Regardless of how you feel about the Bachelor TV franchise, there's one thing you can't deny: their love has made a lot of babies! As of yesterday, there are now 21 Bachelor babies born to Bachelor & Bachelorette alums.
21st Bachelor Baby Born
Arie Luyendyk Jr. and wife Lauren Luyendyk welcomed their baby girl, Alessi Ren Luyendyk, on Wednesday, May 29, 2019. Baby Alessi marks the 21st Bachelor baby born.
Ironically, Lauren is not who Arie chose in the finale of his Bachelor season. The truth is, very few of the Bachelor parents actually married people they met on their season of the Bachelor or Bachelorette.
How Bachelor Parents Met
Many of them were finalists on their season, but went on to star on their own season of the hit TV show that's been around for almost two decades. (Perhaps they learned what NOT to do on their season).
Others met their spouse after their time on TV at a Bachelor event with other former contestants. And yet others married someone that had nothing to do with the franchise.
There's no sign that the Bachelor Nation baby boom is going to slow down anytime soon (many couple already have two kids). But only time will tell whether marriage and babies are in the cards for this season's Bachelorette!
