The rumours are true: The Block's most popular couple Rachel and Tyson are having a baby.

The Wellington-based pair confirmed the news on their Facebook page today, saying: "We have some wonderful news we wanted to share with our lovely fans. We're having a baby!"

Despite coming last in the live auction finale of reality show The Block, Rachel and Tyson became fan favourites and accepted $11,000 in donations after the show finished thanks to a social media campaign.

They gave the rest of the donations to charity.


The pair already have a six-year-old son together, Otis, who joked during the live auction that he thought his parents would be rich if they won $50.
