Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham 'Excited' to Welcome Daughter Soon, Tease Her 'Unique' Name
"We don't really know anybody who's named that," Lauren Burnham told Entertainment Tonight of the moniker she and Arie Luyendyk Jr. chose for their baby
“We’re really, really excited to meet her. It’s been a long time coming,” Burnham, 26, told the outlet. “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?” Luyendyk chimed in. “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 an awesome ride so far. I can’t wait for her to come.”
The couple chose their daughter’s name this past Christmas, but they’re keeping their lips sealed until her arrival. Teased Burnham to ET, “It was a name we kind of tweaked into something unique. We don’t really know anybody who’s named that.”

Back in November, the couple shared the names they definitely wouldn’t choose for their new baby girl.
“We have quite a list of names, yeah,” Burnham said as Luyendyk shared, “There’s this [naming] app that you can swipe left or right, a lot like Tinder.”
The mother-to-be added jokingly, “I’m at almost 600 nos … No Arie Jr. Jr.” — and though the couple already knew the sex of their baby, the father-to-be emphasized, “If it’s a boy, no Jr. Jr. And [if it’s a girl], no Ariel.”

On his season of The Bachelor, Luyendyk popped the question to Becca Kufrin before realizing that runner-up Burnham was the one for him. After calling it quits with Kufrin, 29, he proposed to Burnham on the After the Final Rose special in March 2018.
“It was an amazing day. Arie and Lauren wrote their own vows and both of them got choked up,” a source told PEOPLE of the celebration.
