Nev Schulman and Laura Perlongo are expecting their first child.

The 'Catfish' host has revealed he and his girlfriend are set to welcome a baby girl together.

He wrote on Instagram: "Words [can't] capture the excitement and joy I feel about becoming a father. I am so in love with you Laura and thank you for giving me this incredible gift. You inspire and excite me every day."

Whilst Laura added: "I ate a big sandwich and it has a heartbeat. Completely head over heels in love and excited to announce Nev and I are bringing a new bb person into the world. It's been a totally wild ride so far."

And Laura - who has been dating the 31-year-old television personality for seven months - also revealed she found out she was "pregnant accidentally on purpose" and was shocked with some of the negative opinions expressed by her co-workers.

Writing for Attn., she shared: "After the initial shock/weed wore off I knew right away I wanted this baby. I was strong. I was smart. I was full of love. I COULD DO THIS! I was confident I'd be great. Nev was confident he would be great. HE COULD DO THIS! Sure we'd only been dating long-distance 7 months (with a break in August) but we were optimistic and in love. It felt as good a time as ever. (And who knows if/when there would ever be a 'better' time.) We were excited ...

"I'm a career-driven girl who did all the things to suggest not 'settling down' until my late thirties. I'm a kidult for lack of a less obnoxious term. I don't even have curtains. Even in my own version of adulthood, I'm a poor excuse for an adult. But did that mean I was supposed to wait until I'm closer to 40 to 'throw my life away', as one (mid-thirties) co-worker suggested. (sic)"
