Former ‘The Bachelor’ Stars Arie Luyendyk Jr. & Lauren Burnham Just Had A New Baby
Hey, Bachelor Nation fans. We’ve got some wonderful news for you guys, especially if you were fans of former Bachelor Arie Luyendyk Jr. and runner up Lauren Burnham. You guys remember Arie, right? He was the one who actually proposed to Rebecca “Becca” Kufrin during his headlining Bachelor season in 2018. Then he turned around and dumped Becca to go be with the runner up of his season Lauren Burnham.
If that’s not something right out of a soap opera, I don’t know what is. Anyways, it looks like Arie definitely didn’t regret his decision to go back and get Lauren, because now, they are indeed married. Along with that, it has recently been reported by the folks over at People.com that they just gave birth to their first child! It’s a girl!
The big news was confirmed yesterday, May 29, 2019. Arie hit up his official Instagram account to report the wonderful news. He wrote on Instagram stories, “We have a BEAUTIFUL baby girl 6 lbs, 13 Oz. 20cm Long. Mommy and baby are doing great, we are so incredibly happy.”
Arie also did a regular post on his Instagram. It showed a photo of him holding his new baby girl in his arms. He captioned it with the words, “This was first time she laid eyes on me and I’m forever changed.” You guys can view that post on Arie’s official Instagram account by Clicking Here.

The People.com article also offered up a brief history lesson of how Arie proposed to Lauren on the “After The Final Rose” special back in March 2018. After he had dumped Becca, he told Lauren, “I’ve made some bad decisions, but the best decision was running back to you. I can’t imagine a life without you. I truly believe you are my soulmate.
I’m ready to face this life with you and all that comes with it. The good and the bad. I love you so much.”
At the time, Arie also told People.com, “Love is not always perfect. Everyone finds each other in a different way. It’s not always a fairy tale, but as long as Lauren and I have each other, we’re happy.”
