Pregnant Lauren Bushnell Opens Up About Her Path to Conceiving: 'It Was Emotional'
Lauren Bushnell — who is expecting a baby boy with husband Chris Lane — opened up about her path to conceiving during a Thursday Q&A on her Instagram Story.
In response to a fan who asked if she had a tough time getting pregnant, the “Bachelor” Season 20 alum replied, “Not difficult. It took us about 6-7 months of ‘trying’ and 3 months of taking ovulation tests and using [Proov Test] strips.”
The mom-to-be went on to say that the experience of trying for a baby with her country singer hubby was “emotional in some ways.”
“[It] only opened my heart to those who try for a lot longer and are struggling,” she continued. “7 months felt long at times and had its ups and downs so I just wanna say if your journey is different than mine and you’re [trying to conceive] and struggling my heart goes out to you.”
Lauren’s admissions come just weeks after revealing that she and Chris have already chosen a name for their son, who is due around “the beginning of June.”
“I feel like I could be the type that changes my mind once we meet him but for now yes. Will share eventually but want to make sure that’s actually the name!” Lauren wrote in a February 16 Instagram Story post.
Lauren — who announced her pregnancy in December — also shared that she has a name selected for a baby girl should she and Chris add a daughter to their brood one day. “I have one name I’ve known I’ll use for a few years,” she wrote. “Chris comes from a family of all boys so v unsure if we will ever have a girl.”
Elsewhere, Lauren divulged what makes her “most excited” and “most nervous” about welcoming her son. “Excited to meet him and hold him,” she gushed. “Excited to see Chris as a dad. Nervous for everything but most nervous about making sure he’s safe every second of the day.”
