J.J. Lane will be a girl dad two times over, as he and wife Kayla revealed that they're expecting a daughter together!

The reality TV star, who competed on the 11th season of The Bachelorette, revealed the exciting news in an Instagram post on Friday, writing, "I love being a girl dad! Can't wait to welcome our sweetie into the world in July!"

"Truly storybook that we found out the gender the exact same day, 3 years removed, from when we got engaged (and happened to be in Kauai again)!" J.J. added.

In the picture he posted along with the sweet announcement, J.J. and Kayla, who wed in February 2020, can be seen posing together in the Hawaiian golden hour while J.J. holds up two large pink balloons and Kayla holds a too-cute-for-words pink hula skirt and matching lei.

"That's awesome! Congrats man," former Bachelorette star Jared Haibon – who is expecting his first child with wife Ashley Ianconetti – wrote in the comments.

"Won't be able to unwrap this present until July!" J.J. wrote, while Kayla shared the same photo with the caption, "The best gift wasn't under the tree this year… Littlest Lane coming July 2022 💛🎁👶."

Speaking with PEOPLE after their gorgeous wedding, the couple got candid about including J.J.'s daughter Gemma in their big day.

"She was very emotional and she was crying," J.J. said of Gemma walking down the aisle as a junior bridesmaid. "Then she got into position and she was fighting tears and I was fighting tears. It was a struggle to keep it together!"

Added Kayla: "I wanted her to know she was so loved by both of us. I just want to be a support system and love her as my own. She is officially my first child and I just want to be there for her. So we all said our vows together as a family."
