Love Is Blind's Bliss and Zack Goytowski Expecting Their First Baby
Love is Blind’s most unexpected couple Bliss Poureetezadi-Goytowski and Zack Goytowski are keeping everyone on their toes with another surprise—they’re having a baby!
“It’s a little bit nerve-wracking, but I think it’s also such a beautiful thing,” Bliss told PEOPLE in an exclusive announcement. “Babies are miracles and blessings, and I think we’ve been so open to sharing our journey and our relationship with the world, and this is our next big beautiful thing. I’m really happy and I hope that it brings joy to other people. It’s definitely brought us a ton of joy.”
Bliss learned of her pregnancy a few months ago, but the couple says the way she revealed the news didn’t exactly go to plan.
“We planned this. We had actively been trying, but it was definitely a surprise,” Bliss shares. “I had felt a little queasy … and I took the test by myself because I wanted to surprise Zack whenever it was [confirmed]. I found out early in the morning while Zack was sleeping and it was shocking. It was like, does that really say positive? What is happening? It was definitely probably one of the most surreal moments of my life.”
“I was actually leaving for a trip and so I needed to tell Zack that day,” she continues. “I had wanted to do this big thing and make this big surprise out of it and buy all this stuff that said ‘Daddy’, but I didn’t have time to do all of that. So I bought a cake and I put ‘I Love You Dad’ on it. It was a really sweet moment and he was confused at first.”
Zack, however, remembers the moment a bit differently. As it turned out, the day Bliss found out the pregnancy news also fell on her mom’s birthday.
“She told me her mother sent us a cake for her birthday,” Zack recalls. “I believe that, right? That is actually something she would do … So Bliss is like, ‘Open up the cake,’ and I read it and it says, ‘I Love You, Dad.’ And I’m like, ‘What? Why is your mom calling me that?’” After getting past his initial confusion and putting the pieces together, Bliss says she and Zack shared “a really special moment.”
“There were tears that came to his eyes and it was a very happy moment,” she recalls as Zack adds, “I was incredibly happy. We both really wanted this and so we just felt really blessed that we were able to have this happen.”
The season four favorites are expecting baby’s arrival in Spring of 2024 and outside of some morning sickness, fatigue and a aversion to garlic early on Bliss says that she’s “embracing” every moment of pregnancy.
“I am feeling really good and happy,” she told People. “It’s definitely really crazy, surreal. Pregnancy is a wild journey of emotions and physical changes, but we’re excited for the end result.”
We can’t wait to meet the first Love is Blind baby!
