‘The Bachelor’ Star Bekah Martinez Is Pregnant!
A new Bachelor Nation baby is on the way! Bekah Martinez revealed on Wednesday, September 12, that she’s pregnant and expecting her first child with boyfriend Grayston Leonard.
“The first thing I felt when I saw the positive was just pure shock,” Martinez said in a video documenting the first few months of her pregnancy. “My hands were shaking. I picked up the phone and called Grayston — I don’t think I had even processed it in my head [yet].”
Both Martinez and Leonard, who have been dating for seven months, spoke very candidly about the unplanned aspect of the pregnancy, admitting that it took time for each of them to accept and embrace the situation.
“I wanted to share this experience with other women who have been in a similar situation or might be in the future, so they know they’re not alone,” Martinez told PureWow.
The couple, who found out they were expecting just three months into their relationship, also said that while the pregnancy has brought them closer together, they’re taking things one day at a time and do not have plans to marry at the present.
Martinez starred on season 22 of The Bachelor with Arie Luyendyk Jr. While it was rumored that she would also go on to star on Bachelor in Paradise season 5, she declined an offer so that she could focus on her new relationship with Leonard — and their baby-to-be.
Martinez is approximately 20 weeks along and due in late January 2019. Congrats to the new mom and dad-to-be!
