Bekah Martinez: Accidentally Pregnant with First Child!
Attention, Bachelor Nation:
Bekah Martinez has a very important announcement to make.
And also a very cute, precious, exciting and special announcement to make.
In case this opening, or the headline above, didn’t make it obvious enough, the announcement is this:
MARTINEZ IS PREGNANT!
The 23-year old former Bachelor suitor confirmed the developing fetus inside her womb in an interview with PureWow, admitting to the outlet that she and boyfriend Grayston Leonard were not planning a pregnancy.
But certain things happen when you have sex without any protection and here they are now.
“I was in disbelief and thought, ‘Is this really happening?’” Martinez confessed in a moment of honesty, saying she learned she’s expecting a child just three months into her relationship.
“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.”
Martinez revealed to the world that she was dating Leonard in July, amidst speculation that she was schedule to appear on season 5 of Bachelor in Paradise.
She entered the spotlight earlier this year by becaming one of the youngest contestants to compete on the ABC dating series when she vied for Arie Luyendyk Jr. ‘s heart during season 22.
Then, in one of the strangest things to ever happen in human history, we learned that Martinez was reported missing while she was on the program because her mother had no clue where she was when she went off to film.
Bekah’s mom then watched her daughter on The Bachelor and was like, oh, good, she’s safe.
But back to the pregnancy;
“I’ve just come to such a point of accepting it and embracing it and being excited and telling people and all that,” Martinez says in a YouTube video, reiterating:
“I was just in such a state of shock when I found out.”
The reality TV, who is due in January of 2019, told PureWow that she thinks “pregnancy is better than Bachelor in Paradise,” adding a joke as follows:
“Although I’m probably equally as sweaty, exhausted, nauseous, stressed out and emotional, at least I don’t have to worry about finding a man. I already have that one covered.”
And what does that man think of the news?
“As it’s gone further, almost every day becomes happier for me,” he says.
“She’s got a little bump now. Her belly button’s starting to push out. It’s like all of these things make it really fun and real. It’s this transforming moment from ‘If I have to, I’ll do it. I’ll be a good dad.”
Bekah, who is very good looking, as you can see down below, says she was never certain about love or marriage or relationship.
She has struggled at times with what she wants in that aspect of her life.
When it comes to kids, however?
“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.”
Not a wife?
Bekah is in no rush to make anything official, saying;
“It’s a horrible idea for us to consider with all of the hormones and the stress we’re experiencing. The last thing we need is to consider another commitment on top of what we’re already going through…
“Regardless, we’re bound together by sharing this little life.”
