Stephanie Hollman on Brandi Redmond’s Surprise Pregnancy

Last October, Brandi Redmond shared the news with her fans that she was expecting her fourth child. And now her BFF, Stephanie Hollman, is sharing some more details about that time in her friend's life, including exactly when and how she found out her friend was pregnant.

How to Watch

Catch up on The Real Housewives of Dallas on Peacock or the Bravo App.

"100 [percent] shock. She sent a picture, a sonogram picture, and there was a full baby in the picture and she was like, 'Guess what? We're having a baby.' And I did not know, I thought maybe she was adopting again. I had no idea she was pregnant," The Real Housewives of Dallas cast member shared about Brandi during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen this week. "It was the most shocking thing."

Stephanie noted on WWHL that Brandi found out she was pregnant during her annual visit to her doctor, and as Andy Cohen said on WWHL, was around "16 weeks pregnant right after you guys wrapped [filming RHOD]" when she learned of the news.

Cut to 2021: Brandi welcomed daughter Brilynn Mari Redmond in February. Brilynn is the youngest Redmond kiddo. Brandi is also a mom to three other kids: 12-year-old Brooklyn, 9-year-old Brinkley, and 3-year-old Bruin, whom she and husband, Bryan Redmond, adopted in 2018.

And you can bet that Stephanie has met the little one. "She is perfect and I love seeing you so happy," Stephanie shared back in February on Instagram shortly after Brilynn was born.

We do know what's next for Brandi and Stephanie, and that's the RHOD Season 5 reunion. The upcoming two-part reunion premieres at a special time on Tuesday, May 4 at 10:30/9:30c. Watch a preview, below.
