Ben Higgins Begins Filming The Bachelor, Is Absolute Dreamboat Holding Baby: Photo!

What a dreamboat! Ben Higgins is ready to meet his future wife, and his wooing weapon of choice is… a baby. The Indiana native began filming Season 20 of The Bachelor on Thursday, Sept. 24, where he held an adorable tyke on set.

One of the show's executive producers, Mike Fleiss, gave Bachelor Nation a sneak peek at Higgins' big first day via Twitter. He posted a photo of the clean-shaven reality star, 27, holding an adorable little boy.

"The Bens on night one!!!" Fleiss, 51, captioned the pic. The little guy appears to be Fleiss' baby boy, also named Ben.

Higgins recently placed third in Kaitlyn Bristowe's Season 11 of The Bachelorette. Us Weekly confirmed last month that he would be getting a second chance at love.

"I think it’s a great opportunity," Higgins told Us before he was announced as the next Bachelor. "I think it’s something that any man, if asked, should consider. And I’ve been in the process now and I can see that it works."
