Former Bachelorette Clare Crawley’s Quotes About Family Prove She’ll Make a Great Mom

So much love to give! Former Bachelorette Clare Crawley’s quotes about family and kids prove she was ready to start a life with ex-fiance Dale Moss before their unexpected split. The season 16 star doesn’t have children, but she is the mom of two precious dogs and would make an amazing mama.   

When fans first met Clare, 39, on Juan Pablo Galavis’ season of The Bachelor in 2014, she stepped out of the limo with a fake baby bump under her dress. “I know you have a daughter, and I know you want more children, and I was thinking maybe adding to it!” she said to the father of one at the time.

Life & Style exclusively broke the news on July 30 that Clare wanted to “quit” season 16 after just 12 days because she had “fallen in love” with Dale. Viewers watched their love story unfold the first few weeks of the season, and it ended with the former football player popping the question. It seemed like the pair wanted the same things, and fans hoped it would work out despite their unorthodox beginnings.

Dale opened up about his desire to be a father on September 12, 2020, after a fan asked where he sees himself in five years during an Instagram Q&A.

“In the next five years, I will be a leading sports and entertainment host, a producer and successful entrepreneur, telling the most amazing stories ever, and I’ll be a father,” the South Dakota native said at the time.

Unfortunately, that won’t be happening with Clare. On January 19 he revealed they decided to break up. “I wanted to share with you all that Clare and I have decided to go our separate ways. We appreciate the love and support we’ve received from so many people, but this is the healthiest decision for both of us at this time,” he wrote on Instagram. “We strongly believe in leading with love and always remaining true to oneself — something our families have taught and instilled in us throughout our lives. We only hope the best things for one another.”

Clare’s confirmation was a little less positive. “I was made aware of a ‘mutual’ statement at the same time you all were, so I’ve needed some time to really digest this,” she said on January 21. “Speaking for myself, my intentions with this relationship have always been very clear, so the truth is I am crushed.”

“I may not have the answers but I do know this — I will continue to show up, stand by my word and be committed to love,” she concluded.

There’s no denying Clare has a lot of love to give. Keep scrolling to see her quotes about family and children!
