The host of long-running ABC dating competition ‘The Bachelor’ shares that he gives the couple a few names to be considered, and they are all amazing.
It’s still months before Arie Luyendyk Jr. and his fiancee Lauren Burnham welcome their first bundle of joy. “The Bachelor” couple previously talked about possible names for their baby as they ruled out some names, but it turns out that Chris Harrison is giving us a few names to be added to their list.
The host of the long-running ABC dating competition teased to Entertainment Tonight the names during his appearance at KIIS FM’s iHeart Radio Jingle Ball, presented by Capital One, in Los Angeles on Friday, November 30. He shared that he gave the couple a few names to be considered, and they are all amazing.
“I can’t confirm this, but I heard the name is either Christina or Christopher,” he joked. “After me.” He also added, “I told them Harrison would be OK too.”
Panicking over the possibility people will take it seriously, the host quickly clarified, “I’m making this up. This is not breaking news!”
While Arie and Lauren keep their baby name under wraps, fans know it won’t be Arie or any plays-off of Arie.”No Arie or Ariel or Aria. No plays off of Arie,” the 37-year-old former race car driver previously shared. “We wouldn’t do that to the little one.”
“It’s kind of like Tinder for baby names. So it’ll just pop up a name with your last name and you can swipe yes or no on it,” Lauren explained. “I think I have, like, 600 no names on there. So I spend a lot of time looking at baby names because I just want to get it nailed down, but we’re still not quite there yet.”
Arie and Lauren, who met each other in season 22 of “The Bachelor”, announced that they’re expecting their first child together back in November. Arie couldn’t hide his excitement over the first time they learned about it. The former race car driver spilled that Lauren took a total of seven pregnancy tests to make sure. “We weren’t trying, but we are so excited,” he gushed. “It’s going to be a whole new chapter in our lives.”
The two recently held lavish co-bachelor/bachelorette party over the weekend in Las Vegas. The reality TV stars were joined by friends for the bash before they finally tie the knot in January next year.
