The Bachelor Season 22, Arie Luyendyk Jr., and his wife, Lauren Luyendyk, are happily married with one daughter, Alessi Ren. They are very open on social media, often sharing pictures of their daughter. On May 31, 2020, one fan asked a rude question in the comments of Alessi’s first birthday photos, and Lauren did not hesitate to call the person out.
Are ‘Bachelor’ couple, Arie and Lauren, planning to have more children?
Arie and Lauren are one of the few Bachelor relationships that lasted the test of time, so far, among many that did not work out. While Lauren was not Arie’s first choice — he first proposed to Becca Kufrin — the two are still going strong two years later.
The couple was engaged on the After the Final Rose special in 2018 and then married on Jan. 12, 2019. Their first daughter, Alessi, was born on May 29, 2019. However, one year later, they revealed that Lauren recently went through a miscarriage. They shared a touching video of their excitement over their pregnancy, and then their heartbreak when it ended in miscarriage.
“A little over a month ago, we got the most exciting news, and we found out that we were pregnant with our second baby,” Arie and Lauren wrote in the caption of the video. “We were planning to share our journey through pregnancy with you, but unfortunately, we didn’t get the happy story we had hoped for.”
The couple also explained that they bought a new house and many numerous plans when they found out they were expecting baby number two.
What did a ‘Bachelor’ fan say to Lauren that you should never ask a woman?
For Alessi’s first birthday, Arie and Lauren shared numerous photos. On one of the family photos, a fan commented with a question that Lauren could not ignore.
“Congrats to you all; she’s adorable,” the fan began. “I see a little baby bum, are you pregnant again? or is it just me?”
Lauren did not hesitate to respond and let the fan know that the comment was out of line.
“I was, but just miscarried a couple days ago,” Lauren wrote. “Probably not something you should ask other women.”
Other ‘Bachelor’ Fans quickly came to Lauren’s defense
The fan question was followed by about 200 replies, most defending Lauren.
“You’re a star for this response. It’s unbelievable that people don’t still understand to not ask about other people’s reproductive plans and health,” wrote another fan. “I’m sorry for what you’re going through.”
While many fans commented that they also believe no one should ask that question, others sent their condolences to Lauren. A few fans shared their own stories of miscarriage and heartbreak.
“I’m really sorry to hear this,” another Instagram user replied. “It is so hard, miscarrying. I had two before my rainbow baby. Know that you are not alone! Hugs to you and your little family.”
