EXCLUSIVE: Karrine Steffans Is Pregnant & Due This Summer – Live Has Never Been More Perfect!
theJasmineBRAND exclusively reports, Karrine Steffans is expecting! The New York Times best-selling author is pregnant with her second child with serial entrepreneur and public speaker, Everette Taylor. See our interview below.
theJasmineBRAND: Congratulations on the pregnancy! How does it feel to be expecting?
Karrine Steffans: Physically, I feel terrible. The nausea and insomnia are kicking my butt. But, emotionally, I am exhilarated!
theJasmineBRAND: How far along are you?
Karrine Steffans: We are still very early in the pregnancy, and keeping the specifics to ourselves. But, Baby Taylor is due in the summer.
theJasmineBRAND: Are you expecting with boyfriend, Everette Taylor?
Karrine Steffans: I have always referred to Everette as my partner, as he has been on so many different levels over the years. But, yes.
theJasmineBRAND: Is this his first child?
Karrine Steffans: Yes, this is his first child, and I think he’s going to be an amazing dad — once he gets the nerves out.
theJasmineBRAND: How long have you been dating and how did you meet?
Karrine Steffans: ET and I met in early 2016, and funny enough, we met on Twitter!
theJasmineBRAND: How is this pregnancy going and are you craving anything?
Karrine Steffans: So far, I’m spending most of my time resting and feeding Baby Taylor yummy snacks. I’m craving everything I see other people eating, but then, once I have it, I don’t want it ever again! It’s weird. Today, it’s tacos and strawberry ice cream…together. I know. Ew.
theJasmineBRAND: How does your son feel about being a big brother?
Karrine Steffans: At 22, he’s excited for us, but also, he’s 22 and has his own grown-up life filled with college, work, and friends.
theJasmineBRAND: What are you looking forward to in terms of motherhood and raising a child?
Karrine Steffans: Right now, my main concern is having a safe and healthy pregnancy and delivery. That being said, once Baby Taylor makes it Earth-side, I’m looking forward to falling in love, bonding with this perfect representation of our love, being ever-present, and writing lots of books about this incredible journey at such a significant time in my life. I am so extremely happy and hopeful. Life has never been this perfect.
theJasmineBRAND: You’ve maintained a pretty low profile recently. What have you been up to?
Karrine Steffans: Quietly mentoring women at The Gorgeous Girl’s Guide, as I have been since 2013. I’ve worked diligently to build it into a million-dollar membership based company that gives its members access to all the help and knowledge I can offer. I’m very proud of what we’ve done there. Simultaneously, I’m working as a literary agent and having such a fun time discovering new and worthwhile literary, film, and television talent. Basically, I’ve been enjoying life away from the Karrine Steffans pen name and persona, after officially retiring both in 2018. I don’t think most people realize it was a fake name and an amazingly orchestrated brand that ended when the last book published in 2015. So, once we ended touring and promotions, I was all too happy to put her to rest. She was exhausting! Currently, I’m working on a new set of books — The Gorgeous Girl’s Guide series — and I’m looking forward to adding books about balancing pregnancy, business, and family to the list…all while continuing to lay fairly low, and enjoying a pretty average life.
Congratulations to Karrine and Everett!
