Chief Stewardess Kate Chastain is getting lots of love and congratulations from Below Deck stars and fans alike after she revealed she’s five-months pregnant. The beloved Below Deck star first told People the exciting baby news on Tuesday, Dec. 13. Not long after, fans and Below Deck celebs started sending her lots of love and support in her next exciting big life event. Everyone’s excited for Kate Chastain’s baby news and can’t wait to her be a super mom.
“I am absolutely thrilled to become a mother,” Kate said in the interview. “It’s something I’ve always hoped for so this is truly a dream come true!” She also revealed she’s expecting in May.
The witty former reality TV yachtie also said she could no longer hide the baby bump.
“This is such a new and special experience, so I’m really being protective of what I share publicly, but with new episodes of Below Deck Galley Talk about to air on Bravo after Christmas and The Traitors premiering on Peacock on Jan. 12, 2023, there’s just no hiding my baby bump any longer!”
Kate’s one of 10 celebrities who are competing on the new competition show, The Traitors. The show involves 20 competitors completing challenges in order to bank money, meanwhile three “traitors” are trying to secretly sabotage the missions. (Think Netflix’s reboot of subterfuge show The Mole, but on a grander scale.)
So far she hasn’t disclosed who the father is, but that hasn’t stopped fans speculating who’s the baby daddy.
