Former Bachelor star Arie Luyendyk Jr. and his wife, Lauren Burnham, enjoyed a date night this weekend as a couple. Luyendyk took to Instagram on the evening of Friday, July 24, to share a sweet snapshot taken during the outing.
The pair looked extra happy and in love as they sat at an outdoor table and smiled for the camera. Luyendyk wore a collared shirt with a black-and-white speckled design. Meanwhile, Burnham wowed in a spaghetti strap top with lace. The former reality television star wore her long blond hair down in loose waves and appeared to wear some light, natural-looking makeup.
Burnham rested her hand on the white tablecloth in front of her and showed off the impressive new ring she got as a gift from her husband. The ring is a diamond band called a eternity band. It is meant to represent an eternal love of one another, even in the darkest of times.
A glass of rosé wine was visible in front of Luyendyk while Burnham had a glass of white wine. In the caption of the post, Luyendyk noted that this was the first date night they have enjoyed together child-free since March, prior to the quarantine for the COVID-19 pandemic.
The pair share a 1-year-old daughter named Alessi and thus don’t get a lot of alone time anymore. The former Bachelor star concluded his caption by expressing his feelings for his wife.
The post racked up plenty of likes, surpassing 62,000. Many fans of the couple took to the comments section to compliment them on the adorable photo and to share how much they admire them as a duo.
“I’m so glad you made the right choice. It’s hard to listen to our hearts at times, but you certainly did!” wrote one person, referencing Luyendyk’s choice to pursue a relationship with Burnham after the show concluded, despite much controversy.
“You must be treating her right. She looks so happy!” wrote another fan.
“Beautiful picture of you two! Love you both tons and enjoy following your life,” remarked one more person.
The couple have been through some heartbreak in recent months. This past spring, they revealed publicly that they had suffered a miscarriage. The pregnancy was unexpected, yet both parents were excited to give their daughter a sibling, according to The Inquisitr.
The pair still plan to expand their family, even though it will be taking a little longer than they expected.
