Baby Luyendyk III? Probably not! Pregnant Lauren Burnham dished that their baby girl and any other future kids the couple may have will not be named after former Bachelor star Arie Luyendyk Jr. The reality pair’s first child will be arriving in less than a month and the parents-to-be are beyond excited (and getting a bit impatient). The reality starlet answered fans questions during an Instagram Q&A on Wednesday, May 15, and revealed some surprising things. Keep scrolling to see all the baby details!
One fan asked a hypothetical question that could be relevant if the reality duo decides to have more kids in the future. “If your baby was a boy would he have been named Arie as well?” they asked the blonde beauty, 27.
“He’d be lucky to be named after this cutie,” Lauren began her response with a picture of Arie’s back. “But, no. We want our babies to have names all their own.” One Arie, 37, is enough for Chris Harrison to handle!
The mom-to-be revealed that she’s definitely getting impatient waiting for their daughter to arrive. “We’re really, really excited to meet her. It’s been a long time coming,” she told ET in April. “I’ve been pregnant for seven-ish months, so it’s about time to get my body back and to meet our baby. We’re really happy.”
“I was very open with you guys about what was going on with the breech situation and, honestly, with the whole pregnancy thing from the beginning, so I just wanted to update you about what’s going on with that,” she explained on her Instagram Story on May 7 after a doctor’s appointment.
She confirmed, “We just went to our 36-week appointment today and the baby is still breech, unfortunately, and the reason I think that’s unfortunate for me is because that wasn’t part of my plan originally.”
Luckily, Lauren had an E.C.V. done (a procedure where doctors attempt to “flip” the baby from the outside) and it worked! Arie documented the experience and was literally “shook” to his core. Their baby is now in the proper birthing position and they’re praying that she’ll stay that way.
