That was fast! Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell are wasting no time when it comes to expanding their family. The ‘Bachelor’ star and his fiancée teased fans with an epic photo that showed them ‘practicing parenting.’ Click to see!
Bachelor alum Ben Higgins, 27, joked on March 17 about his fiancée, Lauren Bushnell, 25, getting prepared for a wedding AND parenthood. The two lovebirds enjoyed a fun outing at Broadway’s The Lion King show and snapped a pic of Lauren tapping into her motherly instincts.
Ben posted the funniest photo of his girl in order to tease fans that they’re “practicing” for parenthood. In the snap, Lauren is holding up a prop baby Simba in the exact way Rafiki in The Lion King. He captioned the photo, “My girl practicing parenting @thelionking.” So funny. We have a feeling it won’t be long before these two expand their own pack. We love seeing Ben so happy with his bride-to-be on their press tour. Prior to the post, the pair admitted that they didn’t want a long engagement and want kids sooner rather than later. “We laughed about this the other day. I think, what did we say, three kids?” Ben told GMA. “I really want three, yeah. So, you agreed, right?” Lauren replied. But, Ben didn’t put up a fight and said, “I did agree, just to be safe.”
“That’s an opportunity we’d have to look into,” Ben told E! News about having their nuptials televised. “We are returning to the stage of life now where we can be public as an engaged couple. And now whatever opportunities come up and whatever conversations happen, we’ll listen. If it’s something that seems to be best for us and also for the people who have now watched our love story for the last couple of months then great. If not, we’ll definitely celebrate privately with friends and family still.”
“I would love to set a date and start the planning and start getting excited about that,” Lauren revealed, and Ben even has a timeline in mind for when they want to become husband and wife. “We talked this morning on the plane, I would love to do 2016, early 2017,” he says. “I don’t want to rush is to the point where it’s stressful, but I also don’t want to wait too long.” How sweet!
