A brand new role! Pregnant Ashley Tisdale is going to be a mom, expecting her first child with her husband, Christopher French.
The actress, 35, debuted her baby bump in a Thursday, September 17, Instagram slideshow. The mom-to-be cradled her stomach in a white dress in the social media upload.
Tisdale wed the composer, 38, in September 2014 and exclusively told Us Weekly five years later that it was “crazy to balance everything” as a married woman.
“I think that pretty much every night we hang out, and pretty much on the weekends we’re like, ‘OK, let’s do a specific night where we’ll do a date,’” the New Jersey native explained in January 2019. “We both know what our priorities are. We both know that we’re always each other’s No. 1. So I think that’s really how you balance your relationship with work.”
Later that same year, the former Disney Channel star shared a series of Instagram Story videos documenting French’s first time watching her in High School Musical 2.
“Does anybody know what this is? Because I’m subjecting my husband to watch it,” Tisdale told her social media followers in December 2019. “He’s never seen any of them.”
Not only did she jokingly ask the California native whether her tankini was “sexy” and whether her character, Sharpay Evans, was his “type,” but Tisdale also asked whether he would have watched the franchise as a teenager.
When French said, “Probably not,” his wife replied, “Not your cup of tea? You were doing some other crazy stuff in high school? LAME. He wasn’t cool enough.”
As far as their family plans, the singer said in July 2019 that she and French weren’t in any rush to have kids. “Whether you’re traveling or you have work or education or you’re married and not ready to have a kid yet, there are options out there,” she said in a birth control ad at the time, noting that it wasn’t “the right time” for them.
Tisdale added, “For me, it’s like, it’s OK to not want to start a family right away. People are always asking me about that, but it’s just not the right time. And I have options out there.”
