Ballatori announced that they were expecting their first child ahead of the conclusion to season 1. The episode aired April 2022. “SPOILER ALERT. Here’s to my husband — thank you for the most incredible year of my life. Being married to you and starting our family has been the greatest gift,” she wrote via Instagram at the time. “I am beyond blessed to have such a passionate, loving, strong partner to share this life with. We are so blessed to be loved by your love. THREE MORE WEEKS UNTIL OUR BABY GIRL ARRIVES!”
Ballatori and Kissinger later gushed about the next chapter of their lives ahead of their child’s arrival. “I am ready to have my girl. Just the past couple weeks, I’m like, ‘Get this baby out of me,’ but I love being pregnant. I mean, it’s been such a blessing,” the then-expectant reality star exclusively told Us WeeklyMarch 2022
Her husband, for his part, added, “Honestly, through it all, she’s done a great job of handling everything.”
They also discussed the possibility of having cameras record their fast-paced love. “Once I knew I was committed in [the]Engagement, I knew I was ready to do the next big thing which was marriage. Why not take advantage of the opportunity?” Kissinger told Use. “And I figure since she said yes to the engagement, why not say yes to the marriage.”
Ballatori stated that she was delighted to make things official for the Texas native. “I knew that going into it, if I was going to say yes to the proposal, I’ve got to be ready to fully give it all. I think you saw I was kind of, like, ‘What the heck? Let’s do it,’” she shared.
The birth of Josephine Riley, a Netflix alum, was announced in May 2022 by the couple. “Baby girl is healthy and perfect and we will be bringing her home tomorrow,” Ballatori shared via her Instagram Story. “We’ve been snuggling in the hospital bed trying to rest as much as possible and reflect on this incredible gift.”
