summer!”

We are so excited for the couple and cannot wait to meet the new baby this summer.

With all the complicated news going on in recent weeks, we were ready for some good news.

And it looks like we’re about to get that from Married at First Sight couple Jamie Otis and Doug Hehner, who teased a big announcement on social media today.

It’s been over six months since the spouses of nearly three years suffered a heartbreaking miscarriage.

However, the Hehners have stayed strong in the aftermath, opening up about losing son Johnathan and sharing in their recovery.

For a while now, they’ve hinted at exciting things to come, from a new home to working to expand their family again.

In fact, just three days ago, Jamie was at the gym, “working on my fitness for my rainbow” (aka rainbow baby, a term for a child conceived after a miscarriage).

On January 31, both took to Instagram, hinting at “the most exciting news,” and sending fans into a tizzy.

“[Doug] and I have the most exciting news to share with you!” the Bachelor alum captions a shot of the two.

“We've been beyond blessed with having the most amazing, supportive #frans (friends + fans),” she continues. “You've been there through the highs of us first being married and our vow renewal to the lows of us losing our sweet Johnathan last summer. We can't thank you enough for all the love and support you've given us.”

Doug also got in on the excitement, calling it “another adventure” they’re about to embark on.

He writes, “My wife and I are about to go on another adventure and we are so excited to share the awesome news with you all TONIGHT.”

So when can we find out what it’s all about?

The FYI network will air a special episode of Married Life tonight, and we’re keeping our fingers crossed another Hehner might be on the way!

Caption this! #love #cutestnephewever
