Some Fans Think Astrid & Kevin Got Hitched
Astrid and Kevin got engaged in 2019 and had planned to wed in 2020, but they postponed their wedding plans due to the COVID-19 pandemic, according to People. The couple initially pushed their wedding date to November 2021, then postponed plans again after announcing Astrid’s pregnancy and November 2021 due date.
But as their baby’s due date nears, some fans think the “Bachelor in Paradise”’ pair already tied the knot in a secret ceremony. Fans recently zeroed in on photos in an Instagram post Kevin shared from a Toronto Blue Jays game he attended with Astrid. In one pic, the dad-to-be appears to be wearing a wedding band.
On social media, some fans also noted that Kevin calls Astrid “his wife” in his Instagram stories.
“Last I saw, they were still planning a wedding for November 2022. But I wouldn’t be surprised if they legally got married already!” one fan wrote on Reddit.
“My guess is they did some small ceremony over the summer when their families were all together at a lake house, but are still planning a bigger/formal event for next Nov.,” another added. “He seemed to start wearing a ring after that trip (based on ig pics). Just a hunch!”
“It definitely appears that way,” another chimed in. “Low key love if they just did something small and intimate before the baby.”
But in this case, the baby carriage still may come before marriage. In May 2021, Kevin told People that he and Astrid purposely pushed their baby plans ahead of their postponed weddings.
“Since the wedding would keep getting pushed off, we thought, ‘Okay, well, I don’t want to wait five years to have a baby. Let’s just try to have one before the wedding,'” he said.
