The Bachelor's Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham just expanded their family by two. 

The couple, who fell in love on the ABC dating show in 2018, announced the news that Lauren had given birth to the pair's twins on Saturday, June 12.

"@luyendyktwins are here!" Arie shared to his Instagram Story. "Momma and babies doing great and everything went smoothly. Spending time cherishing these moments, thank you all for the support." 

Arie and Lauren are also parents to their 2-year-old daughter Alessi, who they welcomed in May 2019. Last December, the duo, who said "I do" in Hawaii three years ago, shared that they were expecting not one, but two babies.

A month later, they revealed they were expecting a boy and a girl

"I'm so relieved that there's at least one boy in there," Arie joked in a YouTube video after Lauren pointed out that he would be severely outnumbered if she was carrying two girls. "Oh my gosh, that's so cool."

Arie and Lauren's baby news comes less than a year after they announced Lauren had experienced a miscarriage with their second child. In an emotional Instagram post, Lauren wrote about what it was like to be pregnant again.

"This time around has been different to say the least," the 29-year-old reality TV personality shared. "The darkness that surrounds a loss is something not easily forgotten. The months of mourning, the months of hoping, to now, moments of worry. Even in the midst of something as beautiful as new life, that darkness finds its way in to remind me that it did in fact exist. It's tarnished the blissful ignorance i gleefully experienced the first time around."

She continued, "With all of that said, i'm proud of this body and what we've endured together. i'm proud of my second & third babies for growing so well and grateful for all the reminders they send me saying, 'mom, we're okay'. i'm proud of my journey through the darkness, because without that, the light i see now wouldn't shine quite so bright."

To celebrate Mother's Day on May 9, Lauren shared a sweet photo of herself and Alessi to Instagram along with the caption, "blessed today & everyday to be mama to these babies. to those of you having a hard time today, i'm thinking of you & sending so much love."
