‘We just can’t decide. Oh, my, but he is so sweet. It’s not even like we’re looking for the perfect name or anything like that, but we haven’t found anything that clicks or fits his personality,’ she continued.

In another post, she wrote, ‘Not trying to get too crazy unique either but names like Ezra, Oliver, Mateo, Sebastian, etc. are all in the top 30 boys’ names for 2020, and I just don’t want him to be one of five kids with the same name in his class.’  

Recently, Martinez shared an image of her breastfeeding  her newborn son and her 16-month-old daughter, Ruth Ray De La Luz, at the same time. 

‘In case you were wondering how the breastfeeding is going…’ the reality TV star captioned footage of herself nursing both her little ones with three laugh face emojis.

‘I don’t wanna jinx anything, but I woke up around 6am this morning with cramping every 10-15 minutes and pink mucus + some fluid (TMI, but whatever) which were the exact symptoms I had last time going into labor!! She was born within 36 hours.’

Bekah recently shared that she was most worried about the weeks following her son’s arrival.

‘I’m mostly nervous about what the postpartum period is going to be like, or what people call the fourth trimester. That was the hardest time for me,’ she shared recently on social media.

‘You’re generally not getting any sleep at all and you kind of feel like you’re losing your mind.’ 

She continued: ‘I’m going to have to deal with that but instead of just getting to lay around in bed with the baby like I did with Ruth, this time, I’m going to be taking care of another baby as well.’  

Bekah announced her second pregnancy on Thanksgiving 2019.

She revealed on her Podcast, Chatty Broads, last year that she was in complete shock when she learnt she was pregnant again. 

‘I was two weeks late on my period,’ she said. 

‘Granted, I’ve only had two periods since Ruth was born, so when I missed my period I thought, “Ok, my hormones are probably still shifting.”‘

Bekah explained she waited another two weeks before taking an at-home pregnancy test. 

‘About two weeks after, I was like, “Well, I do have a test here in the house.” It was in the morning and Gray [her boyfriend] was in the bed with Ruth and I didn’t say anything. I was like, “I’ll take it. Why not.”‘

But it wasn’t the calmest of reveals with Bekah admitting the clear double red lines had her ‘convulsing.’

‘My body was almost convulsing,’ she said. ‘I was shaking so hard. I was in utter shock and disbelief.’  

Bekah first rose to fame as a fan favorite on Arie Luyendyk Jr.’s season of the Bachelor. 

She later moved on to Grayson and they had only been dating for three months when she became pregnant.
