The former Bravo star, 32, is “really committed” to “being the best new mom possible” to their baby girl, adds the insider. “Stassi is taking excellent care of herself and spending time reading up on everything.”
The New Orleans native has been incredibly quiet on social media since getting fired from Vanderpump Rules in June following past racist behavior toward former cast member Faith Stowers, but the insider notes the former podcast host has “kept busy” by “getting ready to be a mom.”
The reality couple confirmed to Life & Style they are expecting and revealed the due date on June 16. “Stassi and Beau will be welcoming their first child the first week in January,” the Queen Bees star’s rep said, while adding they are “grateful and eager to begin the next chapter of their lives as parents.”
Stassi’s pregnancy news came mere days after Bravo fired her and Kristen Doute after Faith, 31, accused the ladies of mistreating her during her short stint on season 5 of VPR. During that time in 2017, it was discovered by the cast that Jax Taylor cheated on now-wife Brittany Cartwright with Faith.
“I felt like after their friend did something that we both were involved in that he’s done like, a thousand times, they wanted to attack me instead of him,” the Ex on the Beach alum explained to Floribama Shore personality Candace Rice during an Instagram Live in early June. “They wanted to attack, attack, attack, attack, attack.”
Faith also accused Stassi and Kristen, 37, of calling her hair “nappy” and reporting her to the police for a crime she was not involved in.
The season 1 stars since released a joint statement. “Stassi and Kristen acknowledged what they did was wrong, have apologized and been punished,” rep Steve Honig told Life & Style on June 12. “Without casting aside their actions or the impact of those actions, they want to move forward as part of the solution in ways that are productive, meaningful and sincere. Both of them recognize actions speak louder than words and that is what will guide them as they move forward.”
It looks like Stassi has moved on to a new chapter.
