RHOP Monique Samuels Plans to Keep Pregnancy Secret from Kids Despite Displaying Baby Bump

“The Real Housewives of Potomac” star Monique Samuels is four months into her pregnancy, but she still hasn’t given the good news to the children she shares with husband Chris Samuels.

“We haven’t told Christopher and Milani yet as we would like to wait until we’re a little further along; kids tend to be a little impatient and I would rather them know when it’s almost time,” she recently told The Daily Dish in an email of her 5-year-old son and 2-year-old daughter. “However, they have been giving my belly plenty of hugs and kisses. It’s almost as if they know, but they don’t know they know!”

Samuels is being understandably cautious since she suffered a miscarriage just a couple of days before she filmed the RHOP season 2 reunion last year.

“It taught me not to take things for granted and to think that I’m so special that something like that can’t happen to me,” she told the site in April of her miscarriage. “I just try to look at the positive in any situation and say obviously God knew what was best at that time. So now moving forward, I’ll make sure I’m more prepared so when the time comes again, we’ll be ready, and I’ll try not to be as nervous being that we’ve experienced that. I can only imagine if and when we get pregnant again, just the thought of it possibly happening again, just trying to shut that from my mind.”

But it hasn’t been smooth sailing for Samuels this time, either.

She confessed in a blog post last week that she discovered an issue that could complicate things in her pregnancy. The reality star has a subchorionic hemorrhage in two areas of her placenta where it should have completely attached to her uterus. It was discovered 8 weeks into her pregnancy.

“My doctor told me that if the placenta fully separates, I would lose the pregnancy, regardless of the excellent health and size of the fetus. Talk about devastated and afraid!!!” she said.

Still, Samuels said she had to “make a mental decision” and not worry about what issues could arise.
