Astrid Loch Said They Suffered Silently

Astrid Loch can’t express the relief she feels being pregnant with her first child. According to People, she said it wasn’t easy to get to that point. She said the first thing they connected over was looking forward to having children. One of their main goals together was to start a family.

The two met on the fifth season of Bachelor in Paradise. Astrid said, “Coming down the stairs to tell Kevin it didn’t work again was the thing I dreaded most each month.” Loch said he always comforted her. Going through it during COVID made things harder because Kevin couldn’t go with her to the appointments. He couldn’t be there for the first IUI.

Bachelor Nation shared their support for the couple sharing their journey. Kendall Long said, “You are such a strong woman to go through all of this.” Becca Kufrin said, “So well written, thank you for sharing this with the world.” Sharleen Joynt said, “Gosh that was so beautifully and vividly written—thank you for sharing this personal, difficult, but incredibly helpful journey with us.”
