1. Climber

He’s a climber — not a social climber or a corporate climber. A rock climber. The couple met a a climbing gym and hit it off. They started out as friends but got closer very quickly. Bekah told PureWow“At first, it was really casual and we were just doing a lot of fun stuff together, and then it just progressed into something deeper.”

3. Her own private paradise

Martinez had considered going on Bachelor in Paradise but the demands of the show — specifically that she look for a relationship with other contestants — didn’t fit in with what she was starting to build with Leonard. In a video she says, “But as it got closer to [filming] I just started realizing that it wasn’t worth it for me to put myself in that environment where I could possibly jeopardize what I had with Grayston.”

4. He’s a planner

While the pregnancy was a surprise to both of them, happening only a few months into their relationship, he got right into the details.  Bekah told PureWow, “He immediately started researching prenatal vitamins and then presented me with the top four options to choose from,” she says. “He’s been really into finding resources and reading books about pregnancy. He stepped up to the plate and it just makes me feel that much better about starting this new chapter in my life with him.”

5. Bachelor blackout

Leonard says he never watched Bekah's season of The Bachelor, which aired after they started dating. Martinez told People, "His friends were like, ‘Dude, are you gonna watch it?’… And he was like, ‘No, I don’t want the show affecting my opinion of who I know her to be.’”

6. Wedding bells

The couple hasn’t made any remarks about marriage, except for a cryptic integral post from early Septmeber. In it, Leonard jokes about getting an annulment but the post may just be a joke.

The couple has not announced the gender of their baby. Their due date is sometime in January 2019.
