Daniella, 30, is expecting her first child with fiancé Andrew Gardner, 31.
Monet only had to try once to get pregnant. She told People magazine, “I was really adamant about tracking my ovulation with the Clearblue test and got pretty good at that, so I knew exactly when we tried there was a really solid chance it could happen.”
Daniella, who starred on "Victorious" with Ariana Grande and Victoria Justice from 2010-2013, broke the news to Andrew at his workplace. She said, “I got there and just said, 'I got you a coffee,' and I stuck the test in the coffee cup. I was shaking, I was laughing, my smile was so enormous that my face was sore for a while after.”
Gardner “cannot wait” to be a dad. She shared, “He's wanted to start a family for a while… he thinks he's going to start working on the nursery tomorrow.”
Daniella expressed her desire to have a boy, explaining, “I grew up around a lot of guys in the neighborhood; I was probably one of the only girls. I also had a little brother who is still, to this day, like my kid, and I just have a lot of experience with boys. If it's a girl it will be a very new experience, which I actually look forward to, but if it's a boy, I think I'm ready.”
Monet is planning on having a natural water birth. She commented, “I'm pretty healthy and mindful of my body. I've never been much of a doctor person, so I would want to try and do a birth as natural as possible!”
