Kate Chastain shared she’s “excited” to be a single parent in the near future. The Below Deck alum recently announced her pregnancy, and her due date is reportedly this spring.

The 40-year-old was also a castmate on Peacock’s The Traitors, which showcased several stars from Bravo, including Kyle Cooke from Summer House and Reza Farahan from Shahs of Sunset.

In an interview for Page Six’s Virtual Reali-Tea podcast, Kate opened up about being a single parent.

“I’m fiercely independent,” she said, via E! News. “I don’t really love people’s opinions being different than mine, and trying to make me go their way. So I really am so excited that I’ll be able to do this exactly how I want to.”

Kate explained that Brandi Glanville — her Traitors castmate — is already giving parenting advice.

“She texts me pretty much every day,” said the star. “If I could read off the texts that I get from Brandi, I mean, they would go viral. She is the funniest human I’ve ever met. She’s also so intelligent and so kind.”

“She does give great parenting advice,” she continued. “And it’s always done in such humorous, direct Brandi style.”

Regarding the upcoming birth, Kate shared, “I feel so great … I have my own little baby traitor holding me hostage for four more months.”

Regarding what makes her nervous about parenthood, the star quipped, “Honestly, I like sleeping in and I’m also kind of lazy and selfish, so I feel like that’s gonna be an adjustment … But I just figure if I love this child as much as I love my dog, everything will be fine, and people are assuring me that I will.”
