“It’ll be really interesting to see who she gravitates to more,” the Bachelor star, 33, told Us Weekly exclusively on Wednesday, March 27. “Right now, she’s totally momma’s girl. Like, she wants me all the time. But Evan’s like, ‘I know that’ll change one day!’”

The ABC personality added: “Evan loves big groups and thrives in big groups, and I think she’s so like him in that way. If anything’s going on with people around, she has to be involved. … But she also sings all the time, like me, which is so cute. She has so much of both of us in her.”

Waddell and Bass, who met and fell in love on the third season of Bachelor in Paradise, tied the knot in August 2017. They welcomed their daughter in February 2018 — and are now ready for baby No. 2.

“We’re planning on trying to have another little one and getting pregnant this year,” the “Dream Train” singer told Us. “I always tell Jade [Roper], ‘You go first, and I’ll go second.’”

The fellow Bachelor star, 32, is currently pregnant with her and Tanner Tolbert’s second child after welcoming Emerson in August 2017.

Not only do Waddell and Roper’s little ones love having playdates, but the moms have “the best friendship ever.”

“When I first had Bella and we were breast-feeding at the same time, we would just sit in a room and we would be talking and just had our boobs out and that was just so normal,” the Texas native said.

The pair are launching their “Mommies Tell All” podcast on the Westwood One Podcast Network on Thursday, March 28, and Waddell says they aren’t afraid of discussing “hotter topics” than they did during their first season, “Babes & Babies.”

But when the musician needs advice of her own, she turns to her mom. “My mom and I are absolutely best friends, which I hope one day Bella and I will be the same,” she told Us. “I talk to my mom every single day. [My parents] just moved here last July, so now I get to see her every week. It’s the best thing ever. She’s my right hand.”
