We have it on good authority that the sweet, gorgeous, baby-holding Sean Lowe will be at the center of the next season of The Bachelor. Ever since we heard the news, we’ve have been anxious for news of which lovely ladies will be pouring out of the limos to meet him — and when production would begin. We’ve heard about a few of the ladies and can’t wait to meet all 25 (jury is still out on whether they’re good enough for our Seanie), but what about that whole production part?

While it looks like we’ll have to wait a little longer for all the dirty deets, we do have some exciting news — The Bachelor 2013 is now filming! Series creator Mike Fleiss tweeted today, saying “Started shooting Bachelor 2013 this morning... We definitely picked a great guy!!!”

But that’s not even the best news Mr. Fleiss has given us today. A couple hours after sending our little hearts a-flutter, Mike added “He’ll be the most shirtless bachelor-- ever!!!” (Has anybody seen our blood pressure medication?)

Is it wrong that even though we can’t wait for January — when the new season premieres — we still hope that Sean might walk away from the whole franchise and come knocking on our door instead? We have plenty of roses growing in our garden...
