Bachelor couple, Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham are pregnant with their first child. The couple, who are engaged, shared the news with Us Weekly.
“I kind of had a feeling that I might be pregnant. So my friends insisted on bringing a pregnancy test over,” Lauren recounted to Us Weekly. After taking the test she made Arie read the results. “Arie came out with the test in his hand and tears in his eyes. He was like, ‘You’re pregnant!'”
But taking one test wasn’t enough for them. They went out and bought six more pregnancy tests just to make sure she actually was pregnant.
“Lauren took all of them and they were all positive,” Arie said. “We weren’t trying, but we are so excited. it’s going to be a whole new chapter in our lives.”
The couple is set to get married in January 2019 in Hawaii. Their relationship has been controversial since the beginning. Arie, who was the bachelor on season 20, originally proposed to Becca Kufrin in the finale and not Lauren.
After the show, he realized he was in love with Lauren and broke up with Becca with the cameras rolling. On the After The Final Rose special in March 2016, they got engaged. After they got engaged they bought a house together in Phoenix, Arizona and moved in together.
It hasn’t been all smooth sailing for the pregnant and engaged couple.
“October was miserable,” Lauren stated. “I had really bad morning sickness and barely left the house. But over the last week I’ve started feeling a lot better, so it’s nice to have my energy back.”
The soon-to-be parents predict that Arie will be the “softie” while Lauren will be more “disciplinarian” because that’s how they parent their dogs.
Arie and Lauren aren’t the only Bachelor people to be expecting. Bekah Martinez, who was also on season 20, revealed in September that she is also expecting.
