During a new interview on HollywoodLife’s podcast, the former Bachelorette who is now married to Bryan Abasolo, opened up about their plans to start a family! That being said, she shared with all her fans out there that they have already discussed having a baby together and it turns out that they would love to start trying this summer!
However, it turns out that this conversation happened half a year ago so the timeline has actually changed in the meantime due to the coronavirus, COVID-19 pandemic.
‘We had talked about starting this summer. We were like, ‘OK, let’s officially start this summer. I have been one of those people who has really been anal about it [the COVID-19 virus].’
Of course, the reality TV star was really cautious when it comes to the spread of the virus but she did mention that she is a bit more relaxed these days after protesting for the Black Lives Matter movement.
Still, she and her husband made sure to wear protective masks when they joined the many protesters in Miami earlier this month.
But while protesting for equality and against police brutality seems like a worthy cause to risk getting the virus for, getting pregnant can wait!
The Bachelor Nation star stressed that being careful with the timing based on the pandemic is still something they are mindful of.
Still, they would rather not wait too long either.
‘So once COVID kind of happened, we’re just kind of like, ‘Let’s just wait and see…how this all pans out.’ [But] I know so many people who are pregnant, just got pregnant or [are] about to have children. It doesn’t seem to affect them, so sooner than later. But the plan was this summer we were going to, you know, [to] start trying. So we’ll see,’ Rachel told the news outlet.
