They may be still living in different states, but it appears Richie Strahan and Alex Nation are feeling clucky.

It seems the pitter-patter of tiny feet may be in the near future for the reality duo, who fell in love on last year’s season of The Bachelor Australia.

Alex is seen in the picture looking at ease with the adorable dark-haired bub, who is a friend’s baby.

The 25-yar-old stunner has her hair perfectly coiffed to one side of her face and she is wearing a flattering black and white dress.

The picture comes after Alex revealed in October that Richie had finally met her five-year-old son Elijah.

At the time, Alex said that the meeting had occurred over FaceTime and the pair hit it off instantly.

“We are still trying to figure out a good time for Richie and the little guy to meet,” Alex told TV Week.

“But they have done FaceTime, which was super cute.

“I swear to god my ovaries exploded, it was cute.”

And in November, New Idea reported that Alex revealed she would love to have more children with Richie in a fan Q&A session.

"I would absolutely love to have more children in the future," she said.

However she did reveal that it might be some time before the couple are ready to introduce a little person in the world.

"Richie and I have much to do first!! We also want to enjoy our time with Elijah as well, for now," she said.
