There’s a Baby on the Way for Arie & Lauren + Other Big Bachelor News


Bachelor Nation, we hope you’re sitting down. Arie Luyendyk may not be anyone’s favorite bachelor after all the drama that unfolded during and after Season 22. (Which, by the way, feels like it happened years ago, despite the season only airing earlier this year.)

However, it’s hard not to get excited over a pregnancy announcement.

Arie + Lauren = The Perfect Couple?

Yes, apparently Lauren Burnham is the one. While Arie initially popped the question to Becca Kufrin, he soon realized he’d made a mistake. After a bunch of unnecessarily-aired drama, he proposed to Burnham instead during the After the Final Rose special in March.

While he admitted to having made some bad decisions, he seemed to be sincere in his change of heart. “I can’t imagine a life without you,” he told Burnham. “I can’t imagine a life without you.”

Now, they’ve bought a house together and are both engaged and expecting a baby, too!

Pregnancy Announcement

While they aren’t getting married until January, they’ve apparently already got a bun in the oven. And this time it’s for real.

As you may recall, Arie made a rather ill-conceived April Fool’s joke about Lauren being pregnant back in the spring. At the time, he was met with quite a bit of backlash for his insensitivity towards women with infertility issues.

This time, however, they have the ultrasound images to prove it. In an exclusive reveal, they told the story to Us Magazine.

Lauren Bushnell has a New Man

In other Bachelor-related news, Lauren Bushnell has found a new romance. While things might not have worked out with Ben Higgins, Lauren has now moved on – twice. After things weren’t so “Happily Ever After” with Lauren and her Bachelor beau, she began dating Devin Antin. (Who? According to TMZ, he’s real estate investor based out of Los Angeles.) That, however, didn’t work out either.

Now, the former reality star is apparently dating country singer Chris Lane. On Tuesday, the two made an appearance together on the red carpet at the 66th Annual BMI Country Awards. Plus, there are plenty of social media posts evidencing the new relationship as well.

Now, let’s see if this one lasts.
