Lauren, 31, and Chris, 36, have officially welcomed their newest addition, a son named —.
The couple shared the news with a series of sweet photos on Instagram, as they enjoyed the exciting day with their family.
The duo has been eagerly preparing for their son’s arrival and has been very open with fans about the process.
On December 7th, 2020 Lauren and Chris announced their first child by uploading an ultrasound video of their growing baby.

The new mother shared the video which played over Chris’s song Big, Big Plans, and captioned her post: “A dream.
“Except I’m not dreaming. I’m wide awake. Holding your dad’s hand, watching you dance around in my belly. Listening to your little heartbeat.
“My new favorite sound. A miracle. New life. Our sweet baby. Thank you Jesus! All the glory belongs to You,” she gushed.
Lauren was a contestant on season 20 of The Bachelor, where she got engaged to frontrunner Ben Higgins.

After settling down in Denver, they were given their own spinoff, Ben and Lauren: Happily Ever After?
However, the couple called in quits in May of 2017, and she began dating Chris less than a year later.
Ben made it clear that there are no hard feelings, as he commented on Lauren’s baby announcement: “Congrats! What a thing to celebrate!”
Chris then hopped in the comments to add his own two cents, as he joked: “Hunni when were you gonna tell me you were pregnant?”

After re-sharing on his own Instagram account, the country singer wrote: “Prayer works! Hope you look like your Mama.”
Despite feeling ecstatic about their little one, Lauren made sure to be kind towards those who haven’t been as lucky with their pregnancies.
“As excited as we are, for me, it was sometimes hard to see posts like this.
“For those on their own journey to getting pregnant, I’m thinking of you. Thank you for all the love,” she wrote on social media at the time.

The TV personality also revealed that she discovered she was with child at three and a half weeks.
The mom of one told People: “I just had a feeling so I took a pregnancy test. There really wasn’t anything physical happening; I just had a funny feeling I was pregnant.
“It was very exciting but now feels even more real seeing the ultrasound and hearing the heartbeat. We are just soaking it all in!”
Lauren and Chris tied the knot in her parent’s backyard in October of 2019, after first meeting at a radio event in 2015.

“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.
