Emily Ratajkowski will be a mom soon!
The model revealed in an essay written for Vogue that she and husband Sebastian Bear-McClard are expecting their first child.
She also explained why they don’t want to know the baby’s gender: ” When my husband and I tell friends I’m pregnant, the first question that comes after the congratulations is, ‘Do you know what you want?’ We like to say that we don’t want to know the gender until our child is 18 and he lets us know. ”
” Everyone laughs about that. There is a truth in our sentence, one that hints at the possibilities that are far more complex than the genitals our child might be born with, the truth that we ultimately have no idea who – rather than what – is growing in my belly. Who will this person be? What kind of person will we become parents? How will it change our lives and who we are? This is a wonderful and terrifying concept, which makes us helpless and humble. ”
He then added that they want to raise their child: ” with a few gender stereotypes ” as possible. But he added: ” No matter how progressive I hope to be, I understand the desire to know the genre, it feels like the first real opportunity to take a look at who it will be .”
” I don’t necessarily blame anyone for these generalizations, many of our life experiences are gendered and it would be dishonest to try to deny the reality. But I want to be a parent who allows my child to show themselves. Yet I realize that while I hope that my son can determine his place in the world, however, he will have to face undeniable gender constraints before he can even speak or, heck, be born.
When Emily Ratajkowski revealed in early 2018 that she married Sebastian Bear-McClard, the announcement surprised everyone because no one yet knew she was dating the one who is now her husband.
Only after some time had she explained how he had asked for her hand and said that the first proposal had actually been rejected. Five months after the wedding, the model finally showed off the engagement ring, and long after she released the wedding album.
