Wharton and Selfridge later revealed they were expecting a baby girl, sharing photos of the sweet moment they learned the news to Instagram in January.

“I’m a little nervous,” he told PEOPLE. “It’s crazy to be a part of this process. It’s done nothing but brought me and Taylor closer together. It’s such a blessing.”

“I’m really looking forward to just her being a mother to her own kid. I mean she’s been such a good role model for Ryder,” Wharton added. “I’m really eager to see how much she loves her daughter, because she doesn’t even understand it yet.”

“It’s going to be a whole different type of love, and I know she’s going to be an amazing mother,” he said.
