A few days ago, Bachelor nation stars Lauren Burnham and Arie Luyendyk Jr. announced they were expecting their rainbow baby. They’ve just shared an incredible update!
It’s TWINS! Lauren shared three sonogram images that showed two babies, each labeled on the sonogram as Twin A and Twin B. She captioned her photo saying, “We maaaay have left out one small detail.” She also tagged a new Instagram account dedicated to her twin babies. On their Instagram page, Lauren shares in the bio that they are expected to arrive on July 3rd, 2021. The account has no posts yet.
There was some speculation whether Lauren was carrying twins based on comments she made in the couple’s YouTube video announcing the news. Lauren referred to her baby as “they.” As she doesn’t know the gender yet, it could have been assumed that she was simply using a gender-neutral pronoun for her little one. But now we know the truth! There are two little babies growing inside of her. How exciting!
Arie shared the same image to his own Instagram page and captioned his photo, “2 little miracles. Love them with all my heart already.”
Lauren and Arie met in 2017 on the set of the 22nd season of The Bachelor. Lauren was part of the final two women on Arie’s season and he ultimately chose the other woman, Becca Kufrin. The season ended with Arie proposing to Becca. But two months later, he realized he made a mistake. He wanted to be with Lauren. During the After the Rose special another two months later, Arie proposed to Lauren. They tied the knot less than a year later in January 2019 in a romantic ceremony on Maui.
Congratulations to Lauren and Arie on their pregnancy with twins! We wish them all the best.
