Bachelor alum Lauren Luyendyk née Burnham has finally revealed the names of her twin children! The reality star welcomed her newborns – a boy and a girl – with her husband, fellow Bachelor alum Arie Luyendyk Jr., on June 11th of this year. The couple did share their son’s name, but only his first name.
The couple’s baby girl had to spend time in the NICU after her birth. Lauren shared yesterday on her Instagram Stories that her daughter was finally released from the hospital. The couple’s son was discharged a few days after his birth. Now, with both babies home, the couple has revealed their names! They’ve named their son Lux Jacob and their daughter Senna James. While the twins have different middle names, both actually have the same meaning! Both Jacob and James are Hebrew names that mean “Supplanter.”
The twins are joined into the Luyendyk family with an older sister: Alessi Ren. The couple shared a video on their YouTube last week that showed Alessi meeting her brother for the first time. Arie and Lauren, who run their daughter’s Instagram account, shared two pictures of the big sister with her twin siblings. Alessi had a huge smile in each image!
In the past, the couple revealed that they had their twin’s names picked out since they chose Alessi’s name. “We’ve had them picked out for the last couple of years,” Lauren shared. “We came up with Alessi’s name. Right after we decided on her name, we actually chose the next two for our boy and our girl. “It just ended up working out where we’re now having a boy and a girl. So we’re just gonna use both of those names that we loved.”
Congratulations again to Arie and Lauren on welcoming their twins into the world! We’re glad both babies are at home and healthy.
