Remember how Charlotte desperately wanted a baby on Sexy and the City? Well, now Kristin Davis is helping real women have kids on a new reality show dubbed Labor Of Love and we’re already hooked. The actress Zoomed with Ryan Seacrest on Thursday, May 21, and dished the show’s been in the making for years now.
Kristin hosts the FOX show which follows Kristy Katzmann, a 41-year-old account manager who was also a contestant on the 11th season of The Bachelor. Yes, the one where Brad Womack infamously decided not to continue dating either of his final two contestants.
“The concept is that we wanted to investigate what it’s like to be a woman — it was me and a bunch of other women producers talking for years literally, Ryan, about this — what it’s like to be a successful woman and suddenly you wake up and you’re over 35 and you haven’t found the right person to have a baby with but you really want to have a baby.”
Kristin added that they met Katzmann and she was perfect for the series.
“She really already wanted to have a baby, was already on that journey,” Kristin explained. “But she really wanted to find a love connection and a partner.”
Kristin and producers spent over a year looking for eligible bachelors for Kristy, who are also successful and dying to be parents.
“We challenge those men every week in different ways to see if they’re actually ready and how good of a partner and parent they’d really be,” she added, including one challenge involves an actual bear. “It’s about who are you going to protect first? Yourself first or Kristy?”
The best part about being involved in the wild new reality show though for Kristin? Getting to spy on the contestants!
“I learned a lot!” she joked.
