He and the Utah native have been open about their plans to start a family of their own. “I don’t want to be a rickety old dad,” Schwartz exclusively told Us Weekly in March 2020. “I want to be able to run around with my kid and throw him over my shoulder and play ball with him. Or her. Slipped there. … I low-key want boys, but I’m down for two girls.”

His wife told Us five months later that they’d tried “doing the baby dance” over the summer. “We’re trying not to stress out about it and are trying to keep [our] eyes on our own page, but still be excited for someone else,” the reality star said in August 2020. “If it happens, great! That’s the main thing that everyone always says, they’re like, ‘Just don’t stress about it or don’t be anxious about it. It’ll happen when you’re not thinking about it.’”

As Maloney’s costars Cartwright, Lala Kent, Scheana Shay and Stassi Schroeder announced their pregnancies in 2020, she wrote via Instagram that she was experiencing “zero FOMO.”

In September 2020, Maloney explained, “It will happen for us when it’s right. Sometimes it just takes time and doesn’t always happen [on] the first try.”

Schroeder, 32, was the first of the Vanderpump Rules stars to become a mom, welcoming Hartford, now 3 months, with her husband, Beau Clark, in January. Maloney was named the baby girl’s godmother and marked the special moment with a sweet Instagram shot the following month.

“My Dear little Hartford, I am so happy to finally meet you today,” she captioned a February post. “I can’t wait to watch you grow, you are already so curious and can’t wait to know all your little thoughts. Maybe one day I will tell you stories about your mom and it will be our secret. I’m honored to be your God Mother, I love you.”

Kent gave birth to daughter Ocean, 1 month, in March, followed by both Cartwright’s son and Shay’s daughter, Summer, 1 week, in March and April, respectively.
