Gird your ovaries.
Seriously, it's ovary overload this morning as we have our first look at Ben Higgins as the Bachelor...and he's holding a baby. We repeat: Ben is holding a baby. And to answer your question: No, one of his admirers did NOT bring her child to meet the Bach on the first night.
Filming for the 21st season of The Bachelor kicked off on Thursday night, with series creator Mike Fleiss gifting Bachelor Nation with a photo of the 27-year-old software salesman in his suit and tie. Oh, and he had the cutest accessory: Ben, Fleiss' infant son.
"The Bens on night one!!!" Fleiss captioned the too-cute-for-words pic. (Hm...could that also be a cheeky tease for fans who wanted Ben Zorn as the Bachelor, too?!)
