Arie Luyendyk Jr. is celebrating the smooth ride that he and Lauren Burnham have established after two years of married bliss. 

The former Bachelor took to Instagram on Tuesday, Jan. 13 to share a dressed-up photo of the couple and praise his pregnant wife on their second anniversary.

The pair, who fell in love on his turbulent season of the ABC romance show that aired in 2018, announced on Dec. 21 that they are expecting twins in 2021. They welcomed daughter Alessi in May 2019.

"Today is our 2 year anniversary!" the race car driver wrote. "I joked last week that I feel we have been together longer but that's a good thing right? I love our little family.. Coffee in the morning before Alessi wakes up, walks around our backyard, planning dates at our house because of this wild year we have had."

Arie shared that despite the difficult year that we've all had, he feels "more connected and more in love" with his wife than ever before.

"It's funny if you think of where we were at a year ago, finally figuring out how to be new parents," he continued. "Now a year later we have it all figured out (seemingly) but at the same time have no idea what's coming haha. I love that we always tackle things head on and come out stronger for it, I can't wait for what this next year holds for us. I'm so grateful we found each other and even more grateful to share in this incredible life we are creating together."

Arie and Lauren famously endured a bumpy road before ending up together. He proposed to Becca Kufrin on his finale of The Bachelor before breaking her heart shortly thereafter and rekindling things with Lauren.

Luckily, the married lovebirds seem to have put any thorns way behind them.
