Another country cutie! Lauren Bushnell LaneHer husband, Chris LaneOn Sunday, October 16, 2016, they welcomed their second child together.

Lauren, 32, posted an emotional video on Instagram Tuesday, October 18, announcing the birth of their baby boy. The video shows Chris, 32, holding Dutton, their 16-month old son, while he meets his little brother. The toddler giggles while his dad holds him as he places him on the hospital’s bed. Lauren can then cuddle both the newborn baby and her son simultaneously.

The Bachelor Season 20 winner announced in June that she was expanding her family with her spouse.

“Party of 4, coming October 2022,” Bushnell Lane wrote via Instagram at the time. “I cannot wait to see you as a big brother, Dutty!”

The Washington native and the “Big, Big Plans” crooner previously welcomed son Dutton in June 2021. “Your dad and I can’t get enough of all 9 pounds of you, Bushnell Lane gushed via Instagram at the time. “Now back to baby cuddles and praising Jesus over and over again for this little miracle!! 🙏

As the former flight attendant and Lane — who tied the knot in October 2019 — balanced raising Dutton and her pregnancy amid his summer tour schedule, they remained excited about their growing brood.


“It really is crazy [that baby No. 2 is due on our third wedding anniversary],” the “I Don’t Know About You” musician exclusively told Us Weekly in August of their little one’s October 25 due date. “[As] long as baby’s healthy then we will be happy no matter what day. … I just hope it’s not on Halloween. I don’t know if I want to Halloween baby.”

Lane added: “[Parenting]It is a lot. We can barely handle the one that we’ve gotten now. He’s a maniac — in the best way. We’re tired now. I can’t imagine how tired we’re going to be with two of them on our hands.”

Bushnell Lane was diagnosed with marginal Cord Insertion during her second pregnancy. This occurs when the umbilical chord attaches to the edge instead of the middle of the placenta.

“The first 13 weeks-ish [of my pregnancy]These were much worse than the first time. I just feel like I was way sicker, I threw up a lot more often, hence the hospital visit,” she explained via her Instagram Story in June, shortly after announcing she was expecting. “Thankfully, now I am feeling so much better. I recently had marginal cord insertion. I was incredibly stressed out when my doctor told me that but I’m trying to stay optimistic.”

While the Ben & Lauren: Happily Ever After? alum noted at the time that her condition was not uncommon, she needed to be closely monitored by her physician.

“She’s doing good,” Lane added to UseAugust “Definitely a lot sicker this time around than she was the first time, but she’s handling it great.”
