“[Tia] So excited that I felt like she was praying for a little girl. Kate explained in a recent interview that we’re a lot outnumbered guys so hopefully there’s a little more feminine energy in the house.
Meanwhile, Kate also digs into the more difficult parts of their relationship and how she and Rio were sensitive to his three older children at the beginning of their relationship.
She said, “We didn’t have the full honeymoon period. It all went well, ‘We have a baby and if we do this we are all involved.’ So the relationship romance died because of three children, they lost their mother, you think a lot, you just want to settle down.
“I don’t feel like I’m there often, and when I’m there, I’m happy. And absolutely no kissing. We said this the other day – I said, ‘We don’t really kiss. so much together in front of the kids’ . That’s because we were very conscious from the very beginning not to do it, not to make them nervous or uncomfortable, so all of a sudden after that we just went on like So, we started to have a little bit of animosity. We went, ‘Oh, give us a kiss – Urgh, disgusting.’ But now six years have passed.”
