Can you believe this? After all this time of saying she doesn’t want more kids, Bethenny admits that her mind may be changing!
Bethenny Frankel is warming up to the idea of having more kids and is actually discussing having another with her husband, Jason Hoppy! “We’re not trying for another [yet],” the 40-year-old Bethenny Getting Married? star tells HollyBaby.com today (Jan. 25) exclusively at the Pampers Gifts to Grow Spa Day at Oasis Day Spa in NYC. “But, we are talking about [having] another. I’m somewhat open to it!”
Since Bethenny gave birth to her 8-month-old daughter Bryn Hoppy on May 8, she has been adamant about not wanting to have more kids. But it seems that her mind may be changing, especially after seeing everything that baby Bryn has accomplished.
“She has a tooth now,” Bethenny gushes. “She’s not drooling everywhere, [just] chews on frozen toys. She’s very good. She sleeps through the night. She’s a happy, happy baby. She’s not really a big complainer. She’s just happy. The first minute I met her, I said, ‘She’s going to be a nice girl.’”
Bethenny also tells us all about how she introduced Bryn to her dog Cookie Frankel-Hoppy. “She and Cookie — they love each other,” Bethenny laughs. “They take care of each other. Cookie’s her protector.”
It can be tricky to introduce a new baby into a home where before the baby, the dog was the only child. “Most people put the baby down and then go love the dog because they feel guilty,” Bethenny explains. “You have to love both at the same time otherwise the dog will feel like when you put the baby down, ‘Now it’s my time — I get sloppy seconds.’ You [can also] bring the blanket home from the hospital and give the dog the scent. It’s more about loving them both at the same time and that’s hard.”
Bethenny plans to address more motherhood issues in her upcoming book called, The Place of Yes. Be sure to pick it up when it hits stores on March 22!
