“We have a healthy, BEAUTIFUL baby girl 6lbs, 13oz 20cm long,” the race car driver revealed on his Instagram Story at the time after documenting their hospital experience. “Mommy and baby are doing great, we are so incredibly happy.”
Burnham added a post of her own: “She is sweet, calm and @ariejr and I could not be more in love with her.”
“We weren’t trying, but we are so excited,” the real estate agent told Us. “It’s going to be a whole new chapter in our lives.”
The Virgina native explained that they thought their future parenting styles would mimic the way they treat their dogs, calling her husband “such a softie,” while she’s “a little bit more of the disciplinarian.”
Two months later, the TV personalities exclusively revealed the sex of their baby to Us. “We were both hoping that we were having a girl,” Burnham told Us in January — and their dream came true.
“I won’t have to worry about putting that little boy into a race car anytime soon,” the Bachelorette alum joked.

Mom signed me up for swim lessons that start in a couple weeks! In addition to the pool and bath time, I am LOVING looking out our windows.”
“Didn’t win the race today but still all smiles,” Luyendyk Jr. captioned a July 2019 father-daughter pic. “Alessi is already way more popular than me here at the @ssupertrucks / @indycar race.”
