Francesca Farago and Jesse Sullivan are sharing an update on their IVF journey.

As Too Hot to Handle and Perfect Match star Farago attended the 2024 People's Choice Awards with Sullivan on Sunday, the pair told Laverne Cox on E!'s pre-show red carpet that they are hoping to welcome a baby to their family before they tie the knot.

"Yeah, we want a huge wedding, but I think it would be so cute if we had a little baby in our arms or two babies in our arms at the wedding," she said. "So hopefully we can have a baby first and do the big wedding after."

The couple got engaged in May 2023, more than one year after they started dating shortly after Farago finished filming Netflix's Perfect Match. Farago and Sullivan shared shortly after their announcing their engagement that they were each planning to freeze their eggs in order to have twins together, according to E! News.

Williams, a trans TikTok star, also fielded questions from Cox, 51, on the misconceptions the wider public may hold regarding the LGBTQ+ community and pregnancy. "I think that one of the biggest misconceptions is that we can't do what they can do, but we can do everything everyone else can do," he said on the red carpet. "We can have a family, we just do it with a little more fun, you know? A little more pizazz."

"I feel blessed, like I have the most perfect person," Farago added of the couple's relationship. "I just felt so lucky and I feel like people are judgmental for no reason. I think trans guys are the best, and personally, I just couldn't picture my life any different. I'm just lucky."

Back in August, Farago told PEOPLE that she and Williams — whom she first met  via a Zoom call (Farago was interviewing the influencer for a TikTok pride event) — have been planning their wedding ceremony since their very first date. At the time, she also shared the couple were considering getting pregnant following their wedding, scheduled for this spring.

"Pretty instantly we knew,” she recalled. “We both left our first date texting our close friends that we were in love! We just had this instant connection that was undeniable.”
