Krystal Nielson and Miles Bowels’ story: from The Bachelor to now

Krystal announced she was pregnant just months after breaking it off with her Bachelor In Paradise husband, Chris Randone. The two were married for less than a year before divorcing. It seemed that the reasoning was because the couple had infertility issues.

Although Nielson confided that it was scary to be pregnant so quickly after her divorce, the new couple has put down roots at her California beach home.

Now that baby Andara has been born, both Krystal and Miles are happier than ever, and they continue to share updates as new parents.

Bachelor In Paradise is currently on hiatus.
