On the Instagram account made for the two babies on the way, Luyendyk Jr. wrote about pulling off the big day.
"29 weeks! Today we spent the day celebrating you two 😇 I was so happy to surprise Mom with a baby shower and she had no idea!" he wrote. "This past week was a tough one for her so I thought this would be the best way to put a smile on her face. You have so many people out here that already love you so much and can't wait to meet you! So this week I got to finally see your little faces and you two look so dang cute.
"I have to say I see a lot of your big sister in those pictures but trust me she's cute so that's a good thing," he added. "Also baby girl you are facing down now so we are crossing our fingers your brother will flip too! That's all for now but keep growing and we'll hopefully see you in 9 weeks! Love you, Dad."
The couple — who met on the 22nd season of The Bachelor and got married in January 2019 — announced their pregnancy news in December after revealing in May 2020 that she suffered a miscarriage. They are expecting their twins in June.
They cheered in a January YouTube video in which they found out the sexes of their twins, a boy and a girl. "I'm so relieved that there's at least one boy in there," Luyendyk Jr. joked at the time. "Oh my gosh, that's so cool."
Burnham said, "We're so lucky, and I'm just really grateful. And now we're having a boy and a girl. We're just so lucky and I don't know why."
