Bekah Martinez is going to be a mom!
The Bachelor season 22 star announced that she is 20 weeks pregnant with boyfriend Grayston Leonard in a video posted to her personal YouTube channel.
“Everyone was wondering, was I gonna do Bachelor in Paradise,” Bekah says in the video. “And I had already said no, but it was still kinda crazy that I had this secret of like, not only do I have a boyfriend. I also now have a kid on the way.”
“I was in disbelief and thought, ‘Is this really happening?'” Bekah told Pure Wow. “I immediately called Grayston and then went across the street to the Dollar Tree and bought two more pregnancy tests. They, of course, were both positive.”
“I’ve just come to such a point of accepting it and embracing it and being excited and telling people and all that. But I was just in such a state of shock when I found out.”
“As it’s gone further, almost every day becomes happier for me,” Leonard adds. “She’s got a little bump now. Her belly button’s starting to push out. It’s like all of these things make it really fun and real. It’s this transforming moment from ‘If I have to, I’ll do it. I’ll be a good dad.'”
The mom to be broke the news to her boyfriend on Father’s Day. “I was crying … and said, ‘You’re going to be a dad!’ We hugged, and it was the first time we really got to be overjoyed. We were finally able to celebrate and soak up all of that emotion.”
“It’s the one thing that I’ve known with certainty for so long. I’ve gone back and forth on the idea of marriage and relationships, but I’ve always felt sure that I want to be a mom.”
