READ: Why Solenn Heussaff and Nico Bolzico delayed parenting
By Kristelle Bechayda
It was only less than a week ago when actress and model Solenn Heussaff revealed she and her husband Nico Bolzico are expecting their first baby.
Since tying the knot in 2016, the couple was often asked if when they were planning to have kids. On her blog, Solenn shares why she and Nico took their time before starting their own family.
“There were a lot of things that Nico and I wanted to experience as a married couple first, like traveling as much as we could and prioritizing each other and our careers,” she wrote.
Though the couple was pressured to start their family, especially after Solenn’s friends started having their own kids, Solenn and Nico took their time before deciding to have a baby.
“Our choice was to do it when we were ready, not when books or the internet or our family or other people said so.” she added.
The wait was worth it
Solenn, who has always wanted to have children when she is in her 30s, shared she was glad she and Nico only decided to have a baby when they were already ready.
“When to have children (if you want them) is a massive decision and it will lead to a lifetime responsibility. You don’t get to tap out of being a mom and a dad. That’s why it’s not something you should take lightly, so if you need time to make that decision and you have the time to sit on it, go and make the most of it.” Solenn explained.
Now four months along, it has been an easy pregnancy for the first-time mom and she doesn’t ‘feel super out of place’ in her own body.
“Now that the news is out, it feels extra nice to be sharing the journey with the peeps I love and so many who have supported our relationship for so long,” Solenn ended.
