‘Real Housewives’ Bethenny Frankel, Jason Hoppy Pregnant

Real Housewives of NYC Bethenny Frankel is pregnant, and new fiance Jason Hoppy is the proud daddy-to-be. Frankel admits that the two weren’t always “careful”.

Bethenny Frankel and Jason HoppyIt seems like just yesterday Bethenny Frankel was announcing her whirlwind engagement to real estate mogul Jason Hoppy. Today, the Real Housewives of New York City star confirmed rumors that she is two months pregnant.

Frankel revealed to People Magazine that the two didn’t try to prevent pregnancy too hard because of their age. “I’m no spring chicken. I didn’t think it was going to happen right away. Because of my age, sometimes we weren’t totally careful,” she said.

In her typical straight-forward style, Frankel says, it was nice to know they weren’t too late. “I got to be honest, we are both feeling kind of proud of ourselves. We are both 38 and we were like, ‘Listen, your fish can swim and I am fertile.’ So that’s exciting.”

The Housewives star has not commented on whether or not her breast implants will come out as her pregnancy progresses. Often women will have implants removed because as the breasts naturally get larger during pregnancy, it can become uncomfortable.

Women who have breast augmentation surgery may still be able to nurse, but many won’t know until they try. The implant itself does not interfere with the process, but if nerves around the areola were cut during surgery, it can interfere with the let-down reflex, which is vital to the breast feeding process.

Right now, however, Frankel says she is just worried about satisfying her own hunger. “I’m hungry in a way that is not negotiable,” she says. “I’m not eating a tremendous amount but if I am hungry, I will stab someone for food.”
