Bachelor 13 lovebirds Jason and Molly Mesnick are expecting their first child together this March, and that means Molly’s due date is getting closer and closer!
The couple, who are already proud parents of Jason’s 7-year-old son, Tye, have decided wait and keep their baby’s gender be a surprise, but that doesn’t mean they’re not thinking about baby names.
Speaking with Wetpaint Entertainment, Jason and Molly shared a couple of their baby name ideas, and gave us the inside scoop about how excited Tye is to have a new little brother or sister.
Has the pregnancy been easy?
Molly: Uh, relatively. I was sick in the beginning and that went away and I got a big surge of energy and that’s starting to kind of go away but so far, so good.
How have you been helping her during this time, Jason?
Jason: That’s a good question. I’m trying to make sure she’s healthy, and the baby’s healthy. That’s my goal.
Have you guys discussed baby names?
Molly: We’ve talked about it a little bit. Nothing’s final yet.
Boy or girl?
Molly: We don’t know.
Rose would be a good name!
Molly: [Joking] Rose if it’s a girl, Chris Harrison if it’s a boy.
When are you due?
How is Ty reacting to having a new addition?
Jason: He’s excited. I think the question is, what is he going to be like at 2 in the morning when he hears crying in the room next door to him, and then we’ll find out. But he’s excited.
Have you prepared him, telling him when this is happening?
Jason: As much as we can.
Molly: Because he’s older, he understands a little bit more so it’s easier to actually talk to him about it and him actually understand what we’re saying so we try to keep him in the loop as much as possible with the things that are going on. We don’t want it to be a huge shocker for him.
Jason: He’s a good kid. He understands his emotions pretty well so when he has questions, he’s pretty good about asking them.
