“I kind of had a feeling that I might be pregnant. So my friend insisted on bringing a pregnancy test over,” Burnham, said. “Arie came out with the test in his hand and tears in his eyes. He was like, ‘You’re pregnant!’”
The couple drove to a store and purchased six more pregnancy tests to confirm the happy news.
“Lauren took all of them and they were all positive,” he said, adding that the pregnancy was not planned. “We weren’t trying, but we are so excited. It’s going to be a whole new chapter in our lives.”
The pregnancy has not been easy for Burnham, a real estate agent. “October was miserable. I had really bad morning sickness and barely left the house,” she said. “But over the last week I’ve started feeling a lot better, so it’s nice to have my energy back.”
She also mentioned that she hired a trainer to help her work out safely during the pregnancy. “When I wasn’t feeling that great, I was trying to go on a lot of walks. But now I do cycling a few times a week!” The two bought a home together in Phoenix, Arizona, where they shot their pregnancy announcement photos, which you can see here.
