Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham Are Taking Their Relationship to the Next Level—By Moving In Together

THE BACHELOR - "The Bachelor: After the Final Rose" - Arie's soul-searching journey continues after America followed the chaos of his being in love with two women, which played out in gut-wrenching fashion, on "The Bachelor: After the Final Rose," a two-hour live special, TUESDAY, MARCH 6 (8:00-10:01 p.m. EST), on The ABC Television Network.

Status update: Bachelor alum Arie Luyendyk Jr. and his fiancée, Lauren Burnham, are currently on yet another journey together—this time, on a road trip from Burnham’s hometown in Virginia to Arizona, where Arie currently lives.

The reality couple, who’ve largely kept a low profile since the controversial Bachelor finale earlier this month, are seemingly en route to Phoenix, where they will be moving in together and presumably starting wedding planning.

Luyendyk, 36, and Burnham, 25, spend much of the month of March abroad, escaping the public eye with a getaway in Iceland and Spain, where they shared scenic photos to Instagram.

“Becoming quite the Instagram fiancé,” the race car driver captioned one particularly stunning photo of Burnham perched on a hotel rooftop.


The pair got engaged on the two-part After the Finale Rose special earlier this month in what was billed as the most controversial ending to a Bachelor season ever: Luyendyk initially proposed to Minnesota native Becca Kufrin during the season’s finale, but later broke up with her in a painfully filmed and unedited clip several weeks later.

The Bachelor star then begged Burnham for another chance, and proposed to her in front of both their families and a live studio audience.

“Lauren has been telling everyone that she is so excited to get married and wants it to happen very quickly,” a source recently told E! News. “After everything that they have been through, they are ready to just seal the deal and spend forever together.”
