At the time, a source told E! News Shannon was taken aback by the pregnancy announcement. “Shannon was very shocked when she heard the news about David,” the insider previously described. “The girls are excited that their dad is happy, but it’s still very fresh to them. The girls still have a great relationship with their dad, but it was a huge surprise to them.”
However, the baby news didn’t come as a total shock to David’s loyal followers and fanbase. Before revealing he and Lesley were expanding their family, the two made it clear they were in it for the long haul.
Case in point? In January 2020, the former Bravolebrity put a ring on it. The couple announced they were engaged after nearly two years of dating.
“Blessed to have David in our lives. I appreciate all he does for us and everyone around him,” Lesley gushed to E! News at the time. “Looking forward to a bright future with my fiancé. It’s a dream come true for me.”
