Lauren Bushnell Biography

Lauren Bushnell got engaged to Ben Higgins on The Bachelor's Season 20 finale when it aired on ABC in early 2016, but after about a year together and a Happily Ever After? spinoff on Freeform, the pair split in May 2017.

After dating a man whom she had met on Tinder, Devin Antin, began dating country singer Chris Lane.

Lauren and Chris met in 2015 at a radio event in Austin, TX, but they started out as friends.

Chris reportedly "randomly asked" Lauren in August 2018 to join a group of his friends for a Bahamas vacation and that's when their mutual attraction became known.

After Lauren went home to Los Angeles, CA, and Chris returned to Nashville, he said he couldn't get the blonde beauty off his mind.

Daily calls therefore let into more hangout sessions, and then the couple went public with their romance in November 2018 when they walked the red carpet together at the CMA Awards.

"That was kind of the 'Alright, let's do this thing and see what happens,'" Chris shared.

By 2019, things moved quickly. Not only did Lauren move to Nashville in March, but they also went ring shopping together and Lauren picked out a sparkler she loved.

"I just wanted to get her exactly what she wants," Chris said of her 3.5-carat emerald-cut diamond. "I feel like that's a practical way to do it. Why not?"

After their June 2019 engagement, Lauren immediately hired a wedding planner, and the couple got married in Nashville, TN in October 2019.

Lauren and Chris wed in front of 160 family and friends in an indoor "secret garden" ceremony.

The guest list included The Bachelor alums Amanda Stanton, Jennifer Saviano, and twins Haley Ferguson and Emily Ferguson.

Dr. Clayton King, a South Carolina pastor and author whose books have had a strong impact on Lane, reportedly officiated the ceremony.

The couple's first dance as man and wife was to Chris' song "Big, Big Plans," which Chris had played during his June marriage proposal at Lauren's family home in Oregon.

In June 2021, Lauren and Chris welcomed their first child, a baby boy.

Sixteen months later the couple welcomed their second child -- another baby boy -- in October 2022.
