The couple celebrated their little one by throwing a huge party with their loved ones, and in a photo from the bash, the Siesta Key star cradles Alyssa’s small baby bump as they share a kiss. “Little princess on the way,” he captioned the image. Alyssa re-posted the picture on her Instagram Story, and gushed in the caption, “BEST DAY EVER.” These two have been very public with their relationship on social media, but fans don’t know much about Alyssa. Here’s what we’ve uncovered:

Thrilled to finally announce something that I have been working on for a while now. This has been a dream of mine for many years and I can finally say it’s all coming to reality.
