Doesn’t it seem like just yesterday that we learned Audrey and Jeremy Roloff were expecting their first child?
How are we supposed to relish reality star pregnancies when they just move so darn fast?!
In reality, we’ve known about Audrey’s pregnancy for a good while now, but still, with all the things this family has been up to lately, it’s easy to get overwhelmed.
Molly had her wedding earlier this month, and Jacob has been working his way back into the family spotlight.
And that’s not even touching on the birth of the insanely precious Jackson …
But now it looks like things are settling down a bit, and with Audrey’s due date just days away — it’s September 1st!!! — all Roloff-loving eyes are on her.
So thank goodness she gave this in-depth interview all about the impending birth of her baby, right?!
About the little angel’s upcoming arrival, she says “I’d say we’re very excited, but there are definitely some nerves that come along with it!”
“At this point, we’re just trying to relax and bring some calm back into our life.”
She says that Jeremy “has the house almost wrapped up,” so “now we’re looking forward to spending these last few days just the two of us.”
Speaking of Jeremy, Audrey explains that “One of the best things about big milestones in life is being able to do them alongside your spouse.”
“Jeremy has been so patient with me during this process. I really couldn’t imagine doing it without him.”
To give an example of the kind of doting soon-to-be father he’s been, she says “I have full confidence that when I need something, or even just want a scoop of ice cream, that he’ll be off the couch and getting it before I finish my sentence.”
“I feel loved and am thankful for a husband like Jeremy.”
But that adorable little story doesn’t mean she’s been spending her time asking her husband for ice cream!
She says that she hasn’t really had any cravings during her pregnancy, except that “I craved sour candy in the beginning and have consistently craved sparking drinks.”
Still, it’s nice to know that Jeremy is there for her if she does decide she needs anything!
He’s not the only one, either — don’t forget, for a while there, she and her sister-in-law, Tori, were pregnant at the same time.
“It’s been so fun being able to experience this season of life alongside Tori,” she says.
“She and Zach are always so willing to answer any question we may have, or have us over to hang with Jackson and talk.”
Sharing this time together has been “great,” she says, “and our sister bond is definitely strengthening through this process.”
As close as they are, though, of course they won’t be in the delivery room when Audrey has the baby.
“At this point,” she reveals, “I’m planning on it only being our midwife, Jeremy and our doula. We will have family and friends outside anxiously waiting, I’m sure!”
She also says that “We’ve got one name in mind that we really like, but haven’t fully committed on it yet!”
“We’ll probably name her once we see her beautiful face!”
We can’t wait to see her beautiful face either, and we’re sure they’ll pick a beautiful name to match!
Congrats again, Roloffs!
