Bachelor Baby! Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham Are Pregnant

Kekenapep –

Will you accept this onesie? Season 20 Bachelor Arie Luyendyk Jr. and fiancée Lauren Burnham are pregnant with their first child, the couple reveal exclusively to Us Weekly in this week’s issue, on stands now.

“I kind of had a feeling that I might be pregnant. So my friend insisted on bringing a pregnancy test over,” Burnham, 26, tells Us, adding that she made her fiancé read the results. “Arie came out with the test in his hand and tears in his eyes. He was like, ‘You’re pregnant!’”

Luyendyk Jr., 37, and Burnham were at the center of a dramatic story line on season 20 of The Bachelor. After he proposed to Becca Kufrin on the finale, he broke up with her after realizing he was in love with runner-up Burnham. The pair got engaged on the After the Final Rose special in March 2016 and are set to tie the knot in January 2019 in Hawaii.

In April 2018, the pair purchased their first home together in Phoenix, Arizona, where they live with their two dogs, Bastain and Dallas. They welcomed Us into their home for their exclusive pregnancy announcement shoot.

Just Making Sure

After their home test, the couple drove to the store and got six more tests just to be sure. “Lauren took all of them and they were all positive,” the former racecar driver says. “We weren’t trying, but we are so excited. It’s going to be a whole new chapter in our lives.”

Rough Riding

The pregnancy hasn’t been an easy one so far for the real estate agent. “October was miserable. I had really bad morning sickness and barely left the house,” she shares with Us. “But over the last week I’ve started feeling a lot better, so it’s nice to have my energy back.” She also hired a new trainer to help: “When I wasn’t feeling that great, I was trying to go on a lot of walks. But now I do cycling a few times a week!” The Virginia Beach native also adds that her husband-to-be “does everything” around the house, which is a big help!

Wedding Planning

The duo are still planning to exchange their vows in January and, luckily, she just began fittings for her wedding dress and will work with designer Hayley Paige while she continues to grow. “The first thing we thought of was, ‘Oh my gosh. Our wedding,’” she says. “Obviously we’re not married yet, but this is the way it happened — and this is probably the way it was meant to happen!”

Parent Predicitions

When it comes to what kind of parent each of them will be, Luyendyk Jr. admits he’ll be “such a softie” with their little one, as “Lauren is a little bit more of the disciplinarian.” Burnham adds: “We’re kind of basing it off of how we parent our dogs!”
