The Real Housewives of New York City and Bethenny Getting Married star is getting to know her newborn daughter — and finding that they have a lot in common!
Bethenny Frankel tells it like it is, even when it comes to her 2-month-old daughter, Brynn. In an interview with Life & Style, the reality TV star says she can already see that her little girl is a lot like her. “She likes it the way she likes it,” Bethenny says. “She doesn’t want to be awakened, and she wants to eat when she wants to eat. She’s kind of like me — she’s a little bit of a pain in the ass!”
Like any other new mom, the 39-year-old can’t get enough of her daughter and is convinced that there’s nothing as magical as motherhood. “It’s every cliché, everything everyone tells you. You stare at your child, she smiles at you and knows who you are and needs you. It’s the most unbelievable thing in the world and makes everything else not matter.”
And while she’s loving every moment — and knows her husband, Jason Hoppy, wants to have more kids — Bethenny’s in no rush to have baby no. 2. “I’ve been kind of living in the moment,” she says. “Things have been going really well, and I have to learn how to balance work and motherhood. Jason wants to have more children, so it’s definitely a conversation, but we don’t know yet.”
Still, with her 40th birthday around the corner, Bethenny knows she can’t wait too long. “We’re no spring chickens either! I take it day by day. I’m not 25, so I don’t have all the options in the world. I have to make a decision somewhat soon. But I’m just so in love with Bryn right now that I want to focus completely on her.”
The Real Housewife admits her priorities have changed when it comes to what she’s wearing when she leaves the house. “You’re so happy that your body’s back,” she says of her lack of designer duds, “you’ll wear a garbage bag.”
And speaking of that body, the workouts that used to be a staple of her day now take a back seat to other necessities, like getting some much-needed sleep. “Do what you can when you can,” she advises other new moms. “Today I got to do 30 minutes. In my old life I would not have been happy with that, but now I look at the glass as half full. When I have the time, I’ll do it.”
