Hannah quits ‘Below Deck’
Ferrier’s exit from the show wasn’t exactly a rash decision. She knew that yachting wasn’t something that she wanted to do forever.
“I think I’m probably done,” Ferrier told Entertainment Tonight. “I learned when I first started yachting in my very early 20s, you know, I would see these women who were in their late 30s, 40s, sitting at a bar, getting wasted with 20-year-olds living in a tiny cabin, and I was like, I don’t want [that]. I want this to be a good, fun, enriching experience that allows me to travel a lot, but I don’t want to get to the stage where I’m locked into yachting and there’s nothing else in my life except that.
“It’s a bit different if you’re captain, but as a chief stew? They just don’t seem like very happy people to me,” she continued.
In fact, before she even began filming season 5, she knew that it would probably be her last.
“I think that with yachting, you really have to be done-done with it before you can properly walk away, otherwise you’re constantly questioning yourself about, did I do the right thing? Should I have done one more season? Could I have done this?” she said. “I think probably a part of me knew that before going into this season.”
Ferrier took to Instagram to announce her pregnancy amid all of the drama surrounding her exit from Below Deck.
“You are already my favourite adventure,” she captioned a picture of her cradling her belly bump.
She told Daily Dish that she’s due in October and finding out she was pregnant was a little surprising for her.
“It was good though,” she said. “I think I had far more fun telling my partner.”
Luckily, her boyfriend Josh is happy to take on fatherhood.
“He’s over the moon,” she told the outlet. “He’s so excited.”
And though she’s only about halfway through her pregnancy, it has already taught her some intense lessons.
“I kind of am one of those people that if I’m sick, I give it a day or two and then if it doesn’t get better, then I just kind of ignore it and keep going, and with pregnancy, it’s not just you, so you can’t do that,” she said. “You can’t just say, ‘Oh, I’m gonna ignore that I’m feeling like this,’ because you’re harming your child. So I think that for me was incredibly frustrating, just having been so sick for maybe like two months. There were some times where it was like 10 to 12 days, just 24/7. I don’t know why they call it morning sickness. It’s very strange because it’s not. It’s all day. So not being able to control that and not being able to feel better, just my normal life was difficult.”
But she feels like now she has gotten past the most difficult part of her pregnancy.
“I’m feeling so much better now,” she said. “It’s very tiring. You just get tired a lot easier. But apart from that, I feel good.”
