Despite being thrilled for her first grandchild, Caroline admits that Lauren isn’t ready to be a mom. To be fair, she says no one is ever ready to be a mom and until the baby comes you have no idea what you’re in for.
Speaking with Bravo’s Daily Dish , Caroline states Lauren is excited but no exactly prepared:
“You’re never ready to be a parent. You never put down on paper and say, ‘You know what? Now’s good. Let’s do it now,’ because you will never be ready because you are never prepared for how your life is gonna change.”
“After having said that, do I think they’re capable of raising a child in the best way that you would hope? Absolutely. They both have wonderful qualities about them. They’re very nurturing. Vito’s gonna be a phenomenal father. Lauren, of course, is gonna be a great mom. Are they gonna stumble and fall sometimes is a guarantee because I think every new parent does. But I think that it’s gonna be really fun to watch. It’s gonna be really, really fun to watch.”
Hm…is she hinting that they are possibly be getting a spin off or just that the baby is going to be a major part of Manzo’d With Children?
Despite being a traditional Italian mom, Caroline insists she never put pressure on the newlyweds to have a baby (hm..not sure if I believe that 100% Caroline!)
“for me, it was always when God’s will, that’s when she was gonna have a baby. I never said to her, ‘I want a grandchild.’ I never, never said that to her because when it happens, it happens.”
On the other hand, Al Manzo has been pushing a little harder as he can’t wait to be the grandfather that spoils the baby. Caroline added:
“this is something he’s talked about our entire married life. You know, ‘When are we having grandchildren? Are we having grandchildren?’ He’s very, very proud.”
Caroline also added she will be called the traditional ‘Grandma’ (as opposed to Jacqueline’s ‘Glam-ma’)
Caroline insists this baby is going to be incrediably loved, and that’s something I never doubted:
“This baby is a very lucky baby because the Scalia’s are even such wonderful people. It’s a very, very lucky baby.”
We can’t wait to see the first Manzo baby as we’ve seen Lauren and Vito’s relationship pretty much from the beginning.
