When one fan asked if Lauren plans to have any more kids, Chris — who also participated in the Q&A session — shared a snippet of a new country song he wrote about being intimate with his wife, according to BachelorNation.com.

Chris wrote, “I’m sending her signals through songs I write, but she hasn’t gotten the hint yet.”

Lauren responded to her husband, saying, “Excuse me sir, I’m ready when you are!”

Lauren actually revealed she had her IUD removed due to health concerns in April, but at the time, she wasn’t prepared to conceive again.

“I will be tracking my cycle using Natural Cycles for now and I’ll also be using secondary forms of birth control because we are not ready yet, if ever, we don’t know,” Lauren reportedly said at the time.

“We have not decided about a third baby.”

Lauren, a former flight attendant, found fame when she competed on Ben Higgins’ season of The Bachelor, which aired in early 2016.

After the couple got engaged on The Bachelor’s Season 16 finale, Ben and Lauren spent two months filming a spinoff about their relationship and pending wedding titled Ben & Lauren: Happily Ever After?, but they announced their split in May 2017, about six months after the show’s finale aired on Freeform.

Lauren then dated real estate investor Devin Antin for about a year, and their relationship ended in Summer 2018.

Lauren and Chris sparked dating rumors in November of that year when The Bachelor alum accompanied the country crooner to the 66th Annual BMI Country Music Awards in Nashville.

Not only did Chris and Lauren arrive at the event together, but they also looked like a couple.

Lauren got engaged to Chris in June 2019 and then they got married just four months later in Nashville. After their October 2019 wedding, Lauren and Chris welcomed two sons, Dutton and Baker.

Lauren gave birth to her second child, Baker, in October 2022, after welcoming Dutton in June 2021.

Ben has said in the media that while he’s happy for Lauren, he’s frustrated that she previously downplayed the significance of their engagement on Shawn Booth’s “In the Booth” podcast.

Ben also recently shared on the “Bachelor Happy Hour” podcast that his romance with Lauren came crashing down long before they publicly announced their breakup.

When he and Lauren were offered a televised wedding on Ben & Lauren: Happily Ever After?, they discussed the opportunity off-camera and both came to the conclusion that their relationship wasn’t going to work.

“We were like, ‘Are we going to do this? Because if we get married, we better do it on national television, like, no question right?’ And we were both like, ‘I don’t think we’re going to get married,'” Ben admitted.

“And that was one of the final episodes. They were done filming maybe a week later and we kind of tried to make it work a little bit longer, and then finally, it was over… About a month-and-a-half into filming [Ben & Lauren: Happily Ever After?], we were kind of calling it.”

Ben acknowledged that his priorities were “misaligned at the time” during a September 2023 episode of Jason Tartick’s “Trading Secrets” podcast, adding, “I was young and naive. I thought we could get through [it]. So when we broke up, Happily Ever After? stopped… I don’t know why I said ‘yes’ to it.”

Ben said he and Lauren “became like working partners.” Not only were they exhausted, but they had no privacy.

Ben, for his part, is now happily married to a woman outside of Bachelor Nation, Jessica Clarke, whom he wed in November 2021.
