Destin and Rachel from Millionaire Matchmaker on Bravo work every week to bring love into the life of two different millionaires. In their own lives, they have a gorgeous baby boy named Sin Halo Jude Pfaff, and they spend nearly every waking hour together since they work together as well as live together.
When Sin Halo was born, his cord was wrapped around his neck, causing his heart to stop. Thankfully he was revived, but then suffered through gastro problems for the first several months of his life.
Baby-soothing had to become second nature to Destin and Rachel.
Destin says: “Rachel would sing to him when he was having all his stomach issues to soothe him, as she played music for him while in the womb. The funny thing is she sang the song Dock of the Bay by Otis Redding and it worked like a charm and calmed him down every time. She would also hold him and put on some music and dance with him to calm him down. He loves all types of music! We would also play a lullaby cd rendition of The Cure songs when he would go to sleep.”
Rachel says: “Destin is the fun one – you need someone to be comforting and someone to be goofy. He plays airplane, super baby and makes silly faces. He also always reads to him and lets him explore the world safely.”
