Oh, baby is all Jacqueline Laurita is thinking about these days as she impatiently awaits the arrival of her first grandchild. The soon-to-be glam-ma can’t wait to meet the newest addition to her family, so it’s no surprise that Jacqueline and her pregnant daughter Ashlee are dishing all their baby news.
“It’s pretty amazing [Ashlee’s pregnancy], and we didn’t say anything at first because she had other exciting news first. She had an engagement which is pretty amazing, and then we’re just so excited for the baby, oh my God,” Jacqueline reveals to Radar.
Not surprisingly Jacqueline is living vicariously through her daughter admitting,“I can’t wait. I keep saying I’m using her uterus now that mine is closed, and I’m so excited!”
While RHONJ fans were shocked about Ashlee’s pregnancy and her ability to parent, the Laurita family is super excited, including Ashlee’s younger brothers.
“CJ is so excited.Nicholas hasn’t really expressed it yet. I don’t know if he can understand it yet, but I’m excited to see how he’ll react to the baby. We’re prepping him. CJ is excited. He wanted a nephew, and she’s having a boy.”
Ashlee, who’s due in two months, says she can’t wait to meet her little boy.
“I’m at the point where I’m more anxious than anything. I just want to meet him! Anytime he kicks me, I just — I can’t wait to see what he looks like and hold him,” Ashlee says.
Despite being almost ready to pop, Ashlee isn’t ready to name her baby yet.
“When we started talking about baby names we picked out the girl’s name like right away, and then, of course, like a week later we found out we were having a boy! We have not been able to decide on a boy’s name yet, but we have a few names on the list.”
Although Ashlee’s known for her, crazy and erratic, social media posts, she reveals she may not be rushing to post pictures of her baby(insert major, major eye roll). Yeah, so she can get an “exclusive” and be paid to show the first photos of her kid, I’m sure.
“I think we might reveal him on the reunion, but we’ll see,” Ashlee admits.
I wish Ashlee lot’s of luck with parenting and hopes she has a healthy baby, but I honestly can’t see her as a mom. Hopefully, motherhood helps her grow up and become more adult like. Sometimes it seems like she’s still a teenager.
