The Bachelor Australia host Osher Gunsberg and wife Audrey Griffen have announced they’re expecting their first child.

The soon-to-be dad shared the sweet news to Instagram, sharing a sonogram image of the unborn bub affectionately nicknamed ‘Chickpea’.

The 44-year-old host wrote, “We are very happy to introduce you to the newest member of our family, joining us late August 2019. Please meet ‘Chickpea’, the person behind the last three months of @audreygriffen’s surprise day-naps and a mysterious aversion to her favourite Ramen restaurant.”

Although it will be the first child for Günsberg, Griffen has a teenage daughter from a previous relationship named Georgia.

We are very happy to introduce you to the newest member of our family, joining us late August 2019. ▫️▫️ Please meet “Chickpea”, the person behind the last three months of @audreygriffen’s surprise day-naps and a mysterious aversion to her favourite Ramen restaurant. All four of us are over the moon and looking forward to meeting this wonderful young human. ▫️▫️ For me, meeting Audrey saved my life. Meeting Georgia gave my life a purpose and direction that I never expected. ▫️▫️ These two wonderful women have given me so much already, they’ve helped me heal and grow – and now to have the chance to share with them the experience of bringing up a child together is just incredible. ▫️▫️ Now, it’s off to provide on-call back rubs and to fetch ginger tea when needed.

“All four of us are over the moon and looking forward to meeting this wonderful young human,” he added, referring to his wife and stepdaughter. “For me, meeting Audrey saved my life. Meeting Georgia gave my life a purpose and direction that I never expected.

Osher and Audrey met on the set of The Bachelor in 2014, three years after Osher’s marriage to model Noa Tishby ended.

The food at @greenhouse_canteen was so good I ordered take away for lunch! Can’t do Logies while hungry 🤤

Congratulations to the growing family!
