Now that Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham are adjusting to life with their new daughter, Alessi, the 27-year-old mom is opening up about the possibility of baby number two.
In a recent interview with Us Weekly, Burnham discussed motherhood and admitted that she’s already looking forward to expanding their clan. “It’s definitely a difficult time to even think about having another baby, but we love her so much that we absolutely want to have another sibling for her soon,” she said.
Burnham went on to clarify that when she says “soon,” she means in another year or so. “Well, not soon, but we’re thinking maybe like when she’s two,” she added. “We kind of want them spread out a little bit.”
The Bachelor alum also revealed why she’s hesitant about bringing another baby into their home, saying, “I just feel bad bringing another baby into the house before that because I want to spend time with her. We want her to be able to talk and understand what we’re saying first.”
When asked about how many children she and Luyendyk Jr. plan on having, Burnham said “around three.”
Luyendyk Jr. and Burnham met on season 22 of The Bachelor. Although he originally proposed to Becca Kufrin, he later called off the engagement and pursued his runner-up, Burnham. The rest, as they say, is history.
We have no doubt that Uncle Chris Harrison is beaming with delight.
