‘The Bachelorette’: Clare Crawley and Dale Moss Are Already Talking About Having Children
After a Bachelorette record-setting engagement, Clare Crawley and Dale Moss are talking about the next steps. After Thursday night’s episode aired, they informed fans on Instagram that they’re currently house-hunting. And they’re also talking about having children.
Clare Crawley and Dale Moss ‘talk about babies all the time’
Crawley and Moss were on the Bachelor Happy Hour podcast on Nov. 6 where they talked about wanting to have children sooner rather than later.
“What I love about Dale is that nothing scares him,” said Crawley. “I talk about babies all the time and he’s like, ‘Yeah, that’s what I want.’ I’ll remind him of things all the time, you know, ‘I’m not getting any younger!’ I’ll say things like that, and he’s like, ‘You think I don’t know this? Yeah, let’s do this.’”
“As long as we’re together, for me, that’s all that matters,” chimed in Moss. He also added that he’s looking forward to having “so many babies” with Crawley. “We’re building a life. We’re building a foundation.”
Dale Moss and Clare Crawley on someday raising biracial children
Moss spoke about growing up in a biracial family on the podcast.
“My mom’s side disowned her because she married a Black man,” he said. “I grew up in an all-white community where I couldn’t stay at my friend’s houses when I was a kid. We had to really fight for respect and to make our place in the community in which I grew up. This is something that I’ve been around since the time that I was a little kid.”
Moss says he knows he and Crawley will have to “deal with some of these things.”
“But there hasn’t been a worry or anything like that,” he said. “We just get through everything together just like we would in any setting.”
Crawley says she feels fortunate to have a partner like Moss who “makes it so comfortable” to talk about tough issues.
“Our babies are going to be mixed and they’re going to face those kinds of things and they’re going to have those questions,” she said. “Hopefully we will have so much progression by the time our little babies are grown up, but it’s like, he just makes it so comfortable that we can talk about this and that it’s not an uncomfortable elephant in the room. … It’s not a negative thing. We’re proud of who we are, what we are.”
The South Dakota native says he’s confident he and Crawley can work through whatever challenges arise for them in the future.
“I think the biggest thing is, we know that we can come to each other for anything,” he said. “There’s no judgment, there’s no worry, and that’s what’s so important about having a relationship and building this. And we both lean on each other for advice and perspective in some of these situations.”
