Candiace Dillard Bassett, former Real Housewives of Potomac star, showcased her blossoming baby bump on the red carpet.

Attending the GRAMMYs on the Hill Awards, Candiace, 37, dazzled in a floor-length, fitted red gown. This marked her first public appearance since revealing her pregnancy with husband Chris Bassett.

“I can’t wait to see everyone!” Candiace expressed her excitement before the event. The singer, about 13 weeks pregnant, radiated joy and elegance as she hosted the prestigious event.

Reflecting on her journey to motherhood, Candiace shared her initial reservations. “I realized that I was never going to be 100 percent ready,” she confessed. However, her trust in the process and her doctors eased her fears.

Candiace’s Motherhood Journey

In January, Candiace underwent in vitro fertilization (IVF), leading to the confirmation of her pregnancy two weeks later. Her journey into motherhood aligns with a period of significant personal growth and transition.

Embracing her new era, Candiace exuded confidence and grace on the red carpet. Her dazzling attire and glowing complexion perfectly complemented her excitement for the impending arrival of her first child.

“It’s been weird, but also really wonderful, I think, to keep it kind of to ourselves to this point,” Candiace shared about her pregnancy journey. She emphasized the importance of trust and faith in navigating this new chapter.

While eagerly anticipating the gender reveal of their child, Candiace hinted that their personality may mirror Chris’s. With three children from previous relationships, Chris brings a wealth of experience to their growing family.

As she embarks on this journey, Candiace bids farewell to RHOP after six seasons. “I am filled with gratitude for the enriching friendships, personal growth, and moments of introspection,” she expressed.

With new opportunities on the horizon, Candiace’s red carpet debut symbolizes not just a celebration of her pregnancy but also a testament to her resilience and optimism in embracing the future.
