There will soon be another baby in Bachelor Nation. Former Bachelor star Arie Luyendyk Jr. and the lady who won his heart, Lauren Burnham, are expecting their first child.
The couple revealed their news exclusively to US Weekly before taking to social media to express their joy and shock of becoming parents. Burnham shared that she thought she had a feeling she might be pregnant.
Thanks to a friend insisting she take a pregnancy test, but she did but did not tell her fiancé' she was taking the test. Instead, Burnham made Luyendyk Jr. the stick to read the results alone in the bathroom while she waited outside to find out if she was expecting. He was completely surprised, to say the least, but was thrilled to tell his bride-to-be that she was pregnant.
Both Luyendyk Jr. and Burnham wanted to make sure the results were accurate, so they drove to the drugstore to get another test. They wound up buying six more tests just so there was no question regarding the results. All six came back positive. Despite not trying to a child, the couple is over the moon to be starting a family.
Burnham revealed the first trimester was not easy for her. In fact, she was plagued with morning sickness for most of October admitting she was so sick that she hardly left their house. Now that Burnham is in her second trimester the soon-to-be mom is feeling much better. She even shared that she has started getting her energy back and is also beginning to exercise.
It has been quite the year for the parents to be, who met on the hit ABC show and got engaged last spring. They are planning to tie the knot in January 2019. Each has confirmed the pregnancy news does not change their wedding plans; it only makes it more special. The newest Bachelor Nation baby will arrive early next summer.
For now, both Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham are focusing on her pregnancy. She said her future husband takes care of everything around the house and dotes on her every need.
