The Bachelor bub: Sam and Snez’s baby girl is here

Sam Wood and partner Snez

The Bachelor Australia’s Sam Wood and fiance Snezana Markoski, along with Snez’s daughter Eve, have welcomed a brand new baby to the family!

Welcome baby Willow!

Sam and Snez’s baby is here!!!

Sam just shared the exciting news in his private 28 by Sam Wood Member Facebook group this morning, along with a video of the couple’s brand new baby girl. The cute pair have named their new arrival Willow Wendy Wood – and Sam says he’s practically a puddle on the floor!

“I have fallen in love with the most perfect little girl and fallen further in love with the most incredible Mum,” he wrote.

“I also haven’t been able to stop crying.”

He’s just shared the news on his personal Instagram too, in an emoji-filled expression of joy:

“❤️Willow Wendy Wood you make our hearts explode. Mumma you were amazing and I love you more than ever. Eve, you look so natural holding your little sister. Dad- stop crying 😭🙈 Willow you are simply perfect ❤️”

From “Family man”  to “Father”

Sam’s also JUST adorably updated his Instagram bio from the previous “family man” to “father” and it’s making us cry a little bit..!

Sam Wood Instagram bio

Loved-up and bubbed-up!

Engaged since 2015, the cute and very loved-up couple announced the pregnancy via Instagram on Mother’s Day, back in May and have tracked their bumps progress rather closely ever since. 

Snez …. a) has just eaten a bowl of pasta bigger than her head : b) can’t do up her pants : c) is having a BABY!!! d) all of the above #theanswerisd #happymothersday #soexcited” Sam captioned his pregnancy announcement (below).

“We’re so excited to be able to let the world know that our little family of 3 is soon to become 4 : @samjameswood you are going to make an incredible father : Thank you to @vicky_papas_vergara for capturing this beautiful moment. #HappyMothersDay,” Snez returned (also below).

Business as usual

The couple are one of the few successful couples to come out of the Australian franchise. They’d been planning their wedding earlier in the year, but got waylaid by this much-wanted, but surprise little girl instead.

“It was semi-planned… [discussion] was all around the wedding, kind of that we’d love to have kids, but we also want to get married and then have more kids.”

“So we went to Europe and we found a tentative venue on the Amalfi Coast, and I said to Snez, “I bet you as soon as we find something and pick a date, you’ll get pregnant.” And, sure enough, she did.”

She did indeed, with just a little bit of help from Sam, and now they are four!

No doubt we’ll be seeing much more from this energetic and attractive gang in the coming weeks, as they get used to life as a family of four.

They might even get back to wedding planning again in the New Year, too?


Congratulations to Snez, Sam and Eve!
