Sai De Silva Reveals if She Wants to Have Another Baby
The RHONY mom addressed the topic while reflecting on how big her son, Rio, has gotten.
Sai De Silva has babies on the brain. But is she ready to welcome kid No. 3?
The Real Housewives of New York City mom addressed the subject on Instagram this week when she posted a photo of herself lying in bed with her 5-year-old son, Rio. The adorable selfie — which was, of course, snapped by Sai — showed the little one snuggled next to his mom while using a blanket to cover half of his face.
“I can’t believe he’s getting so big,” she wrote in the August 30 Story.
Sai went on to admit that she does want another bundle of joy, but welcoming a third child would simply be too difficult at this stage in her life.
“I’m so sad and want a small baby again,” she continued, “but I just don’t have the energy to start over.”
Sai De Silva shares a peek into her days with Rio
On Friday, September 1, Sai shared a lighthearted look at her relationship with her energetic boy. The fashion influencer posted a reel in which her son was seen zooming around the house and playfully teasing his mom throughout the day.
“POV: Moms with Sons,” she wrote in the post. “Countdown until school starts! Any other parents counting down the days?”
Sai De Silva’s Family
Sai shares Rio with her husband, David Craig, a retiree who helps manage their Brooklyn household. The couple tied the knot in 2009 and welcomed their first child together — a daughter named London — about two years later.
Although Sai’s kids are regularly featured on her social media accounts, her husband has spent years working behind the scenes. The RHONY newbie explained the decision on her website, saying David “likes his privacy.”
“In a world where we share everything, it’s nice to have something that is private in my life,” she wrote. “It keeps my sanity and I also think having a little mystery is fun. However, he is very involved when it comes to his family and I think he should win an award for father of the year!”
Sai De Silva reflects on her difficult upbringing
Many fans got their first look at David in RHONY Season 14, which shed more light on Sai’s home life and NYC upbringing. During the cast’s getaway to Erin Lichy’s Hamptons abode, Sai revealed she was born in Los Angeles and was constantly moving from home to home until she decided to leave at age 16.
“I moved to New York when I was 2. My dad lived in Florida at the time,” Sai said. “I spent a couple of years in Florida. I also lived in different places every seven months until high school when I stayed put.”
She continued: “I moved to Brooklyn in an apartment with my roommate from high school. The rent was super cheap, I worked at Sears, I made it work, and like, I’ve been on my own since I was like 16.”
After pursuing a biology pre-med degree, Sai decided to change course and enter the fashion industry. She eventually landed an internship with Alberta Ferretti’s PR department, but she quickly realized she wanted to be her own boss. It was then that Sai launched her highly successful Scout the City blog, which has since expanded to various platforms, like YouTube, Instagram, and TikTok.
“Everything that I had growing up is so different from the family that I’ve created,” Sai said in the season opener. “I think I remember growing up very broke, but always just daydreaming. I think I used to just daydream and I think that was a form of manifestation. I didn’t know how I was going to get it, I just knew that I was not going to settle for mediocrity.”
