Candiace Dillard Bassett has now shared the big news telling ET, “I am about 13 weeks … so just about into the second trimester. It’s been weird, but also really wonderful, I think, to keep it kind of to ourselves to this point.”

Candiace notes that she hasn’t told many people but immediate family saying, “Our immediate family knows, my mom — I told my mom on her birthday in February — my dad knows, [Chris’] parents know, my siblings know and that is my core, best friend group, but outside of that it’s just been, like, kind of quietly just growing a bun”

Candiace Dillard Bassett opens up about when she would know she was ready explaining, “I always wondered, like, how would I know when I was ready? And I always felt like a part of my anxiety was that I wasn’t sure that I would know, and when I knew, it was undeniable. I kind of woke up and realized that I was never going to be 100 percent ready. I just had to … trust the process and trust my doctors and stop being afraid and just do it. So once we decided together that we were going to do that — together — it just was kind of all moving by faith from there.”

Candiace reveals she underwent implantation in January, “Our doctor called us at 8 a.m. and she tells us that we’re pregnant,” Candiace shares. “We waited and waited and waited all this time, so to finally hear that, after those two weeks, the process has worked after a year of doing the shots. … I did two rounds of egg retrieval. To do the shots in your stomach, I had to do the shots in my bum bum every day — which was not always fun — and to finally have it all pay off was amazing.”

Candiace says she looks forward to the mom community adding, “I’m looking forward to the community, the mom community. It’s a space I’ve kind of been peering into from the outside, most of my friends and my cousins have kids. I’ve helped raise and change diapers and babysit all of my cousins’ kids, so it’s just gonna be fun to be a part of that community and, you know, to learn and grow as a member now.”

Candiace may come back to the Real Housewives of Potomac after she gives birth as she announced she isn’t gone for good, “This is not a farewell, but a ‘see you later.’ “
