Cassie’s baby girl is set to arrive in December and the soon-to-be mom is opening up about her pregnancy journey.
Speaking to Hatch, Cassie says that her husband Alex Fine knew she was pregnant before she realized.
Check out a few excerpts from her interview:
Hatch: Husband! You just got married…what does it feel like?
Cassie: It’s crazy; I LOVE it! Leading up to the day, we were both nervous and had jitters because of the stress around planning, not the marriage itself. As soon as I saw him waiting for me down the aisle, all my nervousness melted away. It feels as if it was always meant to be.
What was that like to get married pregnant?
At first, I was NOT down with the idea of being a pregnant bride! I dreamed of having champagne and dancing at our wedding! However, once I weighed the amount of time we would have to wait (hello, birth, and breastfeeding), I realized what I cared about was being his wife and our family, not about whether I was pregnant or not at our wedding. In the end, we had a beautiful intimate ceremony on a bluff overlooking Malibu during sunset. Everything was perfect.
I’m still getting used to saying “husband!” It’s so fun and solidifies everything. We also have a 1-year-old, 110 pound Rottweiler named Waffles, who is entirely part of the family. Legit, we’re a little crew with the whole set-up.
Your path to pregnancy?
The good old fashioned way! While it wasn’t “planned,” it also wasn’t unplanned. We were open to having kids and had just started to explore the idea when I got pregnant. It was my husband (still getting used to saying this!) that noticed I hadn’t had my period in a while. When he said something to me, I was like, “Who pays attention to that?!” Apparently, he does. So, I took a test, and it was positive! We were both over the moon!
What has been unexpected about pregnancy?
I’ve been completely calm. I used to have a lot of anxiety; however, with pregnancy, I’ve been totally zen and fully living my purpose. It’s primal, almost as if my body is forcing me to slow down to create the safest environment for our baby.
Have you been working throughout pregnancy?
I just started my label Ventura Music this summer! Currently, it’s just me on the label so that I could get my music out into the world. You never know what could happen though, maybe I’ll bring other people onto the label in the future. For now, I’ve enjoyed the experience of learning what it takes to release my music independently. I love the freedom in it.
