Becca Kufrin Shares Peek Inside Bachelorette Group Chat Ahead of Jenn Tran’s Season - E! Online (2024)


Bachelorette Jenn Tran's Plan to Deal with "Racism" & "Haters"

Becca Kufrin and her fellow former Bachelorettes would like to steal Jenn Tran for a sec.

Because as the physician assistant student officially begins her journey on the ABC love hunt July 8, The Bachelorette group chat is likely to see a flurry of activity.

The text chain is a way for the 23 leads to "all stay connected," Kufrin explained in an exclusive interview with E! News. "And every time there's a new Bachelorette that her season is airing, she comes into the group and everyone welcomes her."

But while the founder of Bourdon sparkling wine is there to make friends with the other franchise alum, admitted Kufrin, "I haven't really caught up with the show in a couple years."

As it turns out, parenting 9-month-old Benny with husband Thomas Jacobs—the Bachelor in Paradise contestant who made her feel as if she could see forever in his eyes—means she can't always be on the couch for the right reasons.

Between parenting, two recent moves and seemingly endless home renovations the San Diego-based pair have "just been so busy," admitted Kufrin. "So that's where all of my focus is going right now. Beyond that, I don't have much time to just chill and watch that much TV."

Besides, she's plenty entertained by her little man.

"We're really just trying to enjoy each different milestone as it happens," the 34-year-old said of parenting with Jacobs. "He’s very hyperactive, loves to climb, loves to crawl, loves to just be go, go, go."

She's predicting his first steps will be coming soon, but for now she's enjoying some other big moves.

Take his latest skill that involves him using his Pampers Free & Gentle wipes to clean up after meals.

"He knows how to pull them out, and so we'll show him how we wipe it down," Kufrin described. "He also, like any baby, loves to rip things. And so the fact that these ones are so strong and don't tear are also fun for him. So we're not only cleaning, but we're learning while we're at it."

The couple—who tied the knot in courthouse vows weeks after Benny's September arrival—are also leaning into the magic of parenting.

Still tight with Paraside alumTia Booth, "We got Benny and her son Tatum together back in April for a little Disneyland trip," Kufrin said of Booth's 19-month-old. At the time, she joked, Benny "was kind of just a blob at that point and couldn't do much," but it's sure not to be their only trip to the happiest place on earth.

"Once he's a little bit more mobile," Kufrin said of future play dates, "and we can bring him places where he can go run around with the kids, I'm sure it'll be different."

Though by then, Kufrin could have accepted Jacobs' proposition to expand their squad.

Joking that the real estate broker "wanted another baby the second we brought Benny home," Kufrin admitted the idea has grown on her.

"He's only 9 months, so we still have time with him and I love just having the undivided attention with him," she explained, "but I am getting to the point where it's like, okay, he's becoming a little bit more self-sufficient and independent. Maybe we could have another little newborn at some point within the next two years."

For now, though, she's enjoying getting to watch Benny bloom.

She gets a thrill out of teaching him new things like "how to use these wipes to wipe down his own messes," she explained. "Just seeing him pick up on things and start to know his name and who Mom is and who Dad is and who his grandparents are, just to see the way his mind works and what he gravitates towards now has been so fun."

Watching him satisfy his growing inquisitiveness has been the highlight of the past year.

"People always say they want to have that childlike curiosity and youth again," she continued, "and so to be able to live vicariously through him has been such a blessing and so much fun for both Thomas and myself."

Of course they're not the only franchise alum living that almost paradise life. See the other couples who feel they could not ask for more.
