She’s got babies on the brain! Though she just got engaged to Bryan Abasolo a few months ago — as seen on the Monday, Aug. 7, Season 13 finale of The Bachelorette — Rachel Lindsay is already thinking about starting a family with the hunky chiropractor.
“Rachel can’t wait to start a family with Bryan, and he’s more than ready to be a father,” a source exclusively tells Life & Style. “His wanting to have kids was definitely something she considered in choosing him over Peter [Kraus]. They both are so excited.”
The new couple definitely want to get married before they have a child, so they are fast-tracking their wedding to become parents as soon as possible. “Bryan is 37, so he wants to get the ball rolling,” says the source, adding that Rachel has had “baby fever” ever since her sister gave birth to a second child in May.

“She also loves being an aunt to her three-year-old nephew, Alistair. She loves spending time with him and shopping for baby clothes and toys,” continues the source, who says the Dallas-based attorney plans on having a big brood with Bryan. “Rachel has her mind set on having four kids. She wants an even mix of girls and boys.”
According to the insider, Rach has also put together a list of her favorite baby names, which includes Kennedy, Ashton, Brooklyn, and her dad’s name, Sam, for a son. “Rachel’s always said she wanted to carry on her father’s legacy,” explains the source. “But she likes unique names for girls.”
While Rachel can’t wait to become Bryan’s wife, she is even more excited to meet their future bundles of joy. “Rachel has always wanted to be a mom,” the insider says. “She loves children and will do whatever she can to have them.”
