Though Bushnell and Lane are married, they actually haven’t been together very long. The pair had a pretty quick whirlwind romance. After just a few months of dating, Bushnell moved to a different state to live with Lane and the singer proposed not too long after that. It’s been a little over a year since the couple got engaged and they’ve already been happily married for eight months.

Naturally, since Bushnell and Lane moved so fast, fans are wondering when they’ll take the next step and start a family. In fact, it seems like every time they post a photo together, fans are questioning them about when they might be expecting kids. On June 24, 2020, Bushnell took to her Instagram to answer her fans’ most burning question. The 30-year-old revealed that she and Lane were eager to start a family together and were just waiting patiently for it to happen.

“Husband appreciation post. We got engaged about a year ago and y’all, I don’t know what I did to deserve this man. About to get personal but I am very excited to start a family and get asked when we are having kids ALL the time but it just hasn’t happened yet,” Bushnell began, gushing over her husband.

The Bachelor alum then shared the role that faith has in their life and added that Lane encouraged her to put her trust in God about starting a family. “When I was talking about it with Chris he said ‘Well, have you prayed about it?’ I said ‘Well, yes’ and he responded, ‘Have you really prayed hard about it. If that’s what we really want, pray, and know it will happen in God’s time if it’s what He wants for us!! I’ll pray with you!’ Bushnell recalled about the personal conversation she had with her husband.

I am so lucky I get to wake up next to you every morning, lucky I get to pray next to you and am continually humbled by your heart of gold, 💖” Bushnell shared about Lane.

Naturally, fans and friends alike began to gush over the post. Even some of Bushnell’s fellow Bachelor alums chimed in to tell Bushnell and her husband that they were “goals”. Fans also sent the couple well wishes in their quest to start a family. Hopefully, now that Bushnell has addressed the situation, fans will stop asking her about her plans and just wait for her to make the announcement, whenever that may be.
