Kathy added, ‘It’ll be our first grandson, so we’re very excited,’ adding that Nicky was ‘very, very happy, really happy’ in her pregnancy.
Nicky and James, who have been wed since 2015, are parents to daughters Lily Grace Victoria, five, and Theodora ‘Teddy’ Marilyn, four. The couple confirmed to People that they were expecting their third child this past January.
Nicky was on hand at Sunday’s event, speaking about fashion for ABC’s On the Red Carpet at the Oscars alongside modeling icon Roshumba Williams and meteorologist Leslie Lopez.
Kathy said of Nicky, ‘She’s great, working hard, you wouldn’t know it but she’s got the bump,’ while Rick said ‘she did a great job today announcing on the red carpet.’

Nicky last year opened up about parenting amid the pandemic in an April 2021 chat with the brand Dotty Dungarees.
‘I strangely liked the not leaving the house for days at a time,’ she said. ‘There was something so cozy about being locked down with my family. That quality family time was definitely the silver lining of the pandemic.’
She said the turbulent timeframe ‘really taught us all how precious life is and to be grateful for what we have’ and served as ‘a reminder to appreciate the smaller things in life we often take for granted.’
Nicky spoke with People last year about celebrating Mother’s Day with her family.
‘Mother’s Day at our house usually consists of lots of time in the kitchen and cooking a big breakfast,’ she said. ‘Then my girls love to bake, and they know I love to bake, so I’ll make some cupcakes or brownies. Last year, they made me a big collage. They took all of my photos and cut them up and made this huge collage of my husband and I, our wedding pictures, our pets, everything.’
She added: ‘I do love Mother’s Day. It’s nice to have a special day dedicated to you.’
