Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham are bringing some light into their family.

Four days after welcoming their twins, The Bachelor stars posted a vlog that showed them leaving the hospital and coming home to their 2-year-old daughter Alessi. Arie, 39, and Lauren, 29, introduced their eldest to their newborn son, revealing his name is Lux.

"Alessi is warming up to Mr. Lux," the race car driver said in the video on Wednesday, June 16. "You're such a good big sister already." He also told her, "You're so good with him."

However, their baby daughter, whose name is still under wraps, had to remain behind at the NICU, which Arie said made Lauren "pretty upset, obviously."

"They don't really know if she'll come home tomorrow or the next day or if she needs any more time," he said on camera.

As Arie explained, "She's having some trouble with her breathing. She's not on oxygen. She's perfectly healthy. Her development's just a little bit behind, so she gets really relaxed. Her heart rate slows down because of the breathing slowing and that is concerning."

He added, "They're just being extra, extra careful, which I appreciate but still a little bit heartbreaking."

After shedding some tears, Lauren teased that she's going to be a "psycho mom" now, as she checked Lux's breathing in their car on the way home from the hospital. 

On Tuesday, June 15, Lauren asked for support as she left her little girl in the NICU. "We get to leave the hospital...but little sis has to stay behind for now," she posted. "pls say prayers for our girl."


Arie and Lauren, who tied the knot in Hawaii in 2019, filmed more footage of Alessi cradling Lux in his finished nursery at home, which seemed to disprove their worries that she would be "jealous" of the twins.

"Really cute to see Alessi and Lux, also really sad for Lauren 'cause she's having a tough time," the dad concluded in the video.
