Real Housewives of Potomac star Monique Samuels is pregnant with her third child!
On Sunday Monique announced her pregnancy and happily showed off her baby bump.
“I’m way too happy to be bothered… I’m full of life… LITERALLY #RHOP #moniquesamuels #realhousewivesofpotomac #blessed #partyofFive #unbothered,” the RHOP star captioned a video showing off her growing baby bump.
This happy news comes after Monique suffered a devastating miscarriage last year.
Earlier this year Monique opened up about the loss and revealed that two days before she filmed the RHOP season 2 reunion she suffered a miscarriage.
“It definitely caught us off-guard. I was thinking I would go there and share some awesome news with all the ladies, and I didn’t because I didn’t want to talk about it at that time,” Monique told The Daily Dish.“It was almost like I felt like I was doing something wrong. I felt like, was I not prepared? Was my body not prepared for this? So it was nonstop, and I felt like that is probably part of what contributed to the miscarriage, just being so busy, not getting proper sleep, not taking care of myself properly, all of the things that I thought I did right, I realized, no, you can be better. You’re not as balanced as you thought you were.”
She continued, “It taught me not to take things for granted and to think that I’m so special, that something like that can’t happen to me. I just try to look at the positive in any situation and say obviously God knew what was best at that time. So now moving forward, I’ll make sure I’m more prepared so when the time comes again, we’ll be ready, and I’ll try not to be as nervous being that we’ve experienced that. I can only imagine if and when we get pregnant again, just the thought of it possibly happening again, just trying to shut that from my mind. We’re never not trying, but we’re trying. If it happens, it happens. Every now and then, we get a little undisciplined. So if it happens, great, if it doesn’t, we’ll see what was meant to be.”
Well, it looks like Monique got her wish and that this pregnancy is “meant to be” for the Samuels! I’m excited to see the Samuels grow to a “party of 5.”
Congrats to Monique and her family!
