Babies on the brain! Bachelor alum Ben Higgins joked about his fiancée, Lauren Bushnell, getting ready for motherhood at a showing of Broadway's The Lion King in NYC Thursday, March 17.

Flight attendant Bushnell, 25, appeared to be on stage with the prop baby Simba for a cute photo-op. She held it up like baboon Rafiki does in the beloved 1994 Disney movie and the stage production.

"My girl practicing parenting @thelionking," Higgins, 26, teased in the Instagram caption.

Higgins and his bride-to-be have had a hectic couple of days in the Big Apple following the season 20 Bachelor finale and live taping of After the Final Rose in L.A. After their promotional rounds, they will travel back to Higgins' hometown in Denver. Bushnell is packing her bags and moving in with her hunky beau.

As previously reported, the lovebirds don't plan to have a long engagement — and want kids sooner than later. "We laughed about this the other day. I think, what did we say, three kids?" Higgins said during Good Morning America on Tuesday.

"I really want three, yeah. So, you agreed, right?" Bushnell replied.

Higgins joked: "I did agree, just to be safe."

The now-public couple told the Associated Press this week that they are solid after America watched Higgins profess his love for both Bushnell and his runner-up, JoJo Fletcher. "But if this ends right now and we go back to normal, both of us are beyond happy," Bushnell said.
