Tanner Tolbert tells fellow Bachelor alum Nick Viall about wife Jade Roper not wanting to have sex four weeks after giving birth

Barely four weeks ago, Jade Roper, an alum of The Bachelor and Bachelor In Paradise, gave birth to her second child literally in her walk-in closet. She posted on Instagram about the wildly unexpected circumstances under which she brought life into this world and needless to say, any mom would understand if she was off sex for the foreseeable future because, holy smokes that’s a lot to deal with.

But her husband, fellow Bachelor In Paradise alum Tanner Tolbert, thinks she should be more down with bumpin’ uglies, even though the mom of two (they have a two-year-old daughter) is not even a month postpartum from having their son. He shared his gross thoughts on Bachelor Nick Viall’s podcast this week. And let’s just say, his comments will make barf chunks rise up in your throat.

Viall jokes with Tolbert about how things are going in the romance department since his wife gave birth to their second child in as many years. “What romance?” he quipped.

LOL, so funny. Man makes joke about his wife not wanting to screw him because she’s too busy caring for their extremely young children and probably still bleeding from the vagina. I mean, she only went from broken water to holding their son in 75 minutes after giving birth on the floor of their master closet, isn’t it about time she got back to romancing her man? At the time, she wrote, “It was one of the scariest moments of my life because I felt so out of control, but Tanner, Tanner’s mom, my mom and the medics and firefighters kept me going when I felt like the world was caving in on me and my unborn baby.”

Maybe give it a beat before whining about the lack of sex in your life right now, bro. She’s got other stuff going on.

Tolbert says their relationship has “changed completely” since their first child, Emmy, was born. He says he wants more sex now but Jade “wants it less.” Well no shit, dude. SHE JUST GAVE BIRTH.

“It took a dive [when Jade started nursing Emmy] and then pretty much right after the breastfeeding stopped, we got pregnant again with Brooks,” he says. “And now he’s here and we have two kids. It is tough. I feel like I’ve begged for it. And I don’t want to feel selfish — I hate asking, I hate trying, ’cause I don’t want it to be pity sex.”

But, you know, it’s been four whole weeks and Tolbert has needs too, y’all. Eye roll.

While he acknowledges that his wife’s focus “should be on the kids, not me,” he maintains that he is feeling neglected. “I do feel on the back burner,” he shares.

Maybe he should do a little reading about how the experts recommend a new mom wait at least four to six weeks before having sex. Roper is only barely there, and also, posted recently about having “received several stitches” noting that she’s “slowly healing physically” post-birth. Let’s take this moment to reiterate — this woman gave birth by complete surprise in her walk-in closet, zero to baby in barely more than an hour. Maybe give her a minute to breathe, buddy.

Maybe Tolbert should also listen to himself talk about his wife’s life with a newborn and understand why she’s not all about hopping in the sack at the moment. “He wants Mom all the time,” he says of their newborn. “I don’t have milk here to provide.”

My dude, if your wife is nursing around the clock, the only thing you should be begging her for is to lay down and rest whenever you are around so she can take a damn break. She gave birth in your closet — it’s the literal least you can do.
