'Never Been Prouder': Bachelor Nation's Arie Luyendyk Jr., Wife Lauren Burnham Share First Glimpse Of Newborn Twins — See Adorable Snaps
Party of five! Bachelor Nation success story Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham debuted their newborn twins via Instagram on Monday, June 14.
“Never been prouder of my wife than in this moment,” the proud papa captioned a series of snaps of his wife with the infants in the hospital. “She is the strongest woman I know and I’m lucky to be on this incredible journey with her. We are proud parents of a healthy boy and girl!”
“We did it babe!” Burnham wrote on her baby daddy's post. “I love you so much!” The 29-year-old reality star posted a series of pics on her personal account, writing, “6.11.21 @luyendyktwins 🤍🙏🏼,” referring to the twins having being born on Friday.
The couple received support and praise from fellow Bachelor Nation members. “So happy for your family! They are absolutely perfect ❤️❤️,” Jade Roper gushed. “Pure happiness right there. Congrats!!! 🙌,” Bachelorette alum Kiptyn Locke wrote.
Even controversial ex-Bachelor Nation host Chris Harrison — who recently walked away from the franchise after being embroiled in a racism scandal — congratulated the pair, writing, “Beautiful double trouble. Congratulations my friend.”
Over the weekend, the couple announced on Instagram that they had welcomed their twins. "@luyendyktwins are here! Momma and babies are doing great and everything went smoothly,” the former race car driver gushed via Instagram Story on Saturday, reported PEOPLE.
"Spending time cherishing these moments, thank you for all the support," he added.
The proud parents announced in December they were expecting after revealing she suffered a heartbreaking miscarriage earlier that year. They shared days after their initial announcement they were expecting twins, then confirmed a month later it was a boy and a girl.
After she found out she was expecting twins, Burnham talked exclusively to OK! about the pressure she was feeling on being a mother to multiple kids. "We definitely weren’t expecting to have three kids all at one time but we are really excited, it’s such a blessing, you know," she told OK!.
"We suffered a miscarriage earlier last year, and in a way I kind of feel like I got that baby back, so it’s kind of cool that I get to heal from that experience — getting two babies at one time. That is really awesome, but we are kind of nervous about juggling all three of them at one time, so we will just kind of take it day by day and see how it goes."
The reality TV couple, who tied the knot in January 2019 after they met on his season of The Bachelor, also share 2-year-old daughter Alessi.
