Darling Dutton! Lauren Bushnell and Chris Lane they love life with their son.
The Bachelor alum gave birth in June 2021, writing via Instagram, “Datton Walker Lane born June 8, 2021. Your daddy and I can’t get enough of all 9 pounds of you. Now let’s get back to cuddling babies and praising Jesus over and over for this little miracle!!”
The country singer showed how he “holds” the boy on his own station for the first time. “Words cannot describe the love I feel in my heart for this little man!” the North Carolina native captioned the Instagram video. “Thank you for all the prayers. I will never understand how @laurenlan gave birth to a 9kg baby! DUTTON WALKER LANE welcome to the world.”
The following month, the couple brought their newborn to the emergency room after they thought Dutton had an ear infection.
“Fourteen hours later, we’re at home resting, but basically, he’s got the usual virus (basically a cold) and an ear infection, but with babies that young and under 28 days old, they’re worrying about meningitis and doing a full diagnosis and spinal tap,” the Bachelor Nation member told her Instagram followers in July 2021. “Thankfully, we just have to medicate him and keep an eye on him and pray that he doesn’t develop respiratory or get any secondary infection.”
The “Take Back Home Girl” singer also gave a health update, thanking his followers for their prayers. “Dutty Buddy is much better,” Lane nudged.
He and the former flight attendant married in October 2019 in Nashville, four months after the songwriter proposed. Bushnell was previously engaged Ben Higgins from 2016 to 2017 after they met and fell in love in season 20 The Bachelor.
When Bushnell and Lane announced their pregnancy news in December 2020, Higgins sent his congratulations via social media. “What a thing to celebrate,” the native of India commented on the revelation of his ex-fiancée on social media.
The Oregon native wrote at the time that her growing family was “a dream,” writing, “Holding daddy’s hand, watching you dance around in my belly. Listening to your little heart beat. My new favorite sound. A miracle. New life. Our sweet baby. Thank you Jesus! All glory belongs to You.”
