what happy news for the Church/Hensen families! I’m envious of the quick timing between the pregnancies…I’m ttc #2 for nearly 3 years, and wish it would happen sooner.

annie on

Yay! I kind of saw this coming, if you look back to Ruby’s introduction interview, Gavin says that he would like to try for another child when Ruby’s 9 months. Haha, close enough. 🙂 I’m happy for them. Ruby’s adorable!

We found out on Memorial Day that we are expecting our second baby in January, 17 months after we welcomed our daughter. What was the first thing I did? Research people who had babies less than 18 months apart and get some tips!

Congrats to Charlotte and Gavin.

wow talk about quick! With a newborn you wonder how they even fit the time in 🙂

My mom and my uncle are 11 months apart. But then again my grandmother also had 5 kids in 8 years!

Sarah on

congrats!! I’m thrilled
I hope she has a girl again.

Not a surprise because I read a rumour in a magazine here a few weeks ago about her being pregnant again. Actually surprised her daughter is only 8 months old, always thought she was a bit older for some reason1

Congrats to them both 🙂

Jeanine on

Wow, congrats to them. I have 3 and my youngest 2 are 10 months apart.. its a lot of work but she’ll do great!

I wish them all the luck in the world!!

It has seemed like they are great parents and I know from experience that, while it’s not easy, having kids close in age is such a wonderful experience.

My two boys are 18mo 8days apart and I have loved it. I sometimes wish that their sister was closer in age to them (she is 2.5yrs younger than my younger son) simply because she is sometimes a third wheel and the age difference is bigger by enough that it is felt more, but I also feel great when I see the intense bond between them.

Due to my older son’s special needs, they are sometimes more like twins than most kids that close in age, but even when they are not, it’s phenomenal.

They are very different kids in terms of personality, but they are great friends and love sharing a room, having told me many times that they cannot sleep without one another.

A friend of mine has her kids close in age, as well, and her two girls are the same way, at ages 4 and 3. They love sharing a room and don’t want to sleep without one another.

Her boys are almost 2 and almost 1 and it’s already clear it will be the same way, as the older loves his baby brother and is just so excited for him to be walking so they can really play together.

A bit of a shock, but so happy for them. I remember when Ruby was born, Gavin saying that him and his sister were 9 months apart and they liked the closeness in age.

Charlotte has just said on the show (its airing now) that she is due mid January. She is still early in the pregnancy.
