Baby No. 2 Already?
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!

Spreek je Nederlands?
Another user inquired about the possibility of their baby girl being “bilingual.” Arie was born in the Netherlands and speaks Dutch fluently. It sounds like soon his whole family will!

“I plan to learn Dutch with our baby,” the reality starlet divulged. That’s going to be one smart kiddo!

All in Stride
“Um, I’ve gained give or take 50 [pounds] as of right now,” Lauren confessed. She’s known to be a bit of a gym rat so we’re sure she’ll bounce right back.

Ready for the Next Chapter
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.”

Although Arie wasn’t in the running for names, the Bachelor Nation pair revealed that they do have a name picked out.

“It was a name we kind of tweaked into something unique,” Lauren divulged to the outlet. Welp, that doesn’t really help narrow it down.

One of a Kind
She added, “We don’t really know anybody who’s named that.” Hmmm … well played, guys.

The parents wrote a poem that contained a clue about Baby Luyendyk’s name. Fans are convinced it will rhyme with “me.” Top contenders include Penelope, Brie and Indy.

Bump in the Road
“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.”

She went on to explain that she was hoping to have a drug-free birth but that’s not an option if she had to undergo a C-section.

If She Has To, She Has To
That’s not to say she’s against C-sections (some women don’t really have a choice if it’s an emergency), she’s just not personally a fan of the way painkillers affect her.

She added, “I didn’t really want to be on any kind of drugs that would alter my state of mind. So I’m a little upset about that.”

It all Turned Out A-OK
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.
