Nico Tortorella and Bethany C. Meyers are expecting a child!
The Younger star, 34, and the be.come project founder, 35, are expecting their first child together, according to a rep for the couple. The long-term couple married in 2018.
“We’ve been trying to conceive for almost two years, and we’re thrilled that our baby decided the time was right. It’s not easy, as anyone who has experienced infertility will tell you “PEOPLE obtained a statement from the couple.
“After months and months of heartache and unknowns, we’re finally seeing how much magic and healing this process has already provided,” they say. “We still have a long way to go, and we know that some days will be more difficult than others. But today is a holiday. We are one step closer to becoming parents today. It’s all your fault, baby.”
Children are ‘definitely on the horizon’ for Nico Tortorella and his wife, Bethany C. Meyers.
Tortorella has previously spoken out about the actor and Meyers’ fertility journey together. Tortorella discussed her fertility struggles with Spotify’s Call Her Daddy podcast host Alex Cooper last September.
“It’s a painful procedure. I only wish we had learned more about how to get pregnant rather than how not to get pregnant. It’s dreadful “At the time, Tortorella stated.
“I’m at a point with sex where I think it’s f——-g stupid,” Tortorella laughed. “Don’t get me wrong: I adore sex; it’s a beautiful thing, an extension of love. But, from a physical standpoint, the idea of a quick fix is similar to getting high. It’s like getting off the bus. Right now, I’m just living in a different, higher chakra, so to speak.”
Tortorella also stated at the time, “Right now, I’m only having sex to get pregnant. I haven’t had sex with a guy in over two years. Since February of 2020, I haven’t had sex with anyone other than my partner. That’s strange. In the 15 years we’ve known each other, we’ve never been this monogamous and straight. It’s been a painful process.”
“I’m addicted to and in love with the idea of having a child soon, and all of my energy is focused on that person.”
“It’s okay to put my ‘alternative’ sex life on hold for a minute,” Tortorella said. “It’s not going away completely. It twists and turns.”
Tortorella previously told Entertainment Tonight that Younger costar and mom-of-three Hilary Duff influenced Tortorella and Meyers’ desire for a home birth when the time comes.
“Hilary is an amazing woman, and the ways in which she has brought these children into this world are amazing. They’ve inspired us to have babies at home, right in the master bedroom’s small bathtub, with everyone else present “At the time, Tortorella stated. “There’s something very special about how she lives her life and literally carries people.”
