Julie told OK! over the summer about how sweet her husband has been with her while she’s been pregnant, saying,“He’s been patient with me, especially with my ‘mommy brain.’ I went to go pick him up from work one night and I was sitting in front of the wrong building! He was laughing about it, so he’s been very patient with me. He came with me to all my doctor’s appointments.”

The new mom added that her mother ha given her advice on how to get back into shape after having the baby.


“My mom has that all planned out for me. She’s recommending these Chinese herbs that, according to my sister, who has two boys, it’s the most nasty thing you’re ever going to drink and my mother is going to insist upon it," Julie told OK! "I don’t know if it’s a daily thing but it looks like she went into the woods and got sticks and leaves and boiled them into this tea. It smells nasty. It’s usually very bitter tasting. It’s supposed to get your body back into top shape. It’s supposed to heal your body quickly after going through labor.”

The Big Brother hostess laughed to OK!, “I have all these weird rules my mother was going to impose on me — like you can’t leave your house for a month” after giving birth."

We hope she's not stuck inside with those strange herbs for too long!
