After posting an Instagram ad featuring a baby car seat, some fans speculate that the former leader of The Bachelor Matt James indirectly announces girlfriend Rachael Kirkconnell’s pregnancy. Matt and Rachael first met on The Bachelor season 25, when they both traveled to Nemacolin, Pennsylvania, hoping to find love. Matt and Rachael formed a quick connection, which led to Rachael receiving Matt’s final rose in the final over runner-up Michelle Young. Although Matt and Rachael didn’t get engaged, they left the show as a couple.
Sometime after Rachael received the last rose, several photos surfaced online of Rachael participating in racially insensitive activities such as a plantation party. After Matt found out, the two ended their relationship and were not together during the filming of the After The Final Rose ceremony. However, Matt and Rachael eventually worked through things and got back together, and they’ve been going strong as a couple ever since. Matt has admitted that he believes the two have such a strong relationship now because they keep their distance Bachelor education Nation.
In a recent ad on Instagram, Mat has led several fans to believe that he and Rachael may be expecting a child after he happily puts a baby car seat in his car at the end of the video. The video appears to be a sponsorship deal with Nissan as Matt promotes the Nissan Altima by driving it around for groceries while demonstrating its efficiency. At the end of the video, fans saw Matt take flowers inside after doing his shopping, ostensibly to give them to Rachael. Matt then comes out smiling with a baby car seat, which he puts it in when the video ends.
Many fans were quick to comment on their theories, with the fan account The Bitchelorette to write “car seat???”. Others followed suit, saying they believed this was Matt’s subtle way of possibly announcing that Rachael was pregnant. Several others shared their support for Matt and Rachael, telling the couple that they would make great parents. The entire comment section was quickly filled with questions about the car seat, unlike the rest of the video.
Of course, while many were quick to speculate about a possible pregnancy as a result of the car seat, it’s also possible that this is just a standard part of the ad. However, if the pregnancy is true, Matt and Rachael would join several others Bachelor education Nation stars in the process of becoming new parents. Tia Booth, who appeared on The Bachelor season 22 as well as several seasons of Bachelor in Paradise recently announced her pregnancy, with fiancé Taylor Mock. Nevertheless, fans are certainly curious as to whether this ad was a coincidence, or a very indirect pregnancy announcement from Matt and Rachael.
