Lauren Bushnell’s Baby Bump album, pregnant, before her second child
Second round! Lauren Bushnell Lane prepares to welcome her second child with her husband Chris Lane – and she takes her fans with her.
The couple, who wed in October 2019, announced on June 6 that she was pregnant with baby #2.
“Party of 4, coming October 2022,” Bushnell Lane wrote in a family photo. “Can’t wait to see you as a big brother, Dutty!”
The duo previously welcomed son Dutton in June 2021. Shortly after his son’s first birthday, the former Ben & Lauren: Happily Ever After? The star revealed that her baby bump appeared before her first pregnancy.
“I don’t remember showing that much at 21 weeks with Dutton. Such a grateful baby is growing up, but lord it could be a 10 pound baby,” the Bachelor season 20 winner wrote in June via Instagram Stories. “Dutton was 9 years old and I also gained a lot more weight this time around. (Dutton, I gained over 40 lbs.) So crazy how different every pregnancy is.
Bushnell Lane was also diagnosed with a marginal cord insertion – which she described as “the umbilical cord attaches to the edge of the placenta relative to the middle” – during her second pregnancy.
“The first 13-ish weeks [of my pregnancy] were much worse this time around. I just feel like I’m a lot sicker, I’ve been throwing up a lot more often, hence the hospital visit,” she shared on June 8. “Fortunately, now I feel so much better. I was recently diagnosed with what is called a marginal cord insertion. I was incredibly stressed when my doctor told me this, but I’m trying to stay optimistic. …So the concern is that when [the umbilical cord] attaches to the rim, especially later in pregnancy, this can sometimes prevent the baby from getting all the nutrients it needs, so it just needs extra monitoring.
Lane, for his part, said We Weekly that the couple are hoping for a baby girl.
“I think if we have a girl…we obviously want what the good Lord wants for us, but at the end of the day, I think it will be easier to stop at two, if it’s a girl. “, said the singer. We. “If it ends up being a boy, I guess we’ll try to get a third.”
The “Big, Big Plans” crooner knows that Dutton will be a good big brother too.
“I can’t wait to see her reaction when baby #2 comes home,” he said. “They are going to be pretty close in age. And I hear when they get to 2 years old, it’s a little easier because they can just play a lot with each other. So we’ll see.
