Jax Taylor spent his second Father’s Day with several dads and other pals.

The former “Vanderpump Rules” star welcomed his son, Cruz, with his wife, Brittany Cartwright, in April 2021. Since that time, he’s gone into full-on dad mode.

Taylor prides himself on being a father. In 2021, he told E! News that while had “ideas” about what fatherhood would be like, it has been “one thousand times better” than he ever imagined. “I can honestly say I have never been as happy as I am right now,” he told the outlet. “I now know this was the role I was born to play.”

Taylor even noted that his friend group changed a bit after his son was born.  During a 2021 appearance on “The Doctors,” the “Vanderpump Rules” alum revealed that he mostly only keeps in touch with his former co-stars who are parents.

“The ones that have kids,” he said of the friends he hangs out with. “And those are the kind of people I’m with a lot now — other parents. We all have a lot in common. We’re all raising our children together. All our kids are months apart. That’s my main concern, my main priority right now. And we’re just having a lot of fun doing it, a lot of fun raising our kids together.”

So who did Taylor celebrate his special day with? The guest list might surprise you.

Schwartz recently split from his wife, Katie Maloney, and moved out of his Valley Village home that was located right near Taylor’s house. But months before their split, the former couple made an attempt to have a child together. “Listen, I can’t wait to have kids,” Schwartz told Hollywood Life in a 2021 interview.

Fans saw part of the couple’s fertility journey play out during the 9th season of “Vanderpump Rules.” On the season 9 premiere, Schwartz revealed that he and Maloney did try to get pregnant at the time that some of their co-stars were having kids. “There was a two-month window in which we were really working on it,” Schwartz said in a confessional interview, as shared by BravoTV.com.
