Below Deck Sailing Yacht star Dani Soares opened up about her pregnancy in an exclusive interview with Bravo Insider. However, she’s still keeping most of the details to herself. The stew revealed how her life has changed since filming the show. On April 24, Dani announced that she’s expecting her first child.
At the time, she kept the paternity and gender to herself. She already knew about the sex of the baby “pretty early on” after getting a genetic test when she was 10 weeks pregnant. As TV Shows Ace previously reported, Dani confirmed that she’s having a baby girl in an Instagram post on Wednesday, May 12.
Why Dani Soares is not talking about her pregnancy
The Below Deck Sailing Yacht star had to come out with her pregnancy when a fan leaked photos of Dani pregnant at work. She works as a beauty therapist in Sydney, Australia as she studies nursing. While she revealed the baby’s gender, she wants to keep most of the details of her pregnancy to herself for now. Dani is not used to having so much fame after appearing on the show.
“Because there [were] pictures out there and stuff, I had to reveal that I was pregnant,” she explained to Bravo Insider. “And it was so public. And people had so many opinions about it. So I just want to try and keep it a little bit private.”
Before going public with her pregnancy, Dani shared the joyous news with her Below Deck Sailing Yacht crew members Alli Dore and Chef Natasha De Bourg. She says that she’s still “close” with both of them. They have “been so supportive” of her pregnancy journey. However, only some of the fans have been supportive.
“Honestly, I’ve been receiving so much support. People have been so nice. I’ve had some weird messages, but you know, that’s always gonna happen,” Dani said. “But the vast majority is amazing people sharing their stories with me, and I appreciate that so much. And that really does make a difference. I’m happy it’s out there now.”
Below Deck Sailing Yacht star addresses paternity drama
The leaked photos and pregnancy news led to speculation over who is the father of Dani’s baby. Below Deck Sailing Yacht fans watched the two hook up on the show. She even joked about “getting pregnant” if it’s “God’s plan.” Dani is aware of the questions in regards to the father.
“I find it really weird,” Dani admitted. “‘Cause I’m like, if somebody tells me they’re pregnant, right, somebody that I know, I wouldn’t go like, ‘Oh my god, where’s the father?’ So I find it really weird that people do that.”
The Bravo star understands that people can say whatever they want. But she finds it strange that they’re outright asking her who the father is — especially since she’s a total stranger to them. Dani has not revealed her due date, but she said that she’s “very close” and she’s “very scared” about giving birth. Below Deck Sailing Yacht airs Mondays at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
