The news of her pregnancy, which is just two months along, leaked a little earlier than she’d hoped due to some buzz on Perez Hilton: “It’s premature to be telling people this,” she told PEOPLE while fighting back tears. “It’s not like, ‘Did I Get Botox’ It’s not the way I wanted it to get out. I haven’t even gone through my first trimester. We haven’t even heard the heartbeat. My [fiancé’s] parents didn’t even know.”
Though the 38-year-old reality star had hoped to keep her news secret a little while longer, she and Jason are “both so excited”, but because it’s so early she is “praying everything is okay”.
The Housewives’ star admits that, at less than two months pregnant, her appetite has already started to change: “I’m hungry in a way that is not negotiable. I’m not eating tremendous amount[s] but if I am hungry, I will stab someone for food.”
She goes on to say that she ate a jar of pickles before she’d even taken a pregnancy test: “That’s so cliché. I just want salt. Salt on everything.”
Best wishes to Bethenny for a healthy pregnancy!
