While wife Brittany tended to a doctor’s appointment recently (before the couple announced their exits from Vanderpump Rules), Jax appeared on Instagram Live, where he answered a number of fan questions pertaining to his son, his mother-in-law Sherri Cartwright, and Lisa Vanderpump before sharing his unborn child’s first 3D photos.
“We’ve got names picked out, [everyone] who is having babies on the show [has names picked out] but we’re just not announcing it right now,” Jax told a fan who wanted to know what he and Brittany would be naming their son.
Although Jax wouldn’t share his son’s name, he did confirm he and Brittany will have help once he arrives.
“[Sherri’s] going to stay with us the first few months, or hopefully the first year. We’re going to have some help just because we’re new at this and the more help, the better,” Jax explained, adding that he loves “having [Sherri] around.”
“I love my mother-in-law. I don’t know how many husbands [can say that.] I wish she was here now. I wish she was here all the time,” he gushed.
As Pump Rules fans likely heard, Sherri was hospitalized earlier this year after complications from a bladder surgery, and she recently underwent a second surgery. Luckily, as Jax confirmed to viewers, she’s doing much better now.
“Brit’s mom is doing very good. She’s recovering from her second surgery. She’s had a rough year,” he revealed.
While Pump Rules is not yet in production on season nine, Jax said he’s in touch with the majority of his co-stars, including Lisa and James Kennedy, and he also regularly speaks to fired cast members Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni.
“We check in with Lisa from time to time to see if she’s okay but it’s not safe to see people [right now],” Jax said of his relationship with the former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast member, adding that, “James is doing awesome.”
“Max and Brett I talk to on the reg. Those guys I’m pretty close to,” he continued.
Toward the end of his Instagram Live, Jax was joined by Brittany in her Jeep as she showed off photos given to her by her doctor.
Also during the chat, Jax revealed his wife will have a trainer once she gives birth to help her lose the baby weight and suggested that baby number two could come sooner rather than later.
“I mean, who knows, we could have another one right after this,” he shared.
Last Friday, Jax and Brittany announced their departures from Pump Rules as a report stated that Jax had in fact been fired by Bravo. For the time being, the status of the future of the show remains up in the air.
