Congratulations to the The Bachelor couple, Arie Luyendyk Jr. and wife Lauren Burnham, who welcomed their first baby, a girl, on Wednesday, May 29.
Arie took to Instagram to share the happy news along with a photo of his new 6lb. 13 oz baby girl, looking at her dad. He also shared his little girl’s name.
“This was first time she laid eyes on me and I’m forever changed ❤️ Alessi Ren Luyendyk,” he wrote.
Lauren also took to Instagram, sharing the first crying photo as her baby rests on her chest.
“Alessi Ren Luyendyk. Born May 29, 2019 @ 2:09pm. 6lbs, 13 oz. 20 inches long. She is sweet, calm and @ariejr and I could not be more in love with her.💗,” she wrote.
Arie and Lauren first met on The Bachelor, when Arie was searching for love amongst 25 women. Lauren was in the final two and Arie chose Becca Kufrin. However, Arie had a change of heart and we watched what could be called the most awkward moment in television history as he broke up with Becca and decided to make a go of it with Lauren.
Lauren, who was still in love with Arie, took him back and the couple have enjoyed life together ever since. They have been open with fans, sharing the purchase of their first house together, to her bridal show, wedding and pregnancy announcement on Instagram.

Congratulations to the happy couple, now a family of three.
