Country singer Chris Lane and his wife, Lauren Bushnell, are expecting their first child together! Bushnell shared a sweet ultrasound video to announce that she’s pregnant via Instagram on Sunday, December 6.
"A dream," the 30-year-old Bachelor alum captioned the video. "Except I’m not dreaming. I’m wide awake. Holding your dads hand, watching you dance around in my belly. Listening to your little heart beat. My new favorite sound. A miracle. New life. Our sweet baby. Thank you Jesus! All the glory belongs to You."
"Hunni when were you gonna tell me you were pregnant?" Lane joked in the comments section.
Friends and fans gushed about the happy news in the comments section. "Ah Lauren I’m so excited for you guys!!!" Lauren Burnham Luyendyk wrote. "So happy for you both!!!" JoJo Fletcher said with crying emojis. "Omg I couldn’t be happier for you guys! Congratulations mama!!!" Olivia Jordan commented.
Lane posted his own announcement on his social media and said, "Prayer works! Hope you look like your Mama ?? @laurenlane."
Bushnell opened up to PEOPLE about her pregnancy and said she just had a "funny feeling" she had a bun in the oven.
"I took a test and believe I was about three-and-a-half weeks at that point, so the second line was very faint. I showed Chris and he didn’t believe the test. We went to the store together and bought a digital test and it clearly read 'pregnant.' I think I took about 10 more still in disbelief!" she said. "Because I was so early we both were shocked but cautiously optimistic!"
"It was very exciting but now feels even more real seeing the ultrasound and hearing the heartbeat," she said.
The couple has been trying for a baby for some time now, and Bushnell wrote over the summer that they were excited to start a family, but it just hadn’t happened yet.
"When I was talking about it with Chris he said 'well, have you prayed about it?' I said 'well, yes' and he responded 'Have you really prayed hard about it? If that’s what we really want, pray, and know it will happen in God’s time if it’s what He wants for us!! I’ll pray with you!'" she recalled.
Bushnell and Lane began dating in 2018 but actually met three years earlier at a radio event. In 2019, he asked for her hand in marriage during a family cookout in Bushnell’s family's backyard, which was seen in his "Big, Big Plans" music video. In a cute full-circle moment, "Big, Big Plans" was the song Bushnell played over her ultrasound video.
The couple wed only four months later and added two dogs to their family before Bushnell got pregnant.
Bushnell previously told PEOPLE that having a family was very important to her. "Career stuff is amazing and I feel very blessed, but I've always wanted to be a mom. I'm excited, that's my number one most exciting next chapter," she said.
Congrats to the happy couple!
