Bachelor Ben Higgins Teases Fans About Starting A Family, Says Fiancee Lauren Bushnell Is 'Practicing Parentin

Mommy to-be? Lauren Bushnell and Bachelor Ben Higgins just went public with their engagement in The Bachelor finale earlier this week, but they’re already hinting at becoming parents.
On Thursday, Higgins posted a photo to Instagram of his fiancée holding up a doll from The Lion King musical, with the caption, “My girl practicing parenting @thelionking.”

Higgins previously revealed that he actually proposed in November, so the couple has had time to be together, albeit in hiding. The Bachelor popped the question a second time during the After the Final Rose show on Monday night with that insane 4.25 carat, $100,000 Neil Lane ring on display.
Even though they have spent a lot of secret time together, Bushnell shared a photo from their first public date on Wednesday night, writing, “FIRST DATE many more to come.”

As for a baby Higgins, the couple recently dished to ET about their plans for a family.
“That was something we talked about early on when we met,” Bushnell told ET. “I want three kids, two, three. But we definitely both want a family. I don’t know how soon that’s going to take place, because we also want to enjoy life together.”
“But it’s nothing we’re scared of,” Higgins added.
For now, they’re focused on getting married with neither one ruling out the possibility of a televised wedding.
“At the end of the day, we just want to get married and have a wedding with our family and friends there and celebrate,” Bushnell told ET.
