It’s been just a little over a week since the world (finally!) learned of Rachel Lindsay and Bryan Abasolo’s engagement, but the two lovebirds have had a few months now to enjoy their time together and plan for the future. We know they’ve discussed when they’ll get married, and now we’re learning that they’ve talked about when they’ll have kids too — in part because of Abasolo’s mother.
“His mom actually is pressuring us for babies. She’d be happy if we started a family right away,” Lindsay, 32, told Us Weekly. And while the former Bachelorette definitely wants to have children down the road, she and Abasolo are focused on a few other priorities at the moment. “I do want to wait until after we get married in winter 2017 or ’18,” she said. “We want three or four [kids]. We’ll see what’s in the cards. It’s a fun thing to plan.”
In the meantime, the pair are thinking about getting a dog together. “I’m fine with just [my dog] Copper,” Lindsay said. “But Bryan is obsessed with dogs and he really wants us to get one together, specifically a small dog. He keeps saying, ‘Bae, we have to get a small dog together.’” Cute!
And that’s not the only big decision they’re trying to make. They’re currently debating whether they should settle in Abasolo’s base in Miami, Lindsay’s hometown of Dallas, or perhaps somewhere completely new.
“We’re talking about Dallas, LA, or Miami,” she explained. “We just want to bring our two lives together, that’s what is really important. We are putting our list of places we want to live together. Right now, LA is looking pretty nice, but we’re not sure yet.”
For now, they’re just enjoying getting to know each other better. “I’m learning how much we really have in common,” Lindsay shared. “We both love scary movies, comedy TV shows, sports, and that has been so fun to find out about each other, but also other things, like he takes longer to get ready in the morning than I do!” She added that they’re “adjusting to each other’s schedules” and having fun “figuring each other out.”
Considering they have a lifetime ahead of them to do just that, let’s hope it’s stays fun for years to come.
