Arie Luyendyk Jr. loves his wife, Lauren Burnham, but he is done having more kids anytime soon.
The Bachelor alum recently dropped into The Ben and Ashley I Almost Famous Podcast, where he told hosts Ben Higgins and Ashley Iaconetti how he plans on getting a vasectomy.
He and wife Lauren Burnham welcomed daughter Alessi in 2019, followed by twins Senna and Lux in June.
“We were in Hawaii, and it was really challenging because Hawaii doesn’t have Postmates,” he began. “They don’t have grocery stores that are open late. Basically, it’s like going back in time 30 years.”
He continued, “So it was hard with the twins because there was less help. Like, right now, if I don’t want to cook dinner, I just order Postmates. There, you have to go to a grocery store, which, for us, was a 20-minute drive. It was, like, very difficult.”
Arie revealed how he and Lauren, 29, have been so appreciative to have the support of his parents in helping to raise their three little ones, and so it was when he was feeling “a little bit overwhelmed” in Hawaii that he decided he wanted to undergo the medical sterilization procedure at some point in the future.
“At that point, we were like, ‘This is it. This is it,'” he continued. “I think we’re so happy because we have our boy, we have the two girls. And I’m already 40, guys. I can’t be having kids any later than this in life. I want to be like an active dad. So, I think three is OK.”
But thankfully, the couple didn’t focus on just food apps….
On Oct. 3, the two posted a video of Arie popping the question to his wife for the second time, after the first proposal that happened place during The Bachelor: After the Final Rose. That episode aired back in 2018.
Arie revealed in the footage how his first engagement ring, which ABC financed, never felt to them like “something I chose for her.” Which ultimately led him to pick out a new one and surprise Lauren by popping the question at Nakalele Blowhole in Maui, where the couple posed for their engagement photos three years ago.
“It’s so pretty,” Lauren exclaimed in their video about the new ring. “Yeah, you did so good, babe. You’re so sweet.”
