As fans know, Bekah Martinez decided not to join Bachelor in Paradise, and now, we also know why. It turns out that while she and Arie Luyendyk did not work out, she’s found the one in the meantime and is now pregnant!
The Bachelor alum has been living with her significant other Grayston Leonard, and they are about to become parents.
Bekah, who is already 20 weeks along, talked to Pure Wow and described her pregnancy as ‘a dream come true.’
‘It’s the one thing that I have known with certainty for so long. I have gone back and forth on the idea of marriage and relationships, but I have always felt sure I want to be a mom.’
The couple has kept the great news private for some time, but they are now ready to share it with the whole world!
The woman explained that she doesn’t regret at all not joining Bachelor in Paradise.
‘I think pregnancy is better than Bachelor in Paradise. Although I am probably equally as sweaty, nauseous, stressed out and emotional, at least I do not have to worry about finding a man. I already have that one covered.’
As for marriage plans, she told the outlet that they are not thinking about that ‘with all the hormones and stress they are under.’
Bekah did say that that the pregnancy has managed to bring the pair closer and tighten their bond.
‘I’m feeling super energized. I have been able to do a lot of activities that I normally do, like hiking, backpacking and a little bit of climbing,’ the 23-year-old shared about finishing her first trimester.
Congratulations Bekah and Grayston!
