Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham are trading in their roses for burp cloths and diapers.

The 37-year-old former Bachelor and his 26-year-old fiancee revealed via Us Weekly that they’re expecting their first child together, and somewhere Chris Harrison is cheering.

Burnham explained her surprise at learning she was pregnant, saying she had a feeling but was unsure until she took a pregnancy test. Nervous, she asked her husband-to-be to read the results.

“Arie came out with the test in his hand and tears in his eyes,” she recalled. “He was like, ‘You’re pregnant!’”

Then, like any couple, they bought six more tests (they were all positive) and they started planning for their future together as a family of three. But first, there’s something else to check off their list: their scheduled January wedding.

“The first thing we thought was, ‘Oh, my gosh. Our wedding!’ Obviously we’re not married yet, but this is the way it happened,” Burnham explained. She added, “And this is probably the way it was meant to happen!”

She went on to share that her first trimester was tough (tougher than getting dumped on live TV like Becca Kufrin?) and October was especially “miserable.” Over the last week, the mom-to-be says she’s started feeling better and is grateful that Luyendyk Jr. has been doing the housework.

So are these two ready for parenthood? Um, maybe. When predicting their parenting styles, Burnham guessed her fiance will be a “softie” and she will be “a little bit more of the disciplinarian.” How does she know? “We’re kind of basing it off how we parent our dogs!” she said.

Godspeed, you two.
