Bachelor Star Bekah Martinez Pregnant With First Child
Bachelor Star Bekah Martinez Pregnant With First Child – Bekah has had quite the year, from appearing on Season 22 of “The Bachelor” to the revelation her own mother declared her missing before she appeared on national television as a dating contestant.
And the 23-year-old had even bigger news to break on Wednesday — she’s pregnant with her first child.
Bekah, who is expecting with boyfriend Grayston Leonard, made the announcement on PureWow Opens A New Window
“I was in disbelief and thought, ‘Is this really happening?’ I immediately called Grayston and then went across the street to the Dollar Tree and bought two more pregnancy tests,” Bekah recalled. “They, of course, were both positive.”
While she does not know the gender yet, the reality contestant is thrilled by the news.
Bekah, who competed for Arie Luyendyk Jr.’s love on the last season of “The Bachelor,” said: “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.”
The soon-to-be mom said she has no plans yet to marry her boyfriend and is simply focusing on her pregnancy.
Meanwhile, Bekah’s stint on “The Bachelor” received widespread media attention when it was revealed her own mother had reported her missing to authorities. According to Bekah it was all a misunderstanding. She had wrapped filming on the show and took a vacation, which prompted her mother to file the report. The timing of course, with shooting schedules, made it all come out while the show aired.
Explaining the situation to Jimmy Kimmel earlier this year, she said: “I just decided to go to the mountains with my friends for a couple weeks [after filming] and I was there for six or seven days without phone service, which I thought I was going to have phone service and I told my mother that I would.”
“I just had this weird feeling on the sixth or seventh day. ‘I need to go home now,’ I thought. So, I got in my car, drove to where I had service, called my parents and then come to find out [that] only 12 hours before, my mother had called the Humboldt Sheriff’s Department saying that I was missing.”
