RHOP alum, Candiace Dillard Bassett, is pregnant! She and Chris Bassett are expecting their first baby together. This will be Candiace’s first child and Chris’s fourth.

Candiace announced that she’s pregnant just after the Real Housewife of Potomac finale wrapped:

The Bravo TV alum spoke exclusively with ETonline.com. “I am about 13 weeks … so just about into the second trimester! It’s been weird,” explained the Candiace of being pregnant, “but also really wonderful, I think, to keep it kind of to ourselves” … and off of RHOP. “Our immediate family knows, my mom — I told my mom on her birthday in February — my dad knows, [Chris’s] 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’s pregnancy journey:

Bravoholics of are familiar with Candiace and Chris’s IVF journey and the Drive Back singer’s readiness to become a mother. “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.”

“Our doctor called us at 8 a.m. and she tells us that we’re pregnant,” detailed Candiace, who recently announced her departure from RHOP. “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.”

The former RHOP stars are waiting to find out the gender of their first baby. “So, the doctors know,” Chris explains. “We did all the tests. Obviously, we wanted something healthy … and I was like, listen, let’s just take the highest graded egg and we’ll put it in there, and this is the one surprise of this whole experience, that we don’t know yet.” The couple will, however, learn their baby’s gender before their birth.
