UPDATE: Erica Rose is pregnant and engaged!

During Sunday night's The Bachelor at 20: A Celebration of Love, the former contestant revealed to Chris Harrison that she is getting married to Galen Gentry very soon. 

"It's May 1. It's a shotgun wedding. I've always wanted that though," she shared while laughing. "It's cute because we only dated for like eight weeks just like in the Bachelor world." 


Erica Rose is ready to start a family of her own!

E! News can confirm the former Bachelor and Bachelor Pad contestant is pregnant and expecting her first child with boyfriend Galen Gentry.

"Erica met Galen through work, and they fell in love at first sight! She was really ready to have a baby and they started trying," her rep told E! News. "Erica's family is super excited. When Erica's father heard the news, he said he wanted to throw a big Texas wedding! Though no plans are confirmed yet. They are really looking forward to the new addition to the family."

While the couple doesn't know the sex of their baby just yet, the duo has already begun planning for the little one's arrival before this September.

That planning, however, doesn't include a wedding just yet.

"[We] aren't married yet, but we are considering ourselves engaged," she explained to Us who first broke the news. "We were thinking about getting married in the next few months, but I think it'll probably happen after the baby comes, since there's so much to do!"

Fans will remember Erica as the contestant who couldn't help but wear a tiara while competing for Prince Lorenzo Borghese's heart on Season 9 of The Bachelor. She would later appear on two seasons of Bachelor Pad.

While the couple reportedly started dating in November, one look at Erica's Instagram and it's clear that she's found someone special with Galen. Whether celebrating the holidays together or vacationing in Mammoth, the pair is all smiles whenever they are together.

"Enjoying the afternoon with my ❤," she recently wrote on Twitter. "Cheers to what's to come in #2016 @galengentry."

Congratulations to the couple on their big news!
