For Katie Rost, mother most definitely knows best!
During a chat with OKMagazine.com, The Real Housewives of Potomac star revealed that it was her mother that helped connect her with her new boyfriend, Andrew Martin!
“Andrew and I actually met through my mother,” Rost said. “My mom belongs to a golf club that Andrew also belongs to, and she kind of like set us up.”
Rost added that her mom had a good feeling about Martin!
“She felt like I had gone through this horrible divorce and she just wanted me to get out there and start dating again,” Rost explained. “Andrew fits the mold of the kind of guy my mom likes: He works in finance, he’s never been married, he has no kids, he makes a nice income. So he got like five gold stars from my mom.”
Considering one of her mom’s date suggestions was a first for Rost. But she admits it worked out perfectly.
“She’s never set me up with anyone,” she said. “But I had just been through back-to-back pregnancies, so I was kind of like who is going to want to mess with this really? So it ended up working out great.”
And Rost said her ex James Orsini is just fine with her new guy.
“I think that he is elated,” she said. “He knows that it’s good for the kids for them to have someone stable in their life and that I’m not kind of just bringing random people around them at least. He’s got him on speed dial, so I think that he appreciates that there is consistency.”
Things are going so well that Rost revealed she is already hearing wedding bells!
“I want to get marriage right and from the second I met Andrew, I just felt like we were a perfect fit,” she said. “It just felt different than it had ever felt with anyone else before, and so I’m always on him about I want to get married.”
But Martin may not be hearing the same tune.
“I think that this is very important, but he has been avoiding that for 44 years, so he is a hard one to catch,” Rost said.
She said that, for now, the two are just living together. And she added that she still has her own homes as well!
“I sort of moved myself and the kids and our nanny into his house and I will stay there,” she said. “I also have a farm house in Virginia and I also have a house that I have with my mom in Potomac, so I sort of bounce around depending on my mood.”
