Desiree Hartsock, The Bachelorette

Mother knows best!

At least, that's what Desiree Hartsock is hoping when she visits the hometowns of her final four suitors to meet their families in this Monday's all-new episode of The Bachelorette. And it seems Desiree is putting her quality time with each family to good use judging from this exclusive sneak peek we got our hands on, which shows our Bachelorette sharing a private moment with Brooks' mother and admitting she's worried Brooks isn't serious about their future.


Before the two ladies in Brooks' life sit down for some girl talk, Brooks' mom gushes over the couple's interactions at a family dinner, saying they are looking at each other "with a love was very tender to see that happening," she gushes.

But things quickly turn from mushy-gushy to serious when Brooks' mom asks Desiree if she could see herself marrying and having a family with her son. "I see the potential in that," Desiree says, before admitting she does have one concern about Brooks: "The main thing I was wondering was if he was ready for marriage because he has mentioned that he wasn't sure coming into it."

Watch our exclusive clip above to see how Brooks' mom responds!

The Bachelorette airs Monday at 8 p.m. on ABC.
