Another "Bachelorette" baby is on the way!

Ashley Hebert, now Ashley Rosenbaum, and husband J.P. Rosenbaum, the star and winner of season 7 of the ABC dating show, which aired in 2011, are expecting their first child.

The two appear on the cover of the latest issue of the tabloid magazine In Touch (see above), which shows J.P. holding his hand over Ashley's bare pregnant belly. On Wednesday, March 26, the pair retweeted a tweet by the outlet that read: "We could not be more excited to reveal @ashhebert and @JP_Rosenbaum are expecting their first child!"

Other former stars of "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette" took to Twitter to congratulate the couple, as did show host Chris Harrison -- who performed their wedding ceremony, and supervising producer Elan Gale. Here are several responses:

Molly Mesnick, who has a daughter with husband and "The Bachelor" season 13 star Jason Mesnick, tweeted: "Soooo happy for you @JP_Rosenbaum & @ashhebert ;) This will change your lives in the most amazing way!!!! :)"

It aired on ABC and became the third "Bachelor" franchise couple to have their wedding made into a TV special.
