Bachelor stars Jade Roper and Tanner Tolbert were married Sunday, January 24th, of this year and have been successfully moving forward with their life partnership, including planning to have children and starring on Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars.
The couple recently spoke to PEOPLE about the possible baby situation.
“I bet you sometime next year you’ll hear something,” Tolbert, 29 says.
That being said, they’re not going to rush into anything.
“I mean, we’re still kind of waiting,” added Roper. “We haven’t even been married a year. But I think once I hit that mark, I’m really going to be like, ‘Okay, let’s do it!’ ”
I have to confess, I’m shocked by the successful coupling of these two. I thought surely Jade was looking for fame and not ready to settle down, but touché Jade was for real. Jade and Tanner seem like one of the most solid couples to emerge from the franchise and I have no doubt they will produce a baby soon.
The two met on BiP last year, got engaged on the season finale.
The two will also be starring on the upcoming season of Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars, set to premiere next month. Of course it’s the natural progression…from heading off into the sunset to heading off to marriage counseling. But Tanner insists it’s really about a chance to get closer.
“We never got to do premarital counseling because everything moved so quick with us,” …..“So we viewed it as an opportunity to lay a good foundation.”
“I think people have this idea that you go on The Bachelor and you have this perfect relationship, but we’re normal, just like everyone else, and we have our issues,” added Roper.
Yes! We sure do! What could possibly go wrong?
“All of our relationship has already been on television, so why can’t we be good role models by showing [the full picture]? Like hey, we do love each other and we do have issues and we’re here to work them out, just like everyone else.”
Excellent! I look forward to watching Janner build their foundation this October.
Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars season 6 premieres Oct. 7 at 9 p.m. ET on WE tv.
