“our little boy is coming this fall ????,” Underwood, 32, captioned his Instagram announcement, which featured ultrasound photos.

The upload also included snippets from his magazine profile, in which he detailed his journey to fatherhood.

While the Bachelor Nation member assumed he would have “healthy” fertility, a semen sample of his only resulted in four sperm — and “three of them [were] dead.”

Underwood recalled, “Word for word, what the doctor said, he goes, ‘Uh, I can maybe make this one work.’”

Brown, for his part, had “a crazy amount of sperm, like, 50 or 55 million.”

Underwood explained that vigorous exercise and his daily hot tub, sauna and bath use had resulted in low numbers. He went to “sperm rehab” and reversed some of the damage with testosterone.

Underwood and Brown, 41, then paid $350,000 to undergo in vitro fertilization and conceive with the help of a gestational carrier.

“Some people want blue eyes and blond hair,” the former reality star said of their search for an egg donor. “We want somebody deep and cool. I believe in nature versus nurture. So give us the basics and we can show this kid love.”

With 22 eggs, the couple fertilized three embryos — and had “sexy time” of their own during the surrogate’s transfer.

“We just thought that, as the transfer is happening, it’s really important that we feel a part of it somehow,” the “Coming Out Colton” star explained. “Because we’re building our family in love.”

They found out about the transfer’s success 10 days later.

Underwood is best known for his time on ABC, beginning with a stint on Becca Kufrin’s season of “The Bachelorette.”

After starring in Season 23 of “The Bachelor” and leaving with Cassie Randolph, the former couple broke up in 2020.

The former professional football player came out as gay the following year.

Underwood began dating Brown in 2021, with the political strategist getting down on one knee in 2022.
