While The Bachelor star is thrilled with her new baby, she apparently hadn't been able to fit into her regular clothes yet.
She recently shared an Instagram story with her 967k followers, proudly showing off the fact that she could fit into her pre-pregnancy jeans. When a woman can finally fit into her normal clothes again, it's a big moment, shallow as that may seem.
The Couple Welcomed Their Daughter In May
After welcoming their baby girl in May, Arie made the announcement on Instagram, writing, “Mommy and baby are doing great, we are so incredibly happy.”
The reality television star revealed to Us Weekly after the birth that she struggled quite a bit with breastfeeding, something a lot of women have trouble with.
She told the publication, “It looks so easy, so that’s kind of what I expected going in. But it was definitely not that way. No one told me that if you’re a first-time mom, sometimes your milk doesn’t come in right away. So I had to supplement her with formula and I was really upset about that."
Future Baby Plans?
Lauren also revealed the couple's future baby plans, explaining that they would like more, but they're not in a total rush.
She said, “We’re thinking maybe, like, when she’s 2. We kind of want them to spread out a little bit. I just feel bad bringing another baby into the house before that because I want to spend time with her. We want her to be able to talk and understand what we’re saying first.”
That sounds like a pretty smart way of going about things, as there shouldn't be any rush.
Baby News For More Bachelor Stars
Another star from The Bachelor recently announced her second pregnancy. Bekah Martinez is expecting another child with boyfriend Grayston Leonard, not long after she had her first.
She revealed the pregnancy on Instagram, writing, “12 weeks. I can’t believe how fast this pregnancy is moving. I feel guilty talking about this, but this pregnancy is already night and day compared to our first."
The reality star had only been dating her boyfriend for a few months when she got pregnant with their first child.
Martinez explained how scary that pregnancy was, writing, “I felt embarrassed and ashamed, and I imagined everyone around me whispering about how ‘irresponsible’ we were. Going through such a life-altering shift with someone you barely know is stressful, scary, and often filled with doubt.”
Their first baby, daughter Ruth Ray De La Luz was born in February, and brought the couple closer.
She wrote, “Truly. I know it’s a cliche, but love blossomed so deeply between us the moment she took her first breath. That very night we danced together in the living room while she slept."
It seems there is all kinds of happy news going around in Bachelor Nation lately!
