Juelia Kinney Purchases Southern California Home: 'Beyond Lucky and Blessed'
Home, sweet home! Juelia Kinney took to Instagram on Thursday to share the exciting news that she purchased a home in Encinitas, California.
“If it wasn’t difficult enough to have a newborn during the [coronavirus] pandemic, we thought why not throw on packing, moving and buying a house into the mix,” wrote the “Bachelor” Season 19 alum, who shares son Van Hayes with fiancé Aaron Bass.
“WE ARE OFFICIALLY HOMEOWNERS!!!” she added in her caption, which was accompanied by a shot of her new house. “We feel beyond lucky and blessed to have this precious baby, our health and now a house for our kids to grow and for us to build memories as a family.”

Juelia and Aaron — the brother of Bachelor Nation star Evan Bass — welcomed baby Van on December 30.
“We’re so thankful for this precious gift, to say we are in love is a severe understatement. I didn’t know my heart could be this full. Little buddy, thank you for choosing us to be your parents, we promise we will love you always,” Juelia wrote at the time via social media.
Meanwhile, Aaron shared a sweet message dedicated to his wife and their latest addition. (Aaron has two sons without Juelia, while the mom of two has a 7-year-old daughter, Ireland, from a previous marriage.)
“Everyone meet our little buddy, Van Hayes Bass. He was born this morning, December 30th, at 1:10am, after what feels like the longest year of our lives,” Aaron wrote in part on Instagram. “Juels was an absolute badass as always, and we couldn’t be more grateful for how it all went down. Van was a full moon baby, and though I don’t actually know what that means, I thought it sounded spiritual and unique and I wanted to let you know.”
Juelia and Aaron got engaged in July 2018. They were scheduled to wed June 5, but COVID-19 forced them to change those plans. Instead, the pair decided to travel to Arizona and “have a pretend wedding” in the backyard of their Airbnb.
