Cassie revealed that her pregnancy was unexpected. She shared in part: “While it wasn’t “planned,” it also wasn’t unplanned. We were open to having kids and had just started to explore the idea when I got pregnant. It was my husband (still getting used to saying this!) that noticed I hadn’t had my period in a while. When he said something to me, I was like, “Who pays attention to that?!” Apparently, he does. So, I took a test, and it was positive! We were both over the moon!”
She also shared that she and husband, Alex Fine, plan to raise their daughter by being supportive parents. “I want her to grow-up to feel confident in who she is and stay her course. I hope to help guide her in this by always being supportive and listening. Kids say what is on their minds; sometimes, it just may not be directly. I think that it’s our job, as parents, to tune in and pay attention to what they’re thinking and how they feel.”
On her proposal, Cassie says it was unexpected. She said in part: “Honestly, I didn’t expect him to propose as we were already planning to get married, but he definitely surprised me. I went to pick him up at the ranch in Compton, where he was working with the Compton Cowboys, and Stevie Wonder was playing. He came out on a horse with the rest of the team and told me that he wanted to spend the rest of his life with me. I was speechless. It was the most magical night of my life.”
On her wedding, she said although walking down the aisle with a baby bymp wasn’t part of the plan, she loved it. “At first, I was NOT down with the idea of being a pregnant bride! I dreamed of having champagne and dancing at our wedding! However, once I weighed the amount of time we would have to wait (hello, birth, and breastfeeding), I realized what I cared about was being his wife and our family, not about whether I was pregnant or not at our wedding. In the end, we had a beautiful intimate ceremony on a bluff overlooking Malibu during sunset. Everything was perfect.”
