The Challenge stars Jenna Compono and Zach Nichols just revealed the sex of their baby with the help of some balloons. 

In a new video posted on their respective Instagram accounts on March 6, Jenna and Zach popped a massive black balloon, which revealed dozens of smaller blue balloons inside it. Yes, it's official: These two are expecting a baby boy. 

The couple's friends from The Challenge franchise gushed over the good news in the comments section. Weston Bergmann wrote, "Zach's reaction is just straight up adorbes," while Brad Fiorenza added, "Congratulations fam!! Can't wait to see this little man!!" Kyle Christie joked, "Congratulations he's already better at the @challengemtv than @westonbergmann."

The couple, who first connected on The Challenge: Battle of the Exes II in 2015, got engaged in December 2019. Though they were supposed to have their wedding last year, they postponed the celebration due to the coronavirus pandemic. However, that didn't stop the duo from making some big moves: In February, the couple shared that they were welcoming their first child together. 

Jenna wrote on Instagram at the time, "Happy Valentine's Day! Zach & I are expecting our first baby. After our wedding was postponed, we decided to start the next chapter of our lives. It really wasn't a hard decision for us, we were both super excited and ready."

She continued, "Luckily, we were fortunate enough to get pregnant on our first try and have had zero complications regarding my first trimester. We are truly blessed and we can't wait to meet our little one in August."


Following the big announcement, the reality stars created an Instagram account for their soon-to-be-born baby boy, which has detailed Jenna's pregnancy journey. 

On Feb. 24, Jenna and Zach shared a sonogram picture to Instagram, writing in the caption, "13 week 3 day checkup yesterday! Baby is healthy, very wiggley and waved the whole time! So far so good, the baby is constantly growing and is healthy and that's all we can ask for! We find out the gender March 6th! What are your guesses?"
