Dani Soares announced earlier this month that she is expecting her first child. After keeping the news under wraps for so long, Dani recently told Daily Mail Australia that she is glad to have now shared it with the world. "I was just trying to hold onto it a little bit, it's such a personal thing, but I'm actually very relieved that it's out there and everybody knows about it," she said.
The Below Deck Sailing Yacht stew also shared how her pregnancy is going so far, revealing that she is now at the point where she "can't sleep properly anymore," which she said seems to be a preview of "what your life's gonna be like after the baby's here."
And, of course, there are the pregnancy cravings. "And I've been eating so much sweets... it's pregnancy cravings because I'm usually more of a savoury person and I've just been binging ice creams and cakes and stuff like that - it's not like me at all!" Dani added.
But all in all, Dani said that she is doing "really good" during her pregnancy, which she shared during the latest episode of her "Pita Party" chat with fellow Below Deck Sailing Yacht stews Daisy Kelliher and Alli Dore. "Still working full-time, still studying full-time, so just living normal," Dani said.
Dani, who is currently based in Sydney, Australia, just enrolled in nursing school this year. "I love it. It's amazing," she shared. "I literally love every subject of it. And I'm really excited about it."
Dani said that she hopes to balance motherhood and her nursing school education once her baby is born, which Daisy and Alli had the utmost confidence she could do. "Yeah, I want to try my best to keep studying. I don't want to stop it. I should have a month holiday, after the baby is born, from school. It works really well with school holiday," Dani explained. "So, at least, you know, it's a month without studying, without work, just me and baby. And then I can just go back to studying slowly and then after work. So it works well, actually."
Alli, who is based in Melbourne, Australia, offered her assistance should Dani need anything once her little bundle of joy is here. "I'm a plane ride away from you if you ever need help or any support," Alli said. "My family will drop anything to help you as well. They've just given so much love and support."
Dani showed her gratitude to Alli and Daisy for their support. "We're so happy for you, Dani," Alli gushed. "Very exciting time in your life, and you're going to be an amazing mum."
In addition to Alli and Daisy, Dani has received an outpouring of love from many others in the Below Deck family as well as fans since announcing her pregnancy news. "I just wanna say thank you all so much for all the support," Dani shared in a post on Instagram on April 27. "It warms my heart to read so many beautiful messages!"
Dani also noted in that post that she will continue to keep everyone updated on her journey to becoming a mom — and she did just that, recently sharing a new look at her gorgeous baby bump in her Instagram Story.
