Bri Springs Parents: Mother and Father
A lot of people have been asking about Bri’s family background.
Springs was born to teenage parents. Her mother’s name is Lauren Stoppelbein. She’s 38 years old today.
Lauren was only 13 years old when she got pregnant with Bri.
There’s not much that’s known about Bri’s father apart from the fact that she did not have a father figure while growing up.
He was with Springs for some part of her life, but according to her, he was most of an absent dad her whole life.
While on a dinner date with Matt on the show, Bri stated her mother’s standing during pregnancy.
For most of Lauren’s teenage and adult life, she made Bri her priority.
“My mom raised me as a single mom. She got pregnant with me when she was 13. So her priority was me her whole life.”
Bri also revealed how her mother and grandmother took care of her and made countless sacrifices for her welfare.
The name of her father still remains a mystery to many people. According to Springs, her father came from a black ethnic background.
His father and mother separated before she was born.
Currently, Lauren Stoppelbein is reportedly in a relationship with Sahba Joe Farivar.
The couple welcomed their child, a son, on August 3, 2020.

What Is Bri Springs’ Job?
One of the things that captivated viewers about Bri, apart from her charm, is her profession.
Chris Harrison, the show’s host, announced that Bri worked as a communications manager for a very high-end tech company.
Things sounded interesting when Chris said that he was not allowed to reveal the company’s identity but that it’s a very big one.
“Bri works for a tech company. I’m not allowed to say what tech company, and I don’t want to put her job in jeopardy. But it is a big one. So much so because she almost wasn’t on the show because she obviously didn’t want to give up this amazing job.”
We believe that Bri is working for Facebook. That’s because a lot of things tie her towards working for Facebook.
She has many friends who work for Facebook in one way or the other.
Another reason why we believe that Facebook employs Bri is because of the fact that she’s already verified on Instagram. More regarding this subject later as there are polarizing remarks on this matter.

Bri went through an ordeal most recently when someone allegedly hacked her Instagram and locked her out.
As a result, Springs got control over her Instagram after a couple of days and then got that verified tick as well.
The reason why this subject is a little controversial and polarizing is that many fans believe this was an intentional move.
Fans and keen followers believe that Bri took a shortcut towards getting herself verified on Instagram.
With only mere 30k+ followers at that time, Bri received the verified tick on her official Instagram account.
Reportedly, Bri said that someone was trying to pretend to be her, thus leading to the hack.
But, fans have a different theory. Many believe that Bri used this alleged hack as leverage to get verified.
She has over 60k followers today and rapidly growing in numbers as well.
Another bizarre theory is that Bri has contacts in Facebook, which owns Instagram, who could get her verified. Given the fact that she works at Facebook.
Let us know in the comments below how you feel about this whole scenario.
Why She Joined Bachelor
There’s a particular reason why Bri joined as a contestant for The Bachelor, apart from Matt’s looks and charm.
She joined The Bachelor primarily because she wanted to find a person with whom she could build her life, have a home.
During quarantine, Bri found out that her mother, Lauren was pregnant with her partner. While happy for her mother, who finally found someone after avoiding dating since Bri was born, she also felt an emptiness.
Bri said that her mother was starting a family with her fiance, a family of which she didn’t physically feel a part of.
“In quarantine, I learned my mom was pregnant, and she was going to have a baby, and she has a fiancé, and she’s going to start this new family that I’m not, like, physically a part of. There was a moment in time when I was like, ‘I don’t feel like I have a home to go to anymore.’”
“Now that my mom has her home and her family, where’s my home, and where’s my family?”
Bri revealed how she always gravitated towards friends who had big families. She envied those friends and wanted to have what they have, a family.
She further revealed that in a relationship, she wants that one person who she could feel like, is her family.

Matt responded with,
“I appreciate that, thank you. I won’t let you down.”
