'Bachelor' Alum Bekah Martinez Is Pregnant

Bekah Martinez was one of the girls competing for the heart of (boring-ass) Arie on his season of The Bachelor who stood out the most. She was younger, more vocal, different from the rest of the girls. She was our dark, curly pixie cut in a world of blonde ombres.

Now she’s about to pass on her spunk, and possibly that pixie cut. Bekah, 23, announced today that she is expecting her first child with Grayston Leonard, her boyfriend of seven months.

“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," she told PureWow about her surprising discovery. "They, of course, were both positive.”

Though the news came as a shock to the couple, who had only been together for three months at the time, Bekah couldn’t be more excited about her upcoming arrival. “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.”

Since finding out about her pregnancy, Bekah has decided not to be part of the Bachelor franchise anymore, and she is very okay with that. “I think pregnancy is better than Bachelor in Paradise,” she said.

Bekah made headlines earlier this year for being found on a missing persons list after her stint on the Bachelor. She’s also still active on Twitter, giving her take on Bachelor news such as the next season’s casting announcement:

Here’s hoping Bekah’s baby grows up to be as pithy and entertaining as she is.
