The Biggest Loser's Sam Poueu and Stephanie Anderson have made some everlasting memories together, and now they'll have parenthood to add to that.

The couple, who tied the knot last April, are expecting their first child together, E! News confirms.

"It is such a joy and a testament to what we've been through that we've been able to go through some of the hardest chapters in our lives and start this new chapter with such positivity. It's exciting," Anderson told Us Weekly, who first reported the story. "It means the world to both of us...We met to fall in love and start this family."

In September 2011, the duo went through a big scare after Poueu was hospitalized for a horrific fall from a San Francisco building, and the way Anderson took care of him during that tough time is what makes him sure that she'll be an excellent mother.

"Just from the experience of her being my caretaker post-accident, it was a dead giveaway that she'd be a fantastic mother. That was an early sign for me that our child is going to have the best mother ever," Poueu told the mag. "Given everything we both have been through this past year, this [pregnancy] eclipsed everything. It put everything back into perspective. I felt like this was one of the many reasons God kept me alive during the five-story fall, so I could be the father of my wife's baby."

Yeah, seriously—pass the tissue. But that's not all, Stephanie had some sweet things to say about her hubby, as well.

"Sam has been wonderful. He rubs my feet!" she gushed, and added, "I am feeling really good. I'm starting to feel changes in my body, and I'm excited to see the full out belly!"

Stephanie even took to Twitter to share her news. "I am going to be a MOMMY!! We're so excited! :) @sampoueu and I spoke exclusively to @usweekly about our big news. Feeling great.#blessed," she wrote.

Congratulations to the parents-to-be!
