Former Bachelor stars Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham are ready for parenthood! The couple celebrated the impending arrival of their baby girl with an activity-filled baby shower on Saturday.

Burnham’s friends Sarah Stidham and Kayla Evangelista hosted the shower, where everyone was invited to join in on the fun, Entertainment Tonight reports. There were traditional games, like a baby bottle chugging competition and having the couple guess who would be better at certain parenting activities, like singing lullabies. They also had one activity that was totally out of the box: The parents-to-be set up a sonogram machine so that fellow moms to be could check out their own buns in the oven.

Luyendyk and Burnham met on the 22nd season of The Bachelor in 2017 and wed in Hawaii in January. “I made some bad decisions but the best decision was running back to you,” the reality star said before he proposed with—what else?—a ring from Neil Lane. “I truly believe you are my soul mate. I’m ready to face this life with you and all that comes with it. I love you so much. I wanted to do this in front of everyone because I want to show you that I should have done this a long time ago.”

This will be their first child together. "We're really, really excited to meet her. It's been a long time coming," Burnham told Entertainment Tonight. "I've been pregnant for seven-ish months, so it's about time to get my body back and to meet our baby. We're really happy."

Luyendyk seems to share same excitement over the prospect of being a dad. "I think it's cool, you know? We're experiencing being new parents, so we're on all the apps, learning about the development of the baby, and it's just been kind of an awesome ride so far," he said. "I can't wait for her to come."
