“The newest member of our family”

Osher took to the socials last night to share the news, revealing that they’re calling their little peanut “Chickpea” at the moment … and that they’re totally, utterly over the moon.

“We are very happy to introduce you to the newest member of our family, joining us late August 2019,” Osher posted on Instagram.

“Please meet ‘Chickpea’, the person behind the last three months of @audreygriffen’s surprise day-naps and a mysterious aversion to her favourite Ramen restaurant. All four of us are over the moon and looking forward to meeting this wonderful young human”

“Audrey saved my life”

Osher met make-up artist Audrey on the set of The Bachelor and fell in love pretty much at first sight. Audrey is already mum to a daughter named Georgia and Osher said the pair have had a transformative effect on him.

“Meeting Audrey saved my life. Meeting Georgia gave my life a purpose and direction that I never expected,” Osher explained on Instagram.

“These two wonderful women have given me so much already, they’ve helped me heal and grow – and now to have the chance to share with them the experience of bringing up a child together is just incredible.”

In a matching update, Audrey was similarly elated.

“Meet the newest addition to our family,” she posted. “The reason behind my sudden increase in ‘elasticised pants’ Google searches. Our lives are already so full of love and adventures and I’m blessed to have such an amazing daughter in Georgia. Looking forward to meeting this little one and expanding my heart even more.”
