Say what you will about The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, the smash hit reality TV franchises have tooootally sparked true love (even if some of the contestants聽do have some surprising confessions and聽weird AF professions). While we eagerly await more proof from聽the premiere of聽Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell鈥檚 spinoff show:聽Ben and Lauren: Happily Ever After!, season 17 alums, Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici Lowe, have just joined聽the ranks of those to make us believe bywelcomingtheir first child, Samuel Thomas, into the world after saying 鈥淚 do鈥 in a televised ceremony.

The聽proud new parents shared the happy news with the world last night, making separate聽Twitter announcements just two minutes apart, full of love-filled messages to fans.

Now, the couple has shared the first photo of the little tyke, simply captioned, 鈥淪amuel Thomas, I think I鈥檓 in love.鈥

Samuel Thomas, I think I'm in love :)

See! It is totally聽possible to find your better half聽with cameras filming your every interaction and millions of people watching! But we already knew that, of course: Just take a look 聽back at some of the show鈥檚 other alum couples, who have also started their families after finding love on the show.

After writing my book #HappilyEverAfter, creating my #GratefulHeart gift collection, and giving a #Tedx talk all with the intention of opening up people鈥檚 eyes to the positive power of gratitude, you would think that my eyes are wide open and bad days just don鈥檛 happen in my world. I mean, I lived a fairy tale in finding my prince charming, have been a blessed mommy of two thanks to that fairy tale love, am lucky enough to call the GORGEOUS Vail valley home, have wonderful friends, parents and extended family and have travelled to places I never thought possible. Gratitude should constantly rule, right? Welllll, I鈥檓 here to say that that鈥檚 not always the case. In an effort to be #RefreshinglyHonest, I am admitting that I should take a chapter out of my own freaking book. Most days, I look at a mess, and I see a mess. I don鈥檛 see the beauty of happy kids or a roof over our heads. When my children whine, disrespect anyone or complain just to complain, I don鈥檛 look at them and thank my lucky stars for their mere presence in my life, especially when it took us so long to conceive Max. I have a lot of work to do, but am posting this to hold myself accountable. Hoping you鈥檒l join me and share your own #RefreshinglyHonest moments! Let鈥檚 make ourselves the better versions of ourselves鈥specially for our next generation! #happySutterfamily #grateful #tbt #steamboatlake #summer2016 #honesttea

1.聽Trista Rehn and Ryan Sutter. The O.G.聽Bachelorette, who kicked off the spinoff series after coming in second place聽on The Bachelor鈥榮 first season, surprised fans by tying the knot with Ryan in聽December 2003.聽Girl knew what she was doing, though, as the couple is still happily married and now has two kids: seven-year-old Maxwell and six-year-old Blakesley.

2.聽Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney.TheBachelor鈥榮 season 13 star, Jason, has gone down in history for shamelessly changing his mind at the very last second (when he聽gave his final rose to Melissa Rycroft, then broke up with her during the show鈥檚 reunion special and asked runner-up Molly to give him a chance). Apparently not one to hold a grudge, Molly聽said 鈥淵es!鈥 and they walked down the aisle in 2010. In 2013, they welcomed their daughter, Riley Anne,聽to their growing family, which also includes Jason鈥檚 11-year-old son, Ty.

3.聽Ashley Hebert and JP Rosenbaum. After picking J.P. as her soulmate聽on聽The Bachelorette鈥榮 seventh season, Ashley and her man took part in a聽televised wedding ceremony back in December 2012. Fast forward two years and Ashley gave birth to their first child, an adorable baby boy named聽Fordham.

4.聽Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried. Bonus! Two months ago, the couple who fell in love on聽The Bachelorette鈥榮 ninth season, took to Instagram to make a biiiig announcement. 鈥淲e have a bun in the oven and it鈥檚 not the warm pastry kind!鈥 Desiree captioned the photo above. 鈥淲e are beyond excited to share that we have a little one on the way!! A new chapter we are both looking forward to.鈥

Guess there really is no stopping true love: even under聽the strangest of circumstances! Who鈥檚 next? Jade and Tanner, we鈥檙e looking at you!
