Bachelor baby is on the way!
Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham revealed the exciting news to Us Weekly that they are expecting their first child ahead of their Hawaii wedding in January.
“I kind of had a feeling that I might be pregnant. So my friend insisted on bringing a pregnancy test over,” Lauren tells the magazine. “Arie came out with the test in his hand and tears in his eyes. He was like, ‘You’re pregnant!'”
The Bachelor’s newest couple then took six more tests just to be sure. “Lauren took all of them and they were all positive,” Arie added. “We weren’t trying, but we are so excited. It’s going to be a whole new chapter in our lives.”
The pregnancy hasn’t been easy for the bride to be. “October was miserable. I had really bad morning sickness and barely left the house,” she said. “But over the last week I’ve started feeling a lot better, so it’s nice to have my energy back. 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.”
Arie and Lauren will be getting married in a private ceremony in Hawaii on Jan. 12.
“The first thing we thought of was, ‘Oh my gosh. Our wedding,'” she added. “Obviously we’re not married yet, but this is the way it happened — and this is probably the way it was meant to happen!”
