Baby Luyendyk is almost here!
Overnight on Tuesday and early Wednesday morning, Bachelor alum Arie Luyendyk Jr. took to Instagram to reveal that he and wife Lauren Burnham were at the hospital awaiting the arrival of their baby girl.
Luyendyk shared a pic of himself and Burnham standing in the hallway at the hospital, with his very pregnant wife wearing a hospital gown, and both of them cradling her stomach.
"IT'S HAPPENING!" Luyendyk, 37, excitedly captioned the pic.
Both Luyendyk and Burnham also documented their hospital experience on their Instagram Stories, with the mom-to-be teasing her husband for taking too long to find a parking spot as he carried their bags inside. The couple seems to be in great spirits, as Burnham hilariously pushed Luyendyk around in a wheelchair in the hallway of the hospital.
Around 1 a.m. on ET, Burnham's contractions were just two minutes apart and, according to Luyendyk, she was "doing great!"
Luyendyk also shared a glowing pic of Burnham holding a cup in the hallway, gushing, "Look at this beautiful mama!"
Both parents-to-be also shared a snap of a grinning Burnham in her hospital bed as Luyendyk kissed her stomach.
Hours later, Luyendyk once again took to his Instagram Story to give an update, revealing that Burnham was given an epidural around 5 a.m. ET.
"She is doing great and everything is going smoothly!" Luyendyk wrote. "We are going to try and catch a little sleep and hopefully we will meet our baby soon."
"It's been a long time coming," Burnham shared. "I've been pregnant for seven-ish months, so it's about time to get my body back and to meet our baby. We're really happy."
"I think it's cool, you know? We're experiencing being new parents, so we're on all the apps, learning about the development of the baby, and it's just been kind of an awesome ride so far," Luyendyk added. "I can't wait for her to come."
