"I've just looked forward to the day for quite some time, and I'm glad that it's finally here," Chris told the outlet. "I feel like I'm the luckiest guy in the world to be marrying her." Lauren agreed, stating that she felt "like the luckiest girl."

The couple welcomed their first child, son Dutton, in 2021. Lauren announced the happy news via Instagram. "Dutton Walker Lane born June 8th, 2021," she gushed.
