First comes love
, then comes marriage
, then comes … well, not so fast.
No baby carriage yet, but the recently wed former Bachelor
and Sean Lowe
, fresh off their Tahiti honeymoon
, are, in fact, moving in together.
"Catherine's unfortunately going to have to move into my [Dallas] bachelor pad for a while," Sean says with a laugh. "It's a total dude place that I used to love but it's not meant for a newlywed couple."
The pair, who had been living separately in Dallas prior to the wedding – much had been made about their saving themselves until their marriage, even prompting Jimmy Kimmel to submit them to a lie-detector
to test their chastity – will now focus on the next step: a dream house.
"We're in the process of trying to build a home," reveals Sean. "Of course, start to finish that's going to take years, so we're going to find some temporary housing in the next year."
Will there be any room for the pitter-patter of tiny feet?
"We're building a house in anticipation of our future kids," says Sean. "It will be big enough for at least two or three!"
