Former Bachelor contestant Lauren Burnham has spoken out about false rumors that she has separated from husband, Arie Luyendyk Jr.
On Friday the 29-year-old reality television personality posted an email from a publication which asked whether rumors she and her 29-year-old husband had broken up were true.
Burnham took it in good humor as she posted a screenshot of the email and joked about spending very little time apart from her spouse, who she shares one-year-old daughter Alessi with.

The email, sent to Burnham’s rep from TMZ, read: ‘We are hearing her and Arie have separated. Hoping that’s not true! But wanted to reach out for a statement just in case.’
Burnham wrote in the caption: ‘i meannnnn if you count the 3 hours we separated for him to go dirt biking last weekend yeah we’ve ‘separated.’
The reality television star went on to give further evidence regarding the state of her happy relationship with her husband by posting a video to her story featuring the pair’s daughter Alessi.

In the video, the reality television stars checked on their first child and asked if she was sleeping while their daughter pretended to snore.
The caption for the story read: ‘i wonder where she got that fake snoring from,’ after which Burnham tagged her husband’s Instagram handle.
The confirmation of the pair’s relationship status comes just under a month after the couple posted a video to their shared YouTube channel where they announced that they would be welcoming twins in the near future.
During the video, the couple spoke about their excitement before entering the ultrasound room and being given the news that they would be expecting two children.
When she realized that she would have a double birth, Burnham jokingly asked her husband: ‘Is this your fault?’

Luyendyk Jr. later went on to share a snap featuring some photos of the ultrasound to his Instagram account.
The pair initially met during the 22nd season of The Bachelor, which aired in 2018; the now-father was previously a contestant during the reality show’s eighth season.
The couple was the focus of a controversial ending to the season, as Luyendyk Jr had already proposed to contestant Becca Kufrin before calling the engagement off in favor of beginning a relationship with Burnham, who was that season’s runner-up.
The two would go on to tie the knot in January of 2019 and subsequently moved to Arizona to start a family together.
