The Bachelor: Arie Luyendyk & Lauren Burnham Have A Baby Girl
The Bachelor alums Lauren Burnham and Arie Luyendyk have eagerly awaited the arrival of their sweet baby girl. Soon after their 39 week ultrasound, Lauren went into labor. However, it wasn’t a quick stay by any means.
The reality star labored over a day, and required a labor inducing drug. In addition, she also received an epidural. The couple chronicled their labor journey on Instagram. Daddy Arie updated The Bachelor fans every step of the way. Also, he made sure the world knew mommy and baby were doing just fine.
A Journey to Remember
The duo captured their baby journey via social media. They created an Instagram account just for their baby girl. Each week starting at 11 weeks, Lauren posted a cute baby bump picture. In addition, she included a food comparison and provided details of the baby’s growth.
But, the ride for The Bachelor couple hasn’t been easy. Baby Luyendyk was breeched and required a procedure to be flipped. Luckily, the maneuver was successful. She never flipped back, and remained head down the rest of the time.
