At 23 weeks pregnant, The Bachelor star Lauren Burnham is seriously missing her bikini body, sharing her feelings with fans in a throwback Instagram post that left little to the imagination. The wife of Arie Luyendyk is pregnant with the couple’s first child, and shared the sultry snap with her 795,000 Instagram followers — who were quick to share their admiration for the reality star’s enviable figure.
In the image, Burnham is walking alongside a swimming pool, laughing as she goes. Her long blonde hair falls in thick, luxurious waves around her face and down her shoulders. She’s barefoot, and the only accessory she has on is a slim gold chain around her neck.
The reality show star put her gym-honed body on display in the shot, flaunting her long toned legs and muscled abs in a skimpy blue bikini — one that showed off plenty of cleavage. Although the date of the image is not clear, it was obviously before Burnham became pregnant — and from the caption, it’s clear she’s missing her long-lost abs.
While she may be bemoaning the loss of her beach body, Burnham is more than thrilled to be welcoming a child alongside her husband. It will be the first child for the couple, who met on the hit show The Bachelor. The mom-to-be has even set up a special Instagram account in preparation for her bundle of joy. And even though there’s still a few months to go before the baby is born, that account already gotten over 194,000 followers — and that count will only rise as the due date draws closer.
Burnham shared a post to the account just a day before her fun and flirty throwback post, showing how far along she is in her pregnancy and updating her followers on the status of baby Luyendyk.
The couple announced their pregnancy back in November of 2018, and although they were originally told they were expecting a bouncing baby boy, they later learned that Burnham is actually pregnant with a little girl. In an interview with Us Weekly, the reality star confessed that she found the final results to be something of a relief, as both she and her husband had been hoping for a daughter — as she has far less experience with boys.
“I was really nervous to be a boy mom because I just don’t know that I can relate as well, being a woman relating to a little boy,” Burnham said to Us Weekly. “I have a little brother, and he’s so sweet and I love him to death, but sometimes I don’t really understand why he acts that way he does. I’m feeling a lot more confident in being able to be a girl mom first!”
The couple’s daughter is due some time in June.

23 weeks! Do you know what that means ya’ll? 6 months old! This week I’m the size of a box of Mac and cheese, whaaaaaat? It’s like I’ve transported straight to being a toddler ????????. So a little update in here... I’m over 11 inches long and weigh over a pound. I can hear loud noises now like when Dallas and Bastian bark at the front door (you know like when that daily amazon package comes). The blood vessels in my lungs are growing and expanding, so that’s fun. Mom and Dad are starting to get the cutest gifts and Mom has been working hard on getting things ordered for my room ????. Tonight Aunt @maquelx is here, so I’m listening to everyone have dinner and play games in the living room! Okay guys I love you and I’ll see you next week! ????????
