By Kirk and Laura Knight

Kirk: I have really been putting a lot of thought into starting a family with Laura. I truly needed to make sure that I was ready to have a child and couldn’t just succumb to any pressure. One of my fears was waiting too long and being in a situation similar to my father’s, where he is spending his retirement years still tending to young children. I’ve loved being a young father and I want to be an active role model for our future children. Laura’s going to be a great mom and she is already a great caretaker for me and our household.

Reality TV Stars Are Ready to Start a Family

Laura: Kirk and I have been talking about having a baby for years – agreeing that we wanted to have a child together, but not sure when exactly the “right time” would be for this next chapter in our lives . I’ve gotten to a point in our relationship and love where I am ready now. At 34 years old, my clock is ticking. I began to worry that Kirk was never going to be on the same page as me. Just as I was having my doubts, my husband surprised me with his own revelation – he too was ready for a baby!!! Tears welled up in my eyes with joy at this happy news.
