“I spoke to him the first morning,” Vanderpump, 58, said at OK!/Star/ In Touch/Life & Style Pre-Grammys Party on Thursday, February 7. “He was just so exhausted. You can’t really give any advice to someone at this moment. You just have to enjoy it. Enjoy the moment. They’re tiny! I got a picture the moment he was born. They’re tiny little creatures and before you know it, they grow up and in college. Just enjoy every minute of it.”

She added: “I think he is ready for it because he wants it so much. A lot of people have children and they aren’t ready. I think he wants it so much and it is going to be great.”
