“He was so excited, and we both cried,” she said of when they first found out. “It was crazy and overwhelming and so hard not to scream it from the rooftops.”
She later added of her baby, “She’s growing pretty fast, so [the due date] is a bit up in the air.”
Richie also detailed how she and Grainge learned they were having a little girl, especially since gender reveals are one of her favorite things.
“I love the YouTubes and the TikToks — even before I was talking about getting pregnant — of gender reveals,” she told the magazine. “So we had our OB text my assistant Becca [our baby’s gender], and we bought two party poppers: one blue, one pink.”
Richie continued, “She left out the one with the correct color inside, and Elliot and I popped it together. We both really thought it was a boy, so it was a true shock. My dream in life is to have a daughter [though], and Elliot is really excited for a girl too. I think it’s so typical for boys to want boys, but he has a lot of sisters. It was really sweet. He’s very sensitive.”
Following the news, Richie shared a series of posts on Instagram to celebrate the new chapter in her life. The social posts featured black-and-white photos of her, showing off her baby bump, with her husband.
One of them included the caption, “And then there were three,” while another read, “Our hearts are filled with so much love! So thankful for all of your support! Can’t wait for this next chapter of life.”
Richie and Grainge tied the knot last April in an extravagant ceremony in Antibes, France. She told Vogue at the time, “I’m so excited to be married, just because I’m marrying Elliot. I know that sounds so cheesy…he’s the man of my dreams.”
