Adrienne’s Honest Talk About Starting a Family

Loni Love: Munchkin, you are trying to have a family, start your family.

Adrienne Houghton: Yes.

Loni: How is that process going?

Adrienne: It isn’t what I thought it would be. I think um, I think so many people are very insensitive to that, in the sense of like, I know you guys are like, “Is she pregnant? Her face is fuller!” FYI, I’ve always had a really chubby face…

[Other hosts laugh]

Adrienne: …so that’s not what it is, and as I told the audience yesterday, I had McGriddles and things to eat, but I think you should be sensitive to that, I think that as an audience we should be sensitive to the fact that everybody doesn’t get pregnant right away.

Loni: Right.

Adrienne: And I think for myself, I thought it would happen so easily for me, and it just hasn’t happened that way and I have had to come to peace with that, that it’ll happen when it’s God’s timing, and I believe in that and I have faith in all of that, but it can be really discouraging and it can be really frustrating. So – I think I looked at myself and in my mind I was like, “I’m a Cheetah Girl, I’m 19 years old!” and I woke up and was like, “Actually, I’m going to be 35 in a few weeks,” and that makes a big difference, like I can feel as youthful as I want, on the inside and in my heart, but my ovaries are… what they are!

Loni: Right.

Adrienne: You know what I’m saying? And that sucks to hear that. And along with that, I thought like, there’s so many freaking preconceived notions, like having wide hips or the fact that I’m Latina – I thought that if my husband looked at me I’d get pregnant –

Loni Right.

Adrienne: I really believed that! And it just hasn’t been that way. And so for any woman out there that is trying, that is – the number one thing they tell you is to remain calm – it’ll happen when it happens – I know all of that is so annoying to hear. At the same time it’s so annoying to hear, because you’re like, “I get that,” but then you watch like… this is so annoying, but then you watch like teenagers that get pregnant, and you’re like, “I’m ready and I’m willing and I’m prepared! Why isn’t…” You know? It can be frustrating.
