Bethenny Frankel who just became engaged to Jason Hoppy earlier this month now confirms she is pregnant with her first child! Read more on Bethenny Frankel’s pregnancy news below.
Bethenny Frankel, “The Real Housewives of New York City” star, had really hoped to hold off until she was further along to announce her pregnancy but the online rumors prompted her to make the announcement. “It’s premature to be telling people this,” she tells People magazine.
Frankel, 38, truly wanted to keep the news private for just a bit longer. “It’s not like, ‘Did I get Botox?’ It’s not the way I wanted it to get out,” she says. “I haven’t even gone through my first trimester. We haven’t even heard the heartbeat. My (fiancé’s) parents didn’t even know.”
But Bethenny says she and Jason are “both so excited.” And she adds, “I am praying everything is OK but I don’t know that yet.”
Bethenny met Jason at the nightclub Tenjune just 11 months ago and says she’s thrilled to have found The One. “We were both complete players. We never thought we would find the right person.”
On getting pregnant before marriage she says, “I’m no spring chicken. I didn’t think it was going to happen right away. Because of my age, sometimes we weren’t totally careful.”
But she admits, “I got to be honest, we are both feeling kind of proud of ourselves. We are both 38 and we were like, ‘Listen, your fish can swim and I am fertile.’ So that’s exciting.”
The couple plans to marry before the baby comes along. Frankel states, “Because of my age, it’s not like I was going to meet a boy, and then be engaged for a year and then be married for a year before we started trying (to have kids) … I’d be 45.” She describes the way things have unfolded as “like the Triple Crown. I got engaged, we got pregnant and we’re gonna get married. It’s a miracle.”
Bethenny is just two months into the pregnancy but says her appetite has already changed.
“I’m hungry in a way that is not negotiable,” she says. “I’m not eating tremendous amount but if I am hungry, I will stab someone for food.”
She even ate a jar of pickles before she’d taken her pregnancy test. “That’s so cliché,” she says. “I just want salt. Salt on everything.”
