I’m Ready for Sleep­less Nights!

BACH­E­LOR BABY ON THE WAY! The re­al­ity TV star says he’s look­ing for­ward to dirty di­a­pers and mid­night feed­ings

In Touch (USA) - - News Flash -

Sean Lowe has two words for the sleep de­pri­va­tion headed his way once his wife of two years, Cather­ine, 30, gives birth to their first child: Bring it! “At the end of the day, it’s all about hav­ing a happy, healthy baby, and if the baby needs us to wake up ev­ery few hours, that’s just what we’ll have to do,” the sea­son 17 Bach­e­lor alum tells In Touch. “Hope­fully, af­ter a cou­ple of years, we’ll catch up!” Here, the first-time dad-to-be, 32, talks about baby names, putting on sym­pa­thy weight and his dream celebrity sit­ter.

Cather­ine’s due any day now — are you ner­vous? SL: No, I don’t re­ally get ner­vous about any­thing. I’m ex­cited — I can’t wait for the baby to fall asleep on my chest. And, lo­gis­ti­cally, hu­mans have ex­isted for mil­lions of years — so surely Cather­ine and I can fig­ure it out.

Ha, right. Have you de­cided on a name yet? SL: We ac­tu­ally came up with a boy’s name three years ago when we were dat­ing on The Bach­e­lor; for a girl we still go back and forth. It’s still a se­cret but I did have to let my mom know that it’s not a crazy or wacky name — she’ll be able to pro­nounce it. [ Laughs]

Are you hop­ing for a boy or girl? SL: I’m lean­ing for a boy, be­cause I’m pic­tur­ing us throw­ing a base­ball in our back­yard. I also know that if we have a girl, I will be wrapped around her fin­ger from the sec­ond she’s born.

Who will be the tougher par­ent? SL: Cather­ine will def­i­nitely be the dis­ci­plinar­ian. I don’t have it in me. I won’t let them get away with ev­ery­thing, but I want to be the fun dad. do you think your lives will change? SL: We live a pretty spon­ta­neous, ex­cit­ing life and do a lot of trav­el­ing. So we won’t be able to jet off on va­ca­tion any­more. But that’s OK! We’d rather be home with the baby.

How many kids do you want ul­ti­mately? SL: Cather­ine wants to have three bi­o­log­i­cal chil­dren and adopt two; I think I’d be happy with three or four. We’ll have to see!

A lot of hus­bands gain sym­pa­thy weight when their wives are preg­nant — have you? SL: A lit­tle! Our pizza con­sump­tion has def­i­nitely in­creased quite a bit.

You just moved into a new house in Dal­las … SL: Yes, we ran out of room! We ac­tu­ally just part­nered with SpareFoot [a search site for stor­age op­tions], which is great. Cather­ine has so many clothes, and we’ve got­ten a lot of baby presents, even from strangers, which is pretty awe­some. So they helped us store a lot of stuff.

You guys were on sea­son four of

Mar­riage Boot Camp: Re­al­ity Stars

… any re­grets? SL: The coun­selors were great, and any re­la­tion­ship can ben­e­fit from coun­sel­ing, but we knew the moment we walked on set we were out of place. Way too much drama.

Are you watch­ing Jojo Fletcher’s sea­son of The Bach­e­lorette? SL: Our fa­vorite thing to do is watch The Bach­e­lor on Mon­days. When you’ve been on the show, you get the lib­erty of mak­ing fun of it. [ Laughs] I love watch­ing the guys say ridicu­lous things and put them­selves in awk­ward sit­u­a­tions. I ap­pre­ci­ate the hu­mor on the show much more than the ac­tual love por­tion! ◼

BUN IN THE OVEN “I just know she’ll be the great­est mom in the world,” Sean raves of wife Cather­ine. PAR­ENT­ING PREP “I’ve never changed a di­a­per be­fore. But I clean up my dog’s poop all the time, so maybe that’s pre­pared me a lit­tle bit!” laughs Sean.
