Becca Kufrin and Thomas Jacobs are having a baby!
The duo fell in love (and accumulated roses) on “Bachelor In Paradise” in 2021. Kufrin, 33, was initially the one to pop the question last spring, and now the duo is becoming parents!
Kufrin and Jacobs found each other after their first respective Bachelor Nation experiences. Jacobs initially competed for former ‘Bachelorette’ Katie Thurston’s heart, and Kufrin had been previously engaged to her ‘Bachelorette’ pick Garrett Yrigoyen and ‘Bachelor’ alum Arie Luyendyk Jr.
Kufrin and Jacobs’ love story almost wasn’t; Kufrin broke up with her now fiancé while on the beach during ‘Paradise.’ The parents-to-be have reflected on their split, sharing insight into the lessons learned from their brief time apart.
The couple is now eons away from their not-so-sunny breakup and preparing for their latest relationship milestone! Kufrin and Jacobs shared their big news on Instagram, even incorporating the furry members of their family into their pregnancy announcement!
Looking Back At Kufrin And Jacobs’ Relationship So Far
The Blast has covered several bits of Mr. and Mrs. Jacobs’s future relationship!
When reflecting on their split last spring, Kufrin revealed she needed a dose of reality in their relationship; ‘Paradise’ had been too dreamy for her to see a future within their relationship.
Speaking to E! per one of our pieces of coverage on their romance, Kufrin recalled, “When we were dating on the beach for that short time, everything was smooth sailing. It was perfect… for me, I needed more of the ‘real life.’ I needed that breakup in that short courtship, ultimately bringing us back together.”
Kufrin also told Us Weekly she had never had a partner work as hard as Jacobs to restore their relationship.
“I think [his reaction] was game-changing for me,” she said. “Because I never really had somebody fight, I would say tooth and nail to want to keep a relationship with me.”
Thomas had been devastated by the breakup but had felt confident they could reconcile.
“We broke up on the beach,” Jacobs recalled. “At that point, you don’t have a responsibility to anybody to be together unless it’s to each other to be together…,” he explained.
Hindsight had also been helpful for the father-to-be. Jacobs, 30, noted the importance of the couple’s decision to eventually give their relationship another chance instead of opting to say apart.
“I know for me… That’s a lot more real. We could’ve just chosen to walk away, and no one would’ve said anything,” Jacobs recalled. “We chose each other and continue to choose each other daily.”
The lovebirds announced their engagement last May with a sweet Instagram carousel; Kufrin planned an elaborate proposal to surprise her man!
“In the ultimate plot twist, he said ‘yes!” Kufrin told her followers in the caption of her post. “We’ve been keeping this secret between us and close family & friends for a while, but we’re so excited to shout it from the rooftops! I finally found my chauffeur for life and the one who makes my heart smile daily. I can’t wait to do it all with you, Tommy; thanks for making me the happiest gal alive. I love you to the moon and back,” her post concludes.
The Bachelor Nation Babes Will Soon Get To ‘Do’ Parenthood Together!

The duo both posted the news of Kufrin’s pregnancy to their respective Instagrams, revealing a photoshoot showcasing their expanding family; the pair happily showed off the baby’s first photo, too; Kufrin’s ultrasound photos and footage are proudly displayed!
“Party of 5 coming September 2023,” the post begins. “Little Bebe, we can’t wait to meet, hold, and watch you grow. We already love you to the moon and back- Mom & dad.”
