Tia Booth from "Bachelor" is dating Taylor Mock, and although they have not been together for that long, they are already expecting their first child.
The "Bachelor in Paradise" star Tia Booth surprised everyone on June 19, 2022, with her pregnancy announcement. She shared a black-and-white image of her boyfriend, Taylor Mock, kissing her forehead as she cradled her belly.
Booth wished Mock a happy "soon-to-be Father's Day" and tributed her dad, who passed away in February. Booth revealed that being pregnant while also mourning her father was challenging. Scroll down to see the image.

HOW DID TIA BOOTH AND TAYLOR MOCK MEET?
The main reason Booth's pregnancy announcement surprised many is that she and Mock have not been dating for long. The couple met at a party in Nashville in January 2021, but nothing romantic happened.
Six months later, she filmed "Bachelor in Paradise" and dated Kenny Braasch, James Bonsall, and Blake Monar, but nobody won over her heart.

After Booth returned home, she gave Mock a chance. He had been doing "sweet things" and trying to date her before her 2021 participation in "Bachelor in Paradise."
However, they didn't have a proper first date. Instead of going out with Mock, Booth invited him over to her home because she had errands to do. He accepted, and they hit it off and became Instagram-official in October 2021.
WHEN WILL TIA BOOTH AND TAYLOR MOCK GET MARRIED?
He joined Booth onstage, and before he even got down on one knee, he started saying, "are you kidding me?!" Mock kneeled and popped the question, and Booth needed a couple of seconds to say yes.
Unlike Booth, Mock is not involved in the entertainment industry.
Booth and Mock are so excited about the upcoming wedding that they have already shared a few details. The reality TV star revealed that she always thought she would elope before Mock proposed because she didn't want to deal with wedding planning.
Now, she wants a big ceremony. As of June 20, 2022, the couple had not decided on almost anything about their wedding. Booth shared with her online followers she had always wanted a long-sleeved wedding dress and a "hot jumpsuit" for the reception.
Booth explained that once they choose a venue, they would decide the date and the rest of the elements of their wedding. Still, she shared a possible date: late October or early November 2023.
