In 2020, Jasmine Roth welcomed a new baby and a new HGTV show, and it’s all because the home renovation expert managed to film Help! I Wrecked My House while pregnant! Read on for details of Jasmine’s very busy past year.
Jasmine Roth welcomed her baby in April 2020.
Jasmine and her husband, Brett Roth, have a five-month-old daughter named Hazel Lynn. They welcomed Hazel into the world on April 21, 2020, and the newborn tipped the scales at 7 pounds, 3 ounces.
“It’s a scary time to bring a child into the world when it feels like up is down and down is up, but as soon as we saw her precious face all the fear and anxiety melted away,” Jasmine told People at the time.
In October 2019, after Jasmine and Brett revealed that they were expecting, she blogged about her pregnancy surprise. She told fans that came back from a vacation in Greece with “serious nausea” that she chalked up to motion sickness. Nevertheless, she persisted, pushing through the nausea to attend the red carpet premiere of the HGTV show A Very Brady Renovation.
At the event, one of Jasmine’s favorite HGTV execs said to her, “You know, you shouldn’t really have motion sickness anymore — I bet you’re pregnant.”
Was Jasmine Roth pregnant during filming?
Jasmine, rock star that she is, filmed her new show Help! I Wrecked My House in her third trimester.
“The running joke [on set] was, ‘Hey Jas, not sure but I think you might be pregnant.’ Ha! This joke was funny because, you guys, I wasn’t just a little pregnant while filming this show, I was SUPER PREGNANT,” she revealed in a recent blog post. “I was 7-8.5 months preggo, and let’s be honest, especially in my line of work, it wasn’t something that could be ignored.”
Jasmine’s pregnancy meant she had to avoid paint, dust, fumes, and — hardest of all — stress. “If any of you have remodeled a house, you know it’s almost impossible not to be a little stressed,” the 36-year-old wrote in the blog post. “Factor in a TV timeline (usually 6 weeks) and a film crew, and it’s a recipe for STRESSFEST 2020 … Soooooo, I took on smaller renovation projects, relied on my team like I’ve never done before, and left the heavy lifting to the demo crews.”
Taking a step back was easier said than done, Jasmine explained. “Thank goodness I did, though, because I was flirting with pre-term labor,” she added. “My doctor was really close to putting me on bedrest and that wouldn’t have been good.”
Jasmine’s team even bought her a custom chair so that she could direct the renovations from a seated position. “So yeah, I sat on my butt and worked extra hard on the things I could focus on,” she wrote. “The design, the functionality of floor plans, the special things that make a house feel really personal. For those that are watching the show, you already know I really couldn’t totally stay away, but at least I tried!”
