They’ll Have Their Hands Full
Catherine got the positive test results back in the spring, which made it that much more shocking. “Isaiah was 11 months old when we found out,” she explained. “It was a little overwhelming to think about but we wanted a big family.”

A Sixth Sense?

“Every time we get pregnant, [Sean] tells me,” Catherine divulged about the moment she found out. “I leave the stick in the bathroom and he comes out with the stick. So every time that we’ve found out, he’s the one who is telling me.”

Catherine continued, “He had Isaiah in his arms and I was like, ‘Surely this is not going to happen.’ I did not think it was going to be true.”

BFFs for Life
One good thing about the timing of Catherine’s pregnancy is that their kids are going to be extremely close in age. “Obviously, it’s going to be overwhelming and exhausting but they get to be best friends forever,” the brunette beauty gushed.

The husband and wife are keeping their eyes on the bigger picture. “We get to have these children who are going to be so close in age and get to grow up and have all these memories. Yeah, it’ll be hard for us but it’s just a chapter. It’s so fleeting,” Catherine assured.

So Much Love
It’s safe to say the couple is still completely smitten with each other. “When I first saw you on The Bachelorette, I knew you were hot. I knew you were a family guy and that you had a kind heart. All before I even met you,” Catherine began a heartfelt Father’s Day post for her hubby on June 16.

Dad of the Year
Not surprisingly, their kids adore their dad just as much. “I get to see you make my children laugh,” Catherine raved about her partner. “I get to watch them call for you when they are in need. I see them light up and race to you when you walk in the room.”
