Sean and Catherine Lowe Reveal Baby #2 Will Be Here “in the Next Year” — Exclusive
So you’d imagine they’d want another one just like him, right?
It sounds like that’s a definite yes, though they’ve certainly got their hands full right now.
Wetpaint spoke with the couple this week after they teamed up with Chase Marriott Rewards Credit Card to give away $500 Marriott gift cards to 10 winners to give them some much needed “me time” — something the couple knows all about.
In fact, they recently took a staycation to the Adolphus Hotel in downtown Dallas. They even took Samuel with them!
“It was a chance for us to kind of unwind, order room service, hang out by the pool,” Sean states. “Just disconnect from our normal everyday routines.”
To unwind, Catherine also likes getting massages and watching Real Housewives, while Sean cuts out an hour or two a day to “relax” at the gym.
That R&R is important for parents of a soon-to-be toddler, though the former Bachelor says adding to their family has only helped their relationship.
“As great as babies are and as much as you love them, sometimes they can be the detriment of your marriage because you kind of forget about your spouse at times,” he starts, before adding that “that hasn’t been the case” for them.
He adds, “I look at the way Catherine cares for Samuel and all the work she puts into raising this little boy and the sacrifices she makes. It makes me appreciate her so much more.
“If anything I think that it has strengthened our marriage.”
The 33-year-old admits they’ve also become “a little more patient” with one another, while allowing that his wife does more in the baby department than he does.
“I can’t give her a hard time if she leaves her clothes all over the closet floor because well, she’s been busting her butt all day to take care of Samuel,” the Texas native reasons.
Seems like things are going relatively smoothly for the pair in their new life as parents, so you’d be right to assume another Baby Lowe will be coming soon.
“It was important to me to have siblings that were close together so it’s definitely on our radar,” the 31-year-old gal shares.
That being said, they haven’t “solidified” anything when it comes to timelines — though she points out their firstborn “wasn’t planned” either.
She explains, “We don’t really want to work ourselves up about that because it leads to hardship in actually getting pregnant.”
The new mama goes on to gush about how much the couple is enjoying their life as it is right now, and how well they’ve adjusted into this new lifestyle.
“Now we’re in the groove with our first baby so, I mean, it could come on the sooner side,” she reveals.
“In the next year Samuel will have a sibling.”
As for how many more children they’d like, Cat points out that she had originally planned for five, though she recognizes that’s a lot.
The former reality star — who grew up with two sisters — continues, “I’ve always just been somebody who wanted a big family because of the camaraderie and the memories… That makes me really excited.”
If they do have five children, the plan has been to “have three natural then adopt two,” but the Lowes are ready for that to possibly change.
“The next one could be twins and then we’d have to figure it out or maybe they’re both boys and I want a girl,” the Seattle native muses.
She concludes, “Family planning is a really big responsibility. We’re just taking this awesome child and hoping the next one will be just as wonderful.”
In the meantime, the duo has plenty to keep them busy, including their successful furniture line with Wayfair, Home by Sean & Catherine Lowe, which the Dancing With the Stars alum calls “a really fun undertaking.”
“We’re going to continue to work on that and expand the line and come out with new projects,” he teases. “Sofas, chairs, and everything else.”
We can’t wait to see what comes next from the Lowes — both personally and professionally.
