Bachelor Clayton Echard Baby Drama Explained

The Bachelor’s Clayton Echard finds himself embroiled in a legal and personal dispute as allegations of fathering unborn twins and a contentious paternity test demand take center stage. With court documents and a series of events unfolding, the situation has sparked intense debate and curiosity among fans and the public alike.

Clayton Echard Relationship

A 33-year-old woman has come forward, alleging that Clayton Echard fathered her unborn twins after a one-night stand. According to court documents, she claims to have engaged in sexual activity with Echard on May 20, 2023. Her assertion is based on the fact that she hadn’t been involved with anyone else since March 2022. After taking two at-home pregnancy tests, she visited an urgent care facility on June 1, where it was confirmed that she was expecting twins due in February.

Clayton Echard Pregnancy

The anonymous woman contends that she provided Echard with the test results in June, but he initially doubted her pregnancy claims. However, after an in-person test, he allegedly acknowledged the truth and agreed to a paternity test in August, for which she put down a $725 deposit. Echard’s subsequent refusal to proceed with the test led to a legal standoff.

Clayton Echard, on the other hand, has asserted his innocence throughout this ordeal. He claims to have repeatedly requested a paternity test, which the woman was supposed to pay for, to resolve her allegations. Echard has strongly denied ever having sexual intercourse with the woman and has labeled the case “groundless and lacking in merit.” He even requested that he be awarded attorney fees.

Clayton Echard Paternity Test Results

The parties involved were scheduled to appear in court on September 28 for an early resolution conference. The details of the court appearance are not yet known but Clayton did post on his Instagram story two days ago saying that Laura took a home test and if the “test comes back “inconclusive” it would mean little-to-no fetus was able to be detected.” The test results are expected to be back on Monday or Tuesday of Next week (October 9th/10th).
