Babies on the brain! Rachel Lindsay and her husband, Bryan Abasolo, are on the same page when it comes to starting a family. “A lot of people are, like, ‘Um, you said you were going to start.’ We do. We want to,” the former Bachelorette, 35, exclusively tells Life & Style. “I know there’s no perfect time and we have our own timeline, but it’s definitely something we still want to do.”
Rachel and Bryan, 40, who got engaged on The Bachelorette in 2017 and later tied the knot in 2019, celebrated their wedding anniversary on August 24. “I can’t believe it’s already been a year. Like, it seems long, but it seems very short at the same time,” says the Texas native.
To celebrate the last 365 days, the lovebirds are headed on a tropical vacation. “We’re going to go to Aruba and celebrate and get away and just, you know, like detach from everything and everybody and just immerse ourselves in one another,” Lindsay explains. “We need this time together. I mean, we’ve been spending a lot of time, but you know, in the apartment.”
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, Rachel and Bryan were forced to adjust their day-to-day life, but in the end, the married pair is stronger than ever! “It’s been fantastic because I traveled so much that this is the first time we’ve had this routine,” Lindsay recalls while promoting season 2 of Ghosted on MTV, premiering on Wednesday, September 2.
“He wakes up, he goes to work — he’s still been working — I work from home,” the ABC alum details, referring to Bryan’s job as a chiropractor. “I cook, we watch movies together, a new series at night. You know, it’s a repeat thing. It’s been nice to have that normalcy in our relationship and that sense of normalcy and a routine. I loved it.”
Ultimately, Lindsay credits her relationship “making it out of quarantine” to the couple’s “strong foundation.”
Be sure to catch Lindsay on season 2 of Ghosted on MTV on Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET.
