The couple spoke to PEOPLE following Dutton’s birth, both still in awe of the arrival of their son.

“Everyone in the room, including Lauren and me, were shocked we had a 9-pound baby! Not sure where he was hiding in her belly?!” Lane, 36, said jokingly. “Watching Lauren go through the birthing process – from the beginning to the moment she delivered – was the most incredible thing I’ve ever witnessed. I experienced an emotion I’ve never felt before.”

Lauren added, “I’ve never felt an immediate unconditional love like I now have for Dutton. And going through this experience with Chris has made me love and appreciate him even more … I didn’t think that was possible!”

Chris and Lauren, former winner of the Bachelor season 20, wed in October 2019 after less than a year together. They announced their pregnancy in December of 2020 on Instagram with an ultrasound video.
