Buckle up Bachelor Nation, because there's a new baby on board. Love him or hate him, Arie Luyendyk Jr. is going to become a father next year, because his fiancé Lauren Burnham is pregnant.

The somewhat controversial couple announced the news in this week's edition of Us Weekly, where Burnham admitted that she made Luyendyk Jr. read out the pregnancy test results first.

“I kind of had a feeling that I might be pregnant. So my friend insisted on bringing a pregnancy test over,” Burnham said. “Arie came out with the test in his hand and tears in his eyes. He was like, ‘You’re pregnant!’”

The baby news comes just a month and a half before Burnham and Luyendyk Jr. are set to tie the knot in Hawaii, but as of right now, that plan hasn't changed. While the couple is on the path to getting their fairytale ending, it hasn't been the smoothest road (even Becca drama aside).

“October was miserable. I had really bad morning sickness and barely left the house,” Burnham said. “But over the last week I’ve started feeling a lot better, so it’s nice to have my energy back.”
