While the Vanderpump Rules couple was previously waiting to start trying for a baby due to their scheduled wedding in October, Schroeder has since confirmed to Us Weekly that she and her fiancé have been less than careful when it comes to pregnancy prevention in the weeks since quarantine began.
“We’ve been reckless,” she admitted. “Listen, I wouldn’t be mad.”
According to Clark, who proposed to Schroeder in July, the thought of having a baby is still kind of scary due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As he explained, he wouldn’t be able to be in the hospital when Schroeder delivered if the crisis was still happening and that’s something he needed to take into consideration.
Schroeder and Clark had been planning to delay their family plans until after tying the knot but for years, Schroeder has made it quite clear that she is excited about the possibility of becoming a mom. In fact, she seems to be more excited about starting a family than she is about becoming a wife.
Before Clark got down on one knee last summer and proposed, Schroeder was trying to get pregnant because she believed a proposal would not be happening anytime soon. Then, after she became engaged during filming on the eighth season of Vanderpump Rules, she decided she would quit trying for a baby so she could fit into her wedding dress and drink at her nuptials.
Just prior to Clark’s proposal, Schroeder said she was ready to have a baby.
“I know I want to be a mom, so I would rather get knocked up before I waited to have a wedding. It’s powerful to let women know, if that’s something that you want, you don’t have to wait to get married,” she explained.
At the time, Schroeder said Clark was “on the same page” as she was in regard to their plans for a family.
As The Inquisitr previously reported, Schroeder opened up about her wedding at the end of last month during an interview with Entertainment Tonight, explaining that — while they haven’t postponed their wedding yet — they have accepted the fact that they may need to do so in the coming weeks or months.
“We’ve come to peace with it, that it might not happen and, you know, I get it. It’s happening to so many people,” she shared.
