Did Bachelor alum win Miss World Puerto Rico?

In March of 2022, Mari Pepin shared some exciting news with her followers. She was pursuing her lifelong dream of competing in the Miss World Puerto Rico pageant.

The pageant queen was previously named Miss Maryland in 2019.

She had her fiance, Kenny Braash’s, full support in competing in the beauty pageant.

Mari Pepin and Kenny Braasch continue to evade the Bachelor Nation relationship curse. They are still together, still engaged and actively planning their wedding.

Bachelorette alums Tayshia Adams and Michelle Young are among the franchise stars who recently split from their final rose pick.

Additionally, Season 17 lead Katie Thurston ended her romance with former suitor John Hersey. She was previously engaged to Blake Moynes.

A few months ago Mari confused fans by posting what looked like a pregnancy test. However, it was actually an ad for Natural Cycles, a period tracking app.

She let fans know in the comments that she and Kenny do want children, but weren’t currently trying.

Now she’s back on Instagram with an announcement of the couple’s new baby boy. Did they have a surprise baby?

Mari Pepin and Kenny Braasch did add a new family member, but the furry kind. They adopted the most adorable Yorkshire Terrier puppy!

A post on Mari’s Instagram announces the pup’s arrival. “IT’S A BOY,” she writes alongside a photo of her and Kenny with a black-and-white photo similar to a sonogram picture.

The post includes multiple snapshots of the sonogram-esque photo until fans swipe and see the puppy. They’ve chosen the name “Eleven” after the main character in Netflix’s Stranger Things.

However, the couple is open to name suggestions if fans can think of a more fitting name.

Eleven isn’t the only dog in the family. The couple also has a Maltese named Monster. How is the older dog adjusting to the new pup? Not so well.

According to Mari, Monster is more interested in the extra food. “He also loves *trying* to play with Monster, but Monster is just worried about trying to eat the extra serving of food that gets put out now,” she joked on the Instagram post.

She also shared a snapshot of Monster photobombing what was meant to be a cute family photo. See more adorable photos of Monster and Eleven.
