‘Real Housewives’ Star Pregnant With First Child

A pregnant woman.

Heavy Candiace Dillard is pregnant.

Former “Real Housewives of Potomac” star Candiace Dillard is pregnant with her first child.

“I am about 13 weeks … so just about into the second trimester. It’s been weird, but also really wonderful, I think, to keep it kind of to ourselves to this point,” Dillard told ET.

“Our immediate family knows, my mom — I told my mom on her birthday in February — my dad knows, [Chris’] parents know, my siblings know and that is my core, best friend group, but outside of that it’s just been, like, kind of quietly just growing a bun,” she added.

Dillard, 37, is married to Chris Bassett, 46. The two tied the knot in August 2018.

Fans Reacted to Candiace Dillard’s Pregnancy News on Social Media

Dillard had shared some of her fertility journey on “The Real Housewives of Potomac.” In her interview with ET, she said that she underwent a round of IVF earlier this year.

“Our doctor called us at 8 a.m. and she tells us that we’re pregnant. We waited and waited and waited all this time, so to finally hear that, after those two weeks, the process has worked after a year of doing the shots. … I did two rounds of egg retrieval. To do the shots in your stomach, I had to do the shots in my bum bum every day — which was not always fun — and to finally have it all pay off was amazing,” she told ET.

In addition to speaking with the news outlet about her pregnancy, Dillard also posted to Instagram with the exciting news.
