“The Bachelor” alum Bekah Martinez, 28, is expecting! The fan-favorite announced she and longtime partner Grayston Leonard are adding a new addition to their family in a Tuesday, April 25 Instagram post. The mother-of-two used a stop motion video to announce the big news. In the video, a clay figure meant to resemble Bekah entered a tiny bathroom made of clay and took a pregnancy test.
“You only get so many social media pregnancy announcements… might as well have a little fun with it! 🤰🏻,” she wrote in the caption of the post.
Bekah welcomed her first child Ruth on February 2, 2019, less than a year after she made her reality TV debut on season 22 of “The Bachelor.” The ABC star shared photos from Ruth’s home birth on Instagram alongside the caption, “On the morning of February 2nd, our little girl joined us earth-side and we will never be the same. We are all as healthy and happy as can be.”
Bekah and Grayston welcomed their son Frankie “Frank” on June 19, 2020. When Bekah originally shared the news via Instagram, she told fans she and Grayston had not yet decided on a name.
“No name yet; suggestions welcome :) Birth story coming soon. ✨,” she wrote alongside a photo of the newborn. The California native later revealed her son’s name in an Instagram post on June 24, 2020.
