Lauren Bushnell and Chris Lane’s Whirlwind Romance: From First Dates to Wedding to Babies

Three years after Bachelor viewers watched Lauren Bushnell Lane get engaged on national television, the former flight attendant confirmed that she was set to be married again — and this time, she headed to the altar with country singer Chris Lane. Bushnell Lane shared the happy news on Instagram on June 18, 2019, as she praised her future husband. “I can’t stop smiling 😭,” she wrote. “I feel so incredibly blessed that every misstep, mistake and heartache has led me to you. I couldn’t be happier to call you mine, forever. The journey was well worth it. Thank you Christopher Eric Lane for softening my heart and making it whole. Never going to stop telling you how much I love you and I will hold onto you forever and ever! Lauren Lane has a nice ring to it 💍.” She told fans: “PS he wrote me a song 😭. I can’t stop listening or looking down at my hand 😍.” The pair married in Nashville in October 2019, after less than a year together. The Oregon native was previously engaged to Bachelor season 20 star Ben Higgins, whose proposal to her was telecast in the season’s March 2016 finale. Higgins and Bushnell Lane then starred in the spinoff show Ben and Lauren: Happily Ever After? before ending their engagement in May 2017. That July, Bushnell Lane started dating Devin Antin, but she and the real estate investor split in August 2018. Four months before calling it quits, she watched Lane perform at Stagecoach and even went backstage to hang out with him. She was attending the music festival with Antin, but he was not backstage during Bushnell’s meet-and-greet with her future husband. All those romantic ups and downs are history, though, now that she and the “I Don’t Know About You” crooner have tied the knot and started a family. Bushnell Lane welcomed her and Lane's first child, son Dutton, in June 2021. One year later, the couple announced they are expecting baby No. 2. Their second son, Baker, was born in October 2022.
