The 2 are also expecting their first child together — a girl — so they have more than just their nuptials to celebrate.

Trevor Noah Drops $20 Million On Bel-Air Bachelor Pad

Trevor Noah added an incredible piece of property to his portfolio … because we’ve learned he recently dropped a boatload of cash on a baller bachelor pad.

Our real estate sources confirm Trevor plunked down over $ 20 MILLION for a jaw-dropping estate in Bel-Air … and the ‘Daily Show’ host quietly purchased the contemporary mansion through a blind trust. 

Trevor’s new digs, first reported by Yolanda’s Little Black Book, are pretty insane. The two-level pad is a whopping 10,044 square feet, and it’s surrounded by glass walls and wraparound terraces, giving Trevor some breathtaking views of L.A.

The 1.31-acre property sits on a hillside lot in western Bel-Air, on a quiet cul-de-sac … but there’s nothing quiet about Trevor’s place. The master suite is massive — we’re talking 2,200 feet — and we haven’t even mentioned the home theater, infinity pool and the 500-gallon saltwater aquarium!!! 

As if that’s not enough for Trevor to entertain his guests … there are 3 other bedrooms with unobstructed views, and one is an “ultra private VIP suite” with private entrance.

Mauricio Umansky and James Harris of The Agency listed the property — and Jonah Wilson of Hilton & Hyland repped Trevor.

Congrats, Trev!

‘The Bachelor’ Season Premiere Colton’s Virginity Top of Mind

As if the new ‘Bachelor’ didn’t already know he was a virgin, his suitors (and the show at large) constantly reminded him during the season premiere … and it got old fast.

Colton Underwood‘s journey got started Monday night, and as he was meeting the lovely ladies who’ll be vying for his heart …and apparently his crotch. His virginity was on the minds in the mouths of almost every girl. It was awkwardly charming at first, but quickly became a tired gag.

Even worse … the virgin gimmicks quickly escalated from a chat to full-blown costumes just to land the joke. One girl popped a “cherry” balloon in front of Colton, another teased him with a real peach, and yet another took away his “V” card in a corny magic trick.

But, Alex D. of Boston took the cake (and the award for worst contestant thus far) by creeping out of the limo in a human-size sloth suit and lurching over to him in slow-mo … staying committed to the whole sloth thing the entire way through. 

It was cringeworthy to say the least. Fact is … Colton’s more than just his virginity — here’s hoping the producers of the show realized that before it’s too late.

‘Bachelor’ Colton Underwood Sometimes Fake is Great!!!

EXCLUSIVE

Colton Underwood admires women who fake it for love.

We got the ‘Bachelor’ star in WeHo heading into Boa and asked about Bri Barnes, who greeted him on the show with a fake Aussie accent. Colton thinks the move was fantastic … deceptive, maybe, but deliciously so.

Our photog couldn’t help expressing concern for the famed virgin, cautioning that people on the set needed to have his back in case he dove headfirst into the sea of love.

The premiere airs Monday night, and even though Colton has said being a virgin is only a small part of his composition as a person, it’s clearly going to be a big part of the show.
