Looks like there’s a shotgun wedding coming to Skinny City after all. Bethenny Frankel, who announced her engagement to boyfriend of 11 months Jason Hoppy last weekend, is approximately two months pregnant with her first child.
Although the star of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of New York City has denied persistent reports of beans baking in her oven for weeks now, on Monday, a scoop from celebrity snitch Perez Hilton divulged all the deets on Beth’s new baby, forcing the culinary expert to reveal news of the pregnancy sooner than she’d hoped to.
“It’s premature to be telling people this,” the spitfire celebrity chef cried to PEOPLE this afternoon.
Actually, she’s right — the risk of miscarriage is high in the first trimester. Every woman should have the right to wait until she is at least three months along to reveal the news publicly. Nevertheless, congrats to Bethenny.
Bethenny, 38, will be featured in a reality spinoff on Bravo premiering next year.
