Ashley Hebert met her prince charming, J.P. Rosenbam, on season 7 of The Bachelorette.
The couple has since gotten married, welcomed a baby boy, Fordham, and relocated from New York City to South Florida.
OK! magazine got the chance to catch up with the Rosenbaums — who have partnered with Puffs Tissues — on all that they have been up to in the past few months and on their future plans.
Ever since the Rosenbaums welcome baby Ford on Sept. 30, Ashley has been staying at home with her son.
But the former Bachelorette star tells OK! that she is finally ready to get back to work as a pediatric dentist.
“I’ve taken some time off to enjoy mommy hood and enjoy all those baby moments,” she says. “But I’m starting to work as a pediatric dentist in Miami next month, so it’s all starting.”
In the beginning, though, Ashley will only be going back “part time.”
“I think I’m ready to get back into the swing of things, but I’ll be able to balance it,” she says. “Do a few days with Ford and a few days working.”
She does know that it will be hard to part with Ford at first.
“It’s definitely going to be tough, especially to be leaving him to be cared for by somebody else,” Ashley admits. “But I think it’s important for your sanity to get away and then come back. I think that it’s almost like you’re a better parent if you have well balanced life.”
J.P. on the other hand is working full time in real estate development and is no longer spending part of his month in NYC.
“I’m down in Miami full time,” he says. “When we first moved, I was commuting back and forth spending 5 days up here and the weekends back down in Miami. But that’s been over since about Labor Day and I’m down in Miami full time.”
And as a couple, the Rosenbaums are already talking about expanding their family again.
“I want to have another one very soon, as soon as I can,” she says. “As soon as we can, when I can.”
“We’re not actually trying but we will keep them close in age — 2 or 3 years apart at max,” J.P. adds.
And as far as their past, Ashley and J.P. don’t have many regrets about their time on ‘The Bachelorette.’
“It turned out so well, it’s hard to have any regrets,” J.P. says.
“Yeah, it’s hard to have regrets, right?” Ashley agrees. “Because if we changed something, we may not be where we are right now.”
But Ashley does wish she would have been a little bit more brave on the show.
“I think I probably would have been a little bit more confident in myself and my feelings and trusted myself a little bit more,” she says. “I know it’s easy to second guess yourself when you don’t have family around you or people to kind of bounce ideas off of, so I think I would have trusted myself a little bit more and not have been so hard on myself.
J.P., though maintains that there is not one thing he would have done differently.
“I don’t really have any regrets,” he says. “I didn’t make an ass out of myself.”
“I was maybe a little cheesy at times, but I ended up with the girl, with a son,” J.P concludes. “So far, the story’s been great. I wouldn’t have changed a thing.”
