Stassi Schroeder, 31, has made headlines recently after her past racial remarks resurfaced.
Since then, the reality star was fired from “Vanderpump Rules,” dropped by her agency and publicist, lost several endorsements, and had her podcast, “Straight up with Stassi” removed from all platforms.
On June 16th, People confirmed, Schroeder is expecting her first child with fiancé Beau Clark, 40.
“Stassi and Beau will be welcoming their first child the first week in January and are grateful and eager to begin the next chapter of their lives as parents,” her rep told the outlet.
The couple, who got engaged in 2019, first met in 2017 after Kristen Doute (who was also fired from the show) introduced them. Although, Clark wasn’t initially interested.
“I just scanned through [Stassi’s] pictures, and I was like, ‘the bleach blond hair, she’s probably got Botox, she’s probably got fake boobs’ And I was like, ‘She probably goes to Nightingale and gets table service, bottle service, whatever you call it.’ Just not my cup of tea at all,” he revealed on Schroder’s podcast.
But, the two ended up meeting up at a hotel bar and hit it off. “We ended up closing down Mondrian talking,” Clark said.
“I don’t think I’ve laughed as hard ever with anybody, just to have a great conversation with someone for the first time hanging out was fantastic,” he added.
In December 2018, Clark appeared on “Vanderpump Rules” although the couple had only been together for a few months.
On March 18th, 2019, Schroeder wished her boyfriend a happy birthday with a touching tribute on Instagram.
She wrote, “Happiest birthday to my best friend. It’s disgusting how happy you make me. It’s disgusting how much I love you. It’s all so disgusting. ??? @thegoodthebadthebogie.”
On July 31, 2019, the couple announced their engagement. Clark proposed at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles.
Schroeder shared a photo of herself (with her engagement ring visible) and Clark with the caption:
“OMG. I feel like Meghan Markle. ?”
In August, she posted another adorable photo that also revealed their wedding hashtag.
“Hi mom, I’m engaged & we found our hashtag. #FromDarkToClark,” she wrote with a photo of herself on the phone next to Clark as they both cried happy tears.
Clark and Schroeder were set to marry this year in Italy. But due to the coronavirus pandemic, they pushed their wedding back to 2021.
“We’re 99 percent sure that it’s going to be a year from where we planned. So next year, 2021, October,” Schroeder revealed on her taken down podcast.
Of course, that was before the recent backlash, as well as their pregnancy news.
In recent weeks, the duo has been keeping a low profile. But Schroeder returned to Instagram yesterday via story, where she shared a photo of herself kissing Clark on the cheek.
