While it’s definitely a tough (and unconventional) journey to find love, some couples have gone all the way in the Bachelor franchise. There is a healthy handful who are still together, but a few special couples went on to get married and brought the cutest Bachelor Nation babies into the world. Of course, many alums of the shows do have their own kids with people outside of reality TV, but below are the couples who met, found love and had babies within the Bachelor and Bachelorette bubble.
One of the first long-term couples to grace the Bachelor Nation franchise is Trista and Ryan Sutter. Trista (née Rehn) appeared on the first-ever season of The Bachelor in 2002. Unfortunately, she did not get the final rose, but to her luck, she became the first leading lady for The Bachelorette the following year. That is where she met her current hubby, Ryan, whom she’s been with for almost two decades.
Fast forward to the present day, and the lovely couple has two kids — Maxwell, who was born in 2007, and Blakesley, who arrived in 2009. While the married duo had no problem displaying their relationship to the world all those years ago, they rather their kids stay away from watching those episodes.
“I don’t know if we’ll necessarily pull up the Tubi app and have them watch my season of The Bachelorette,” Trista told Today in 2019 after her season became available to stream. “Their parents making out? No, we don’t need to be showing them that.”
Ryan couldn’t help but agree with his wife. “I was always so comfortable with the fact it was only available on VHS, so I knew no one was ever going to watch it — and now it’s caught up with technology,” he told the outlet at the time.
Recent Bachelor Nation couples have less luck considering their love stories are documented not only on TV and streaming platforms but also on social media. While the digital age makes it easier for people to stay connected, it also creates less privacy.
“This has always been my favorite part about it — 15 years ago, we were protected by obsolete technology,” Ryan added. Regardless, we’re sure kids will someday appreciate learning about how their parents fell in love!
