Bachelor In Paradise stars Astrid Loch and Kevin Wendt are going to be parents for the second time after the couple announces that Astrid is pregnant.
Bachelor in Paradise season 5 couple Astrid Loch and Kevin Wendt announced that they are expecting their second child. Kevin and Astrid found love on the beach in 2018 but did not leave Paradise as a couple. However, they reconciled after the show. Kevin proposed in 2019, but they had to postpone their wedding due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Astrid gave birth to their son, August “Auggy” William Wendt, on November 20, 2021, after a fertility struggle. She and Kevin had been very open about their IVF journey in order to help other couples who were going through the same thing. Astrid and Kevin got married on October 28, 2022 at the Powel Crosley Estate in Sarasota, Florida.
SCREENRANT VIDEO OF THE DAY
In an Instagram post, Bachelor in Paradise’s Kevin Wendt shared the happy news that Astrid is pregnant. It was an extra special announcement because Kevin revealed on his own birthday that he and Astrid will be parents again. Kevin wrote, “Happy birthday to me! Auggy is going to be a big brother this fall!! Who would have thought the best birthday gift I ever got was pee on a stick [laughing emoji].”
Kevin opened up about his and Astrid’s fertility journey and said that it’s rare for people to share their pregnancy news at “only 4 weeks.” However, “Sharing a couple’s struggle to conceive usually isn’t either, and we wanted to be transparent this time around as we headed into another round of IVF.” Kevin concluded his post with hope for the future, saying, “So fingers crossed this pregnancy is smooth sailing from here as we continue to try and grow our little Wendt gang.”
Astrid Loch & Kevin Wendt Share Their IVF Journey
Kevin and Astrid’s pregnancy announcement follows a January 19 Instagram post in which Astrid revealed that they had transferred their embryo. She wrote that the last time, their IVF journey “felt much harder to share, there was so much more fear. But you guys have been an incredible community so this time I’m taking you along for the ride.” She shared pictures of the medications and injections that she used, a sonogram picture of the embryo, and a video which captured the moment that their embryo was transferred. Now Kevin and Astrid are sharing the fantastic news that the procedure was successful, and baby number two is on the way.
By being so open about their IVF journey, Astrid and Kevin will help other couples who are struggling with the same thing. The Bachelor in Paradise couple has shared both the ups and downs of the experience, and are very honest about it. Bachelor Nation has embraced the couple and has been rooting for them as they attempted to expand their family. Now their dreams have come true as they are expecting a baby brother or sister for Auggy.
Kevin and Astrid are one of the strongest couples to come out of Bachelor in Paradise. Their devotion to each other and their love for Auggy is so special. Now they will welcome a new baby into the world. Making the announcement on Kevin’s birthday made it even more special, as it symbolized what a wonderful gift this baby is for him and Astrid. Kevin and Astrid are wished all the best as they await their baby’s birth.
