‘Tis the season! Only one day it was reported that Paul Staehle is back in Brazil with his wife Karine Staehle. Now, the pregnant reality star treated fans to another merry surprise: a festive baby bump photo! Taking to Instagram Stories on Dec. 18, Karine rocked a Santa Claus hat and showed off her bare belly.
Fans were overjoyed to see the happy couple reunited in a sweet snap posted to Karine’s social media page one day ago, showing Paul, 35, smiling while cradling her belly. It seems like the couple is still in a long-distance marriage. Paul is reportedly living in the United States, while Karine stayed behind in her home country of Brazil, so their reunion has been long-awaited. On Dec. 8, the TLC star treated fans to another heartwarming update about her bundle of joy.
“Six months of much love that makes me silly with happiness. I look forward to holding you in my arms. Thank God for you, my rainbow,” Karine captioned her photo. She also opened up to her followers during a brief Q&A session on Saturday, Dec. 1, sharing a ton of updates about her pregnancy, including her due date. At the time, Karine revealed that she is currently about 25 weeks along and about to enter her third trimester. Paul’s wife said that she is due in March 2019.
Paul and Karine are still deciding on where they want their son Pierre to be born in the next few months. A fan asked if they’re leaning towards Brazil or the U.S., and she explained, “Probably in Brazil. Here I have my mother to help me.” On their pregnancy announcement video via TLC, the proud papa-to-be said that Karine hopes their son Pierre will inherit features from both of them, like her gorgeous dark locks, and his blue eyes. So cute!
