“Bachelor” star Lauren Bushnell and country singer Chris Lane are officially parents!

The new mom shared her newborn’s name via Instagram, writing as a caption to a precious photo of the pair, “Dutton Walker Lane born June 8th, 2021.”
Bushnell then shared a tidbit about the tot that shocked her and Lane: “Your dad and I can’t get enough of all 9 pounds of you.” Indeed, as Lane told People, “Everyone in the room, including Lauren and me, were shocked we had a 9-pound baby! Not sure where he was hiding in her belly?!”
