Bachelor Alums Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham Expecting Their Second Child: 'Our Rainbow Baby'
Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham will be parents!
The bachelor alums, who are already parents of the 18-month-old daughter Alessi, announced the good news on Instagram and in a video on their YouTube page. They are expecting their baby on the way in July 2021.
"We're pregnant! We've known for a while and we've tried to hide it," the father-to-be began the almost 10-minute clip as his pregnant wife announced that she really felt sick "from morning sickness , added, "It's so hard to keep it a secret. "
The footage was a high point in the first few months of pregnancy, including the moment the mother-to-be discovered she was pregnant. "We had a miscarriage earlier this year and we had some issues in that area," she said in a separate selfie clip. "We were very, very excited to have a new baby in our family. Unfortunately that didn't work at the time, but I just got a pregnancy test and I think it might be positive."
The couple previously announced in May that they had suffered a miscarriage, which occurs when the embryo died but did not have a physical miscarriage.

Another solemn moment they filmed was when they told their families. "They are all super excited," she said.
"I'm filming this video and I'm 12 weeks a day ago," Burnham said on the video, later explaining that they would announce once they hit the 12 week point. "I had to wait for my mental state all the time to make sure everything was fine."
Luyendyk Jr. added, "There has been a lot of nerves over the past 12 weeks" before his wife said, "Yeah, I thought there was going to be bad news, but then there wasn't. I had a few freak-outs because I did feel like I have a bit of PTSD from the miscarriage we had earlier this year, every time my extreme nausea went away I said, “oh my god are you okay?” call my doctor and call You: "What happens? Are you okay? "She was like talking me off the edge."
Towards the end of her video, Luyendyk Jr. thanked his fans and followers for their support. "Since the last time we had problems with our pregnancy, it's really nice to have a smooth pregnancy. We're just really looking forward to all the good things that come with it," he said.
Along with the video, they wrote on YouTube, "We can't even say how happy and grateful we are. For those of you who were here on our second pregnancy trip, you know exactly how much this means for our family. We can. We can don't wait to start this next chapter and make Alessi a big sister! "
They also announced the baby news on Instagram. "And then 2020 has completely redeemed itself!" wrote Luyendyk Jr., who tested positive for COVID-19 in November.
"It's hard to know what to say now. I've cried over and over for the past 3 months ... it's no different right now. So grateful," said Burnham.
