It’ll be a girl!

Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham have revealed the sex of their unborn baby.

The Bachelor star, 37, shared the couple’s big news on Instagram Friday afternoon.

Posting a photo of himself beaming and his bride-to-be blowing pink petals, the racecar driver wrote, “IT’S A GIRL.”

The pair is ecstatic that they will be welcoming a little lady into their home — especially as they initially thought they were having a boy!

“I think, to be honest, in the beginning, we were both hoping that we were having a girl,” Burnham, 27, told Us Weekly.

“We actually did the early gender test online, so we took our test at 10 weeks,” Burnham told the outlet. “We got the results back from that, and it was that we were having a boy.”

The doctor then encouraged the engaged couple to get an ultrasound five weeks later and that’s when they found out they were actually having a girl.

This is the couple’s first child together.

The couple, of course, fell in love in front of the camera and now they plan to also share their pregnancy journey with the world.

Fans of the couple will get an intimate look at Burnham’s pregnancy as the couple filmed a special for The Bachelor.
