Mom of 3 Brooke Burke reveals on her blog yesterday that she is expecting a boy with boyfriend David Charvet.
We are thrilled beyond imagination. David has always desperately wanted a boy and I have been wishing for a son as well, all my life. Our home has been an estrogen pool, and full of pink, girly things. It is exciting to see all the blue stuff. None of us are quite sure what to do with a boy, but we are so happy and totally blessed. David is often complaining about needing some male energy, so now his wish will come true!
The expectant mom has also been put on bedrest for the last few weeks of her pregnancy.
I am officially on bed rest now and climbing the walls!!! I went to my Dr. last week and learned I was 2 centimeters dilated with a thin cervix. I have been down that road before with Neriah. I delivered her 5 wks early and she was only 4 ½ lbs. So the Dr. put me on house arrest, no sex, and told me not to carry Rain. I am not sure how I will get through this, but it is such an important time, so I am doing the best I can. It is nearly impossible to stay off my feet with 3 kids and David. I am trying and thank God I have made it through this past week. I am 35 weeks now, and hoping to make it to the end of the month.
The couple was thrown a baby shower by the shoe company Stride Rite over the weekend and Brooke lists some of the many gifts she has received.
Among those gifts were:
- Valco “Boy Meets Girl” double stroller
- Collection of baby shoes from Stride Rite
- Clothes and blankies form Petit Bateau and Baby Gap
- Peg Perego high chair
- Silver Cross Dazzle Stroller
