Season 22 had a plot twist from the usual Bachelor finale story line. After telling Lauren Burnham that he loved her, Arie Luyendyk Jr. went on to propose to Becca Kufrin. You’re probably saying “oh that’s totally normal”. And yes, you’re right. The plot twist happened when Arie then broke it off with Becca after just two months and then went forward to propose to Lauren, LIVE on ABC. While getting down on one knee [again], the former Bachelor said “I made some bad decisions but the best decision was running back to you. I truly believe you are my soulmate. I’m ready to face this life with you and all that comes with it. I love you so much. I wanted to do this in front of everyone because I want to show you that I should have done this a long time ago.” Woah.
The couple wed in January 2019 in Maui after learning the exciting news of a baby entering their lives. Their first child was born on May 29th. They announced “We have a healthy, BEAUTIFUL baby girl 6lbs. 13oz 20cm long.”
And already moving at a fast pace, their relationship kept going.
