Is it a boy or girl for Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham?
The “Bachelor” couple tells Us Weekly they are having a girl!
Lauren explained, “I think, to be honest, in the beginning we were both hoping that we were having a girl.”
At first they thought it was a boy. “We actually did the early gender test online, so we took our test at 10 weeks,” Burnham said. “We got the results back from that, and it was that we were having a boy.”
The doctor suggested they check again with an ultrasound at 15 weeks, and that’s when they found out they were actually having a girl.
Arie was in “shock.” He said, “I was very quiet. The ultrasound tech says, ‘Well. I'm about 98 percent.’ So I still wasn't convinced after the first time we saw it.”
He's sure now. The reality star explained, “We went back to the doctor, went back a few other times, and just went back for our anatomy scan. It’s definitely a girl!”

New year, new me? This week I’m the size of an artichoke. Didn’t make any new year’s resolutions other than the obvious (putting on some lbs). I’m spending some time flexing my arms and legs for the first time. I like to think I’m helping them get in shape for the wedding (here’s looking at you Dad). My ears are where they are supposed to be now and I have been listening to Mozart still. Ever listen to music underwater? Yep that’s what it’s like, I guess it helps with my little brain. I have a busy week planned, Mom and Dad are taking me to get an anatomy scan and then we are headed to Hawaii! Next week I’ll be wearing a grass skirt in here 👋🏻
Meanwhile, Burnham was excited to find out she was having a girl. “I was really nervous to be a boy mom because I just don't know that I can relate as well, being a woman relating to a little boy,” she said. “I have a little brother, and he's so sweet and I love him to death, but sometimes I don't really understand why he acts that way he does. I'm feeling a lot more confident in being able to be a girl mom first!”
Arie and Lauren will tie the knot in Hawaii on Jan. 12.
