Why Lauren Burnham Is 'Nervous' About a Potential C-Section Ahead of Twins' Birth
Lauren Burnham — who is pregnant and expecting twins with husband Arie Luyendyk Jr. — revealed that she is feeling a “little bit nervous” as she approaches her babies’ June due date.
In an interview with Us Weekly published Wednesday, the Bachelor Nation star — who already shares daughter Alessi, 23 months, with Arie — said that the thought of a potential C-section makes her anxious.
“I’m not nervous about the labor part as much, but I haven’t had a C-section before,” Lauren said. “Surgery is kind of scary to me. So I’m nervous about having a C-section because both of my kids are breech. There is a possibility that will happen.”
The Shades of Rose founder shared that she is also nervous about “not getting any sleep at all” once she has to care for two newborns and a toddler.
“I’ve heard twins are especially difficult because you’re not sleeping as much as with a newborn,” she noted. “One will wake up and want to eat, and then they’ll wake the other one up and they’ll want to eat at the same time. I just see that going downhill really fast.”

Despite her worries, Lauren already has a strategy in place. “I’ll wake up and feed one,” the future mom of three said. “After that, I’ll just hand that baby off to Arie, who can change them and get them back to sleep. And then I’ll feed the other one.”
Lauren, who is carrying a boy and a girl, then predicted that she might be able to “breastfeed both of them” even if she “isn’t really sure how that’s going to go.”
Elsewhere in her chat with Us Weekly, the blonde beauty — who announced her pregnancy in December following a devastating miscarriage in May 2020 — explained how Alessi is preparing to be a big sister.
“I took her to her first ultrasound with me this weekend,” Lauren said. “It was fun for her to see that the lady had the ultrasound machine on my stomach, and then she could see the baby on the screen. I think that maybe helped her put two and two together a little bit more. She’s always talking to them, like, ‘Hi, you baby,’ and kissing them. It’s really cute.”
