Their baby is said to be due in January, but there’s no news on whether they’re expecting a boy or a girl.

In their original announcement on Instagram, the couple shared a photograph of both blue and pink balloons along with a chalk board that read: ‘Could be pink, could be blue, all we know is that we’re due. January 2018.’

Aww.

Keep the updates coming, guys.
