“Diana and Asher are filled with joy. What a wonderful time of the year to get news like this! So far, everything is perfect, and she feels great.”
Despite encountering no complications so far, the source revealed Diana Jenkins has been on bed rest since discovering she was pregnant as a precaution. Thankfully, the 49-year-old has her fiancé supporting her through the process.
News of Diana Jenkins’ pregnancy began making the rounds over the weekend after a follower dropped a brow-raising comment on her Instagram post. The star embraced the goodwill comment, responding,
“Long way to go but thank you.”

Diana Jenkins – Fertility Journey
Meanwhile, the source failed to ascertain whether Diana Jenkins became pregnant naturally or via assisted means. Diana, who already has three children, skipped the 2022 People’s Choice Awards, among other events, due to her bed rest. She looks forward to welcoming her fourth baby, who would be her second with Asher. The lovebirds welcomed a daughter Eliyanah in November 2020. Barely a year later, she suffered a devastating miscarriage, detailing it on the RHOBH season 12.
While rare, cases of late pregnancies have been recorded among older women. Such pregnancies mostly attract complications, making it necessary for pregnant older women to adhere closely to their physician’s suggestions.
