Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried are full of surprising announcements this week. First, they let everyone know that they had selected a wedding date... although the announcement didn’t turn out to be quite as official as we were hoping (April 1st is the worst). Now, they are deciding to expand their brood!

On April 1, Des posted a Facebook pic of the engaged couple holding up an adorable little pooch. “I think it's about time we get a dog,” Des captions the shot. Des went on to ask her fans to suggest breeds that might be best for them.

OK, so adding a canine friend to your family isn’t quite the same as birthin’ a baby, as expecting Bachelorette couple Ashley Hebert and J.P. Rosenbaum can probably attest. However, picking out a pet as a couple is often a first step toward realizing that you’re ready for a tyke. So we definitely think this bodes well.

Indeed, this is just one more sign that the couple is moving closer to setting a (real) date and getting hitched. Des recently confirmed they’ll have the wedding in California — rather than Seattle, where they currently live — and they even know what their wedding cake will look like! Plus, bridal stylist Des is already well on her way to designing her dress, so that’s taken care of...

Enough prep, you two — it’s time to send out those freakin’ “save the dates” already! Oops, deep breath. We get a little too worked up about our favorite couples sometimes.

Are you excited that Des and Chris are getting a dog? And when do you think they’ll get married?
