Lauren Bushnell and Chris Lane have welcomed their first child together, a son, this week.
Last year, Lauren opened up about her desire to start a family. Then, in December, Chris and Lauren announced they were expecting.
Lauren documented her pregnancy on social media. The reality TV star even encouraged women not to compare their pregnancies to other women, telling her fans that there’s no one size fits all for pregnancy. Each woman’s journey is different.
Now, the proud parents are happily showing off their bundle of joy. Lauren and Chris are opening up about their baby boy and their forte into parenthood just days after their son was born.
Lauren and Chris welcome a son
The Bachelor alum and country singer both used Instagram to reveal their son made his grand arrival. Lauren shared photos of both her and Chris with their precious angel.
“Dutton Walker Lane born June 8th, 2021. Your dad and I can’t get enough of all 9 pounds of you. Now back to baby cuddles and praising Jesus over and over again for this little miracle,” Lauren captioned her Instagram post.
Following his wife’s lead, Chris shared a video of him holding baby Dutton for the first time.
“Words can’t describe the love I feel inside my heart for this little man! Thanks for all the prayers. I will never understand how @laurenlane birthed a 9-pound baby! DUTTON WALKER LANE welcome to the world,” Chris wrote on the post.
Lauren’s post announcing the news was overcome with well-wishes, congratulations, and heartfelt messages from Bachelor Nation.
Ashley Iaconetti, Jade Roper Tolbert, and her husband Tanner Tolbert immediately popped up in the comment section.
Trista Sutter and Lauren Burnham Luyendyk also replied to the post. In addition, Olympian Shawn Johnson Eas and actress Jennifer Love Hewitt, who are both pregnant, commented on the announcement too.
