The mum-to-be, who also tied the knot with husband Nick Shepherdson in September, revealed that the pregnancy was something of a surprise.
"It did happen a lot sooner than we planned, but, you know, no complaints," she says.
"The whole time I was like ‘I can’t be pregnant at my wedding!’ but it’s a blessing and it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be."
Due to coronavirus restrictions and state border closures, many friends and family members were unable to attend the wedding ceremony held in Queensland's Currumbin Valley so Tara didn't have to keep her pregnancy a secret from heaps of people.
"Everyone at the wedding knew because it was so small – all my bridesmaids and their partners knew. There were maybe four people who didn’t know and by the end of the day they saw me sober and knew! I was eight weeks at the time and I was really sick."
And though she was unable to have some champagne on her big day, Tara admits that having cheeseburgers and nuggets on the menu helped considerably.
"For a sick pregnant woman, that just hit the spot!" she jokes.
Though she didn't find romantic love on her Bachelor experiences, Tara has found a solid friendship in her season five co-star, Cobie Wheatley who also served as one of her bridesmaids.
"You kind of come off the show and think ‘Why would I do that?’" Tara tells us.
"Cobie and I were laughing about how she got kicked off the show and looking back at photos thinking ‘I can’t believe we actually did that, it’s so weird that we were on this show!’ But we found each other and now we’re inseparable – everything happens for a reason."
The former Bachie star adds: "I visited her a few weeks ago – she’s living out where the mines are and she has a little boy too so she’s given me a lot of hand-me-down stuff for the baby which is fantastic."
Since many of their nearest and dearest were unable to attend their wedding and had to watch it via an Instagram Live, Tara and Nick are determined to reconnect with friends and family this Christmas.
"We are going to Sydney this year, super excited about that. I have not seen my family in so long and I’m missing them so much," Tara reveals.
"That’s part of the reason I did the Vistaprint cards this year. I haven’t been able to introduce my family and friends to the little bump yet so I thought this would be the perfect way to reconnect them to them all and make sure I’m with them without actually having to be there."
"There are a number of products in their Christmas range that people can personalise so definitely check it out because it’s such a meaningful gift to give someone to increase connectivity in this crazy year."
