The stork will soon be making (another) trip to Charleston, as Jennifer Snowden is expecting the arrival of her first child this September. "I'm excited, tired a little bit. Other than being a little more tired, and sober, and bigger, I really don't feel pregnant. It's really not that bad. I thought I would be a lot more nervous but I'm really not. I'm more excited," she told The Daily Dish this week.
Jennifer's due date is only a few of months away, but the Southern Charm friend still has some shopping to do before the big day. "I haven't bought one damn thing, but I'm about to move houses, so I just don't want to move it," she explained.
Jennifer's new home is on the water, and the move will bring her closer to both downtown Charleston and her mother. "It's the best place in the world," she said of her hometown. "It's a small city, but it has the beach. It's cosmopolitan, but yet, [has a] small town feeling as well."
And while she hasn't quite stocked up on baby supplies just yet, there is one thing she knows her new home will have plenty of once the baby arrives. "I would say the blessing of being able to hear laughter everyday. I live alone — and I have for a long time — so just to have love and laughter in the house everyday is what I'm most excited about," she said.
Jennifer confirmed her pregnancy to The Daily Dish back in April, adding that the father is her longtime friend-turned-boyfriend, Lee. But, it's one of her gal pals, Kathryn Dennis, who has offered up the best wisdom on parenthood, noting that a mother's relationship with her baby is "the least disappointing one you'll ever have." "That's really resonated with me," Jennifer explained. "I can't wait for my best friend to get here."
Back in April, Jennifer also addressed some of the difficulties she's faced during the pregnancy, including the fact that that her baby was diagnosed with a brain encephalocele, which is a neural tube defect that can affect various parts of the brain. "Although the future is to a degree uncertain for our baby, I have a pure sense of weightlessness about the stresses or fear of his future and I attribute that to faith and prayer alone," she said at the time. "One thing I do know is that he has one, a future, because of my decision to keep the little guy around and I couldn't be more thrilled to meet him, no matter what mountains we will have to climb together."
Over three seasons, viewers have seen that Jennifer has never been one to shy away from the Charleston drama — especially when it comes to getting in the middle of Kathryn and Thomas Ravenel's on-again, off-again relationship. We mean, who could forget when Kathryn questioned the true nature of her now-pal's relationship with Thomas? But, perhaps impending motherhood has softened her. The role of mom is one that she thinks she has some of the right personality traits for. "I mean I'm 35 and I'm kind of nurturing type person anyway, so, yeah, of course [I felt motherly when I heard I was pregnant], but it grows significantly in your pregnancy as you do when you feel him kick. So, yeah, you bond. I guess every girl's different, but I did immediately and now we're thick as thieves," she said this week.
As for having a son, she joked, "I love little boys. As you can see with this crew, girls are a pain in the ass."
