Matthew Lawrence Reveals ‘Game Plan’ Of Having Kids With Chili
During the exclusive interview, Lawrence was asked if he and Chilli will be having children “in the near future.” The actor responded transparently, sharing that he hopes so.
Also, the actor revealed that he and Chilli are actively trying.
I hope. This is the game plan. That’s what we’re trying to do.
The actor went on to say that his life is “in full bloom” and he’s never had the privilege of dating the singer.
My life is in full bloom right now. I’m hanging out with a great woman like Chilli. I’ve never been able to experience this type of relationship before, so it’s very special. She is a very, very special person. I wish more people on this planet were like her. We’d be much better off.
Lawrence went on to say that he admires the singer’s morals and values.
She just has her morals and her values. How she treats her family. She loves my family, so important. We come. We’re going to talk on the phone and she says, ‘My mom is calling me.’ I say, ‘Get it. I know how important that is.” The same as my mother calls me. It’s not like ‘why are you talking to your mom?!’ It’s like, ‘Oh, your mother. Talk to your mother, you know?
Matthew Lawrence remembers how he and Chilli met
The actor also recalled how the couple met. He explained that it really stemmed from a chance encounter on a plane.
So we were on this thing. We worked. We just said hello in passing and probably nothing would have come of it, but there was this big blizzard. I had to go back to work so I got them [the airline] to change my flights all around. The only flight I was able to get was a connecting flight via Atlanta. She lives in Atlanta. So she flew on this flight. So, it was really the flight, the talking, and then after that it’s like, ‘Hey, let’s keep in touch.’ That’s really what made it, and it almost didn’t happen. I mean, literally, an hour before the flight took off, they said, ‘Okay, we put you on this flight. You have to go.’ So it was something like that.
Also, Lawrence revealed that after they met, the couple decided to take things slow and form a “genuine friendship.”
It was just a real friendship, you know, for like five or six months, just talking long distance, getting to know each other, seeing each other here and there. But really, just staying and being friends, you know, let’s keep our priorities straight here. We want to know what we’re about. We don’t want to take it too fast.
The actor has been reflecting on his divorce from Cheryl Burke
Lawrence also reflected on his divorce from professional dancer Cheryl Burke during the Entertainment Tonight interview.
It has tested me and I have learned so much about myself and I am so grateful and blessed for the opportunity to grow. And that’s really what came out of it.
As The Shade Room previously reported, Lawrence was first photographed with Chilli in August, just three months after his divorce from Burke.
