Lala Kent Is Expecting Her First Child with Fiancé Randall Emmett
Lala Kent announced her pregnancy news in the latest episode of her podcast.
There's a baby on the way for Lala Kent and her fiancé Randall Emmett. The couple announced the news in the Wednesday, September 2 episode of their podcast Give Them Lala... with Randall.
"I'm like shaking right now because I can't believe it's a real-life thing," Lala said as tears started streaming down her face, according to Randall. "Today it's very much happy tears."
Lala then shared that she got "the best gift" for her 30th birthday on September 2 and confirmed, "I am pregnant." "I am so excited," Lala said. "I feel very maternal and motherly."
Lala noted that so much change seems to be coming her way these days. "Life is really hitting me in the face. It's like, holy s--t, I'm turning 30. There's something living inside of me, growing, which is in itself, like, what is this alien thing happening?" she said. "My life is changing very quickly. I don't love change, even though it's all great things, it's like, well, wait a minute, I'm a kid still, a kid having a kid."
She also recalled how moving it was to hear her baby's heartbeat during a recent doctor's appointment. "I had a doctor's appointment yesterday and the heartbeat, you guys, I just want to hear that for the rest of my life. If I could just hear that heartbeat forever, I'm chilling," Lala said. "I told Randall, I'm like, 'Whenever you're having a hard day, you just remember the heartbeat, and you will have the best day ever.'"
Lala said that she doesn't know the sex of her baby yet, but she intends to find out in advance of the birth in order to better plan for her child's arrival. "I don't know how these people are like, 'I'm gonna find out when it's born.' I would lose my mind," she said.
Randall added, "We are going to know in a couple weeks, and we've already planned how to do the gender reveal."
When Randall asked Lala what she would tell their child right now, she emphasized how she will always be there for their baby. "Honestly, I think the one thing would be you're safe with me. This world is gonna really try to kick your ass, but I got you, boo. I'm gonna kick its ass for you," she said. "As long as my kid always knows that it's safe, I'm chilling."
This will be the third child for Randall, who has two daughters from his first marriage. When Randall spoke to Us Weekly in August, he confirmed that he and Lala were "working on" starting a family. "We are on the Flo app. We are on the apps. Lala, whatever day it is, she comes in, she says, ‘Give me a baby!’ and then I hop right to it,'" Randall said. “So yes, we are working on it. It is only a matter of time.”
Lala and Randall, who got engaged in September 2018, postponed their wedding that was supposed to take place in April of this year due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Randall recently confirmed to Us Weekly that the two plan to wed in 2021.
