'The Bachelor' couple Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham have a baby on the way! The soon-to-be parents got engaged in March and are all set to marry in January. Is the date going to be pushed with a baby on the way? The happy couple shared with US Weekly, how they found out that Burnham was pregnant.“I kind of had a feeling that I might be pregnant. So my friend insisted on bringing a pregnancy test over,” said Lauren. “Arie came out with the test in his hand and tears in his eyes. He was like, ‘You’re pregnant!’”, she continued. They both further revealed how they bought 6 more pregnancy tests just to make sure! “We weren’t trying, but we are so excited. It’s going to be a whole new chapter in our lives,” said Arie.




Given that their wedding is in January, will things change now that Lauren is pregnant? She reveals, "The first thing we thought of was, 'Oh, my gosh. Our wedding!' Obviously, we're not married yet, but this is the way it happened." She continued, "And this is probably the way it was meant to happen!" Looks like the couple doesn't plan on changing their wedding date. 

E! News reports that Lauren spoke about how her first trimester was rather difficult. "I had really bad morning sickness and barely left the house. But over the last week, I've started feeling a lot better, so it's nice to have my energy back," says the mom-to-be. She's happy that her fiance takes care of most things around the house, which has been a great help to her. 37-year-old Arie already has predictions for the kind of parents he thinks the couple will be. He thinks he's going to be "such a softie" whereas his fiance is "a little bit more of the disciplinarian." Burnham jokingly added, "We're kind of basing it off of how we parent our dogs!"

Lauren and Arie have had quite the rollercoaster relationship. They got engaged eight months ago on 'The Bachelor'. Arie had originally proposed to Becca Kufrin, 28, but realized he still had feelings for the runner-up on the show, Lauren. After a heartbreaking break-up with Becca on TV, that faced a major backlash from fans all over, he got engaged to Burnham and the couple has been together ever since! Becca got another chance at her happily ever after, as she went on to star on 'The Bachelorette' and is now engaged to Garrett Yrigoyen. Lauren and Arie, with their baby on board, are set to marry in Hawaii on January 2019.
