Martinez opened up to PureWow about the pregnancy, revealing she found out she was expecting just three months into their seven-month relationship. “I was in disbelief and thought, 'Is this really happening?' I immediately called Grayston and then went across the street to the Dollar Tree and bought two more pregnancy tests. They, of course, were both positive.”
The 23-year-old “Bachelor” alum is about 20 weeks along, and expecting the baby in January.
She also shared the news on YouTube, revealing, “When I saw the positive it was just pure shock. May hands were shaking."
Now, she's excited, saying, “I've just come to such a point of accepting it and embracing it and being excited and telling people and all that.”
Leonard added, “As it's gone further, almost every day becomes happier for me. She's got a little bump now. Her belly button's starting to push out. It's like all of these things make it really fun and real. It's this transforming moment from 'if I have to, I'll do it' to 'I'll be a good dad.'”
The couple has been through a lot in a short time. Leonard put it this way: “We are going to have a kid before we've been dating for a year.”
In fact, they might actually be married. Last week, Grayston and Bekah shared what could be wedding photos on Instagram. In one caption, Leonard joked, "After 48 hours of marriage, I am foregoing a life with Rebekah for an annulment. she's not happy about it."
Martinez will continue sharing her pregnancy journey on the YouTube show “Being Bekah,” which launches in fall 2018.
