BACHELOR frontrunner Bri Springs revealed to leading man Matt James that her mom gave birth to her when she was just 13-years-old.
During the first one-on-one date of the season, the reality show contestant dropped the bombshell that shocked fans and made viewers “emotional.”
Bri, 24, was chosen as the lucky lady to go on Matt’s first solo outing and the pair quickly got down and dirty on muddy ATV’s.
The show’s star admitted he felt “terrible” for accidentally flinging his potential wife off of the four-wheeled vehicle out in the woods.
“It’s okay, just a couple bruises,” Bri quipped as Matt helped her off the ground.
The duo cleaned up nicely as they headed for a romantic candlelit dinner.
As the Bri opened up about her personal life, she made a quick – yet surprising – comment about how she was raised.
“My mom became pregnant and had me at 13,” she told Matt sitting down at the table.
“She didn’t really date for a long time after that. It’s just been me my whole life. Me and my mom,” she added.
The gorgeous brunette continued to praise her mom, who made “countless sacrifices to give a fighting shot at having a successful life.”
Bri has appeared to honor her mother, Lauren Stoppelbein, as she has a tattoo on her right rib cage that says “thirteen” in Farsi.
She has been praised in the past by host Chris Harrison for having an impressive career at a “big” tech company – though he did not reveal exactly where.
Fans were shocked by the candid confession and has more questions than answers for the emotional reveal.
One person tweeted: “Guys, is no one else crying that Bri’s mom was 13 years old when she got pregnant?
“This is zero shade, I just feel so emotional that she was only a baby herself when she was having a baby of her own.”
Another viewer wrote: “First of all I love Bri, she is gorgeous. But did she just drop and quickly move on from the fact she said her mom was !13!
“When she had her? WAIT wut I have so many questions!”
“I am too high for Bri’s mom being 13-14 year older than her,” another said.
While one more questioned: “Bri’s mom was pregnant when she was 13??? this was me at 13. Holy f**k.”
The Bachelor airs on Monday’s at 8pm EST on ABC.
