No two pregnancies are ever alike! That’s ~what they say~ and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave confirmed it when she spoke to Life & Style exclusively at the iHeart Radio Music Festival in Las Vegas on September 20. The 38-year-old Bravo TV star gushed about her third time around — and how it’s been quite different than her first two pregnancies.
“Oh, so many differences. I think because with the others, we had such a hard time getting pregnant, and I was on steroids and blood thinners and hormones and all these things. I had all these additional symptoms that I just assumed were pregnancy,” she exclusively revealed to Life & Style about her first two pregnancies.

Teddi is already a mom of two and she shares her son, Cruz, and her daughter, Slate, with her husband, Edwin Arroyave. Luckily, the seasoned mama isn’t dealing with any pregnancy complications for her third go. “I’m not really having that this time around because it was natural and, you know, just happened,” Teddi explained. “Plus, I didn’t know I was pregnant for the first eight weeks, so…”
Eddie chimed in with a small correction. “Ten weeks,” he said, before the RHOBH star added, “I’m excited. Yeah!”
It’s so nice to hear the blonde beauty is getting to enjoy a new chapter in her life with her family after a pretty tumultuous season on the hit reality series she’s starred in since late 2017. Clearly, she’s had a chance to wind down enough to conceive naturally — a big change from her first two pregnancies with Cruz, 5, and Slate, 6, where the couple used IVF.
“My husband said, ‘I don’t want to see you going through IVF again — that was brutal,’” she revealed to Us Weekly. “It was so many rounds, but this time we really weren’t doing anything! I was on vacation! Just having fun with my family! It was a complete surprise. I didn’t even know I was because I didn’t have a regular cycle.”
She also gushed about how pumped the kids are to be older siblings. “They’re already calling it ‘their baby,’” she revealed. “And they have names picked for if it’s a boy or a girl — they’re ready!”
So are we, girl. Congrats!
