Nev and Laura only recently revealed that they are expecting their first child together. "AHHHHHHHHH!!! I’m having a baby," the 31-year-old tweeted, along with a picture of Laura, 30, undergoing an ultrasound procedure. Nev also shared a link to a piece Laura wrote on ATTN, explaining the story of how she found out she was "pregnant accidentally on purpose".

"To make a long letter short, Nev and I certainly have no idea what we're doing, we just know we're doing something we want to be doing," she ultimately concluded in her piece. "Hopefully we don't suck at it, or turn into know-it-all zombies. Mainly we're just really happy and excited."

Her husband-to-be echoed her excitement on Instagram. "IT'S A GIRL!! No words can capture the excitement and joy I feel about becoming a father," he wrote. "I am so in love with you @el_peego and thank you for giving me this incredible gift. You inspire and excite me every day."

Nev has been hosting the MTV online dating docu-series Catfish: The TV Show since November 2012, after being the subject of the 2010 documentary movie Catfish about his own experience being duped by an online dater. Catfish was well received by critics and earned $3.5 million at the box office.

The fifth season of Catfish: The TV Show premiered on February 24 on MTV.
