Cory Wharton and Taylor Selfridge are expecting a baby girl together, but is the couple thinking about tying the knot in the near future? The Teen Mom OG dad recently opened up to Champion Daily about whether or not he plans on proposing to Taylor anytime soon.
“I’m not going to pop the question yet. We’re taking everything one thing at a time,” he explained to the site.
For now, Cory has something else in mind as to what the next step in their relationship should be, and it doesn’t involve an engagement ring. Rather, he revealed that he and Taylor plan to move in together. The happy couple hopes to do this before their daughter arrives, but that will depend on whether or not they are able to find a place that they like. If they aren’t able to, Cory says they will wait until after they welcome their daughter.
While Cory seems certain that an engagement isn’t in the couple’s immediate future, the site did ask him how his girlfriend felt about things and if she wanted to get engaged sooner rather than later.
“Taylor has talked about getting engaged, but I think she knows that right now I have a lot on my plate. So she’s treading water lightly, you know?” he said.
“But it’s definitely been talked about!”
It turns out, though, that Cory may not hint about when he wants to propose. He revealed that when he decides to pop the question, he wants to ensure that Taylor is surprised.
“When I do propose to Taylor, I want it to be a surprise, too, as I want her to have it happen when she doesn’t expect it,” he dished.
Cory was also asked about Cheyenne Floyd, the mother of his daughter, Ryder. He said that he doesn’t think his ex would be upset if he were to tell her he and Taylor were set to tie the knot. Rather, he explained that nothing could “be as bad” as when he told Cheyenne that his current girlfriend was pregnant.
“So I think after we got through that speed bump or whatever you want to call it- that surprise- I think that’s probably the worst,” he said, in regard to telling Cheyenne about Taylor’s pregnancy.
Cory Wharton and Taylor Selfridge announced their pregnancy last year and recently had a gender reveal, but as his recent comments suggest, it doesn’t sound like he and his girlfriend have any plans of getting engaged right now.
