Watch: "Vanderpump Rules" Star Lala Kent Welcomes a Baby Girl

Vanderpump Rules' first look at season 9 is, unsurprisingly, all about babies. 

The first clip from the Bravo unscripted series' upcoming season was posted to the network's official Instagram account on Wednesday, April 28. In the footage, a pregnant Lala Kent and fiancé Randall Emmett chatted with Katie Maloney-Schwartz and Tom Schwartz about little ones. 

"We made it—37 weeks," Lala shared about her pregnancy journey. "I'm like so proud of my body."

After Randall asked Katie if they're trying to conceive, she replied, "I thought once we pulled the goalie, it would like happen right away." Katie then suggested to her husband, "Maybe you should go get your sperm tested?"

Lala, who announced daughter Ocean's arrival in March, asked Tom what he wears while he sleeps and promptly shared, to no one's delight, "Randall's a free-baller."

Bravo captioned the teaser, "SNEAK PEEK AT #PUMPRULES SEASON 9 [siren emoji] Babies, Bubba, and free ballin', oh my! Drop a [baby emoji] if you're as excited as we are!"

The footage arrives after E! News exclusively reported on April 27 that the show is set to resume full production next month. 

"Filming will begin early May," an insider shared. "Some have filmed here and there on their own."

Vanderpump Rules Pregnancies

Bravo had confirmed that the new season will include Lisa Vanderpump, Tom Sandoval, Ariana Madix, Scheana Shay, James Kennedy and Raquel Leviss, in addition to Lala, Katie and Schwartz. Potential new cast members could be added after filming resumes. 

There have been a number of cast departures since the season eight finale that aired last summer. Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute were fired in June after co-star Faith Stowers revealed the pair called the police on her with a false claim. (Stassi and Kristen have both apologized.)

Additionally, Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni were dismissed in light of resurfaced racially insensitive social media posts.

In December, Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright announced they would not return to the show

Bravo has yet to announce a premiere date. Watch the above footage to see Tom describe an odd fear involving his naked body and an owl.
