Elisabeth Hasselbeck, 31, has explained that being pregnant with her third baby is a completely different experience than her first pregnancy.
Elisabeth, who is due to give birth to her third child with husband Tim in August, says that being so focused on caring for daughter Grace, 4, and son Taylor Thomas, 1, she’s simply not focused on her pregnancy.
“I’m definitely not paying attention to my pregnancy,” Elisabeth confessed to People magazine at the Lilly Pulitzer launch of A Color Cause Thursday in New York City to benefit children with Epidermolysis Bullosa, a rare skin disease. “That won’t be true for the child [when it arrives]. But now, when you have two kids running around you’re not the pregnant person you were before.”
Unlike her first pregnancy, Elisabeth, says people aren’t quick to be at her beck and call now.
“For the first pregnancy, you’re a pregnant goddess and everyone is running around giving you water,” she shared. “But the third time around, you’re just lucky to have a prenatal pill by the end of day!”
Elisabeth does believe that Grace and Taylor Thomas are ready for another sibling and making sure the two have time to bond before the baby comes.
“I’m just letting them really enjoy this time as brother and sister,” says Elisabeth. “Then I’ll throw in the word baby once in awhile to remind them.”
And on another note, Elisabeth just opened up about her gluten-free lifestyle. It is actually pretty interesting…I’ve heard a lot of people mention this over the years, but haven’t paid much attention.
