Bachelor star Bekah Martinez’s due date is finally here!
The mama-to-be just revealed on Instagram that she has finally reached her due date, so her little one should be arriving any day now.
“Today is my official due date. My, what a journey it has been. Thank you all for the love you’ve showered upon me. There is so much from these past 9 months to be grateful for,” she wrote on Tuesday, January 29.
Bekah initially announced she was expecting her first child with boyfriend Grayston Leonard back in September.
“I was in disbelief and thought, ‘Is this really happening?’ I immediately called Grayston and then went across the street to the Dollar Tree and bought two more pregnancy tests. They, of course, were both positive,” she told PureWow.
“It’s the one thing that I’ve known with certainty for so long. I’ve gone back and forth on the idea of marriage and relationships, but I’ve always felt sure that I want to be a mom.”
She also told Grayston about their baby on Father’s Day of all days!
“I was crying [happy tears] and said, ‘You’re going to be a dad!’ We hugged, and it was the first time we really got to be overjoyed,” she shared.
“We were finally able to celebrate and soak up all of that emotion.”
She continued, “It still feels so surreal but it was this tangible way of knowing I’m going to have a son or daughter and everything is about to change in a good way.”
And, despite their pregnancy being unplanned, Bekah is enjoying the experience tremendously and was excited to be open about it.
“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,” she said.
