THE Bachelor's Lauren Burnham and Arie Luyendyk Jr. welcome twins, a boy and a girl, and "momma & babies are doing great!"

The couple shared the news that they would be having one girl and one boy in January with a sweet gender reveal video.

Arie, 39, and Lauren, 29, have officially welcomed their twins to the family, as they took to social media on Saturday to share the happy news.

The couple celebrated the momentous occasion alongside their family, and daughter Alessi, two.

During the afternoon, Arie shared a video where he had just dropped off Lauren at the hospital and was walking to meet up with her, saying she was on "triage to see if this is happening today."

The Bachelor alum then shared videos of monitors being attached to his wife's belly as they listened to their babies' heartbeats.

Just minutes later, Arie revealed that the birth was happening and he was running to the car to get their baby bag before he added that Lauren "was having a hard time this go around with nausea."

Lauren then made an appearance as she cradled her belly for one last time while rocking a hospital gown.

The proud father of three then shared that the babies "are here! Momma and babies are doing great and everything went smoothly."

He added: "Spending time cherishing these moments, thank you all for all the support."

The Bachelor alum and his wife first announced the genders of their new arrivals on January, 19th, after receiving the news following a doctor visit.

Lauren shared a series of photos holding one pink and one blue cotton candy as she laughed with her husband and daughter in excitement.

"Alessi is getting a baby BROTHER & a baby SISTER. we couldn’t be more excited!" she gushed.

In a few other shots, the parents embraced over the reveal, Alessi got her own turn holding the cotton candy, and Lauren caressed her developing bump.

Arie and his wife announced that they were expecting twins in December with an ultrasound Youtube video.

The blonde beauty wrote: "We're pregnant! We've known for a while and we've been trying to hide it."

The duo admitted how "hard" it was to keep it a secret, as they showed fans a montage from the mom's first trimester.

Though Arie was "blown away" by the news, Lauren shared her fears due to previous pregnancy complications.

"I'm terrified, at one point cause I know it's probably going to be a trickier pregnancy. But I'm also really happy because I think it's gonna be so cool."

Despite the happiness from their twins, the pair spoke about how they tragically suffered a miscarriage just months earlier.

In a selfie confessional, Lauren explained: "I’m filming this video and I'm one day shy of 12 weeks. I had to wait the whole time this time for my mental state to make sure everything was good.

“I thought there was going to be bad news but then there wasn't. 

“I had a couple of freak-outs because I feel like I have a little bit of PTSD from the miscarriage that we had earlier this year," the now mother of three admitted.

“Anytime my extreme nausea went away, I was like, 'Oh my God, are they okay?' Call my doctor crying like, 'What's happening? Are they okay?' She was like talking me off the ledge.”

The couple opened up about their "rainbow babies" after Lauren confessed to feeling emotional after their loss.

"It's hard to know what to say right now. I've been crying on and off for the past 3 months… right now is no different. So so grateful," the Virginia Beach native said,

They also made sure to keep their fans in the loop as they shared a post on Instagram reading: “2020 completely redeemed itself!”

Arie and Lauren met in 2018 when he held the lead role on The Bachelor, and they married shortly after in a lavish Hawaiian wedding.
