Bachelor host Chris Harrison has a few name suggestions for Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham’s baby on the way.
Chris told Entertainment Tonight about his picks and also explained why he was caught off guard by their pregnancy announcement.
“I can’t confirm this, but I heard the name is either Christina or Christopher. After me,” he dished.
“I told them Harrison would be OK too. I’m making this up. This is not breaking news!”
Arie and Lauren surprised all of Bachelor Nation when they announced their pregnancy in November.
“I was not surprised they’re getting married. The baby announcement caught me off guard, but I’m unbelievably excited for them,” Chris said.
“They built this life in Arizona, they have the new house, they put the pool in, they’re just a cute couple.”
He continued, “I love them to death and I’m glad that they have kind of gotten away and gotten back to their life. So I’m very, very happy for them.”
Arie and Lauren, who got engaged on the After the Final Rose episode earlier this year, are tying the knot in Hawaii next month.
Will Chris be officiating the wedding? Only time will tell!
“I can’t confirm or deny, but I think that would be fun, to go to Hawaii and officiate the wedding,” he revealed.
And, though Colton Underwood is the Bachelor this season, Chris revealed he’d “never say never” to becoming the leading man one day.
“I’ve been working hard on my abs. I’m getting ready, shaving my body. I’m getting ready, just in case you need me as the 50-year-old Bachelor,” he joked.
