The Bachelor's Bekah Martinez reveals she's pregnant with first child

The Bachelor star Bekah Martinez is pregnant!

On Wednesday, Sept. 12, 2018, Pure Wow published an article announcing Martinez's pregnancy to the world. The reality TV star revealed that three months into her relationship with boyfriend Grayston Leonard the two discovered that they were expecting their first child together. And while the pregnancy was not planned, Martinez said it was "legitimately a dream come true."

The 23-year-old explained, "It's the one thing that I've known with certainty for so long. 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."

Martinez's little bundle of joy is due at the end of January 2019. At the time of this writing, Martinez is 20 weeks into her pregnancy. While she'd initially faced exhaustion, headaches, and nausea in her first trimester, Martinez, who shared an inside look at her pregnancy on YouTube, has since been feeling "super energized" and has gotten back into doing some of her favorite activities like hiking.

Martinez — who once made headlines for a misunderstanding in which she was reported missing when she'd actually been with friends on their marijuana farm — also admitted to Pure Wow that, while Leonard may not have initially been sure about how he felt about her pregnancy, he has quickly adapted to his new role as a soon-to-be father, reading parenting books, researching vitamins for her to take, and cooking her homemade meals. Martinez noted that she and Leonard, who have been dating for just seven months, are now closer than ever — but they're not ready to discuss marriage just yet.

"It's a horrible idea for us to consider with all of the hormones and the stress we're experiencing," she explained. "The last thing we need is to consider another commitment on top of what we're already going through. … Regardless, we're bound together by sharing this little life."

Martinez and Leonard are waiting to learn the sex of their baby, so we'll just have to wait until Martinez shares the news after her little one's birth. One thing that Martinez does know, however, is that she's officially done with The Bachelor franchise.
