The 90 Day: The Single Life star Molly Hopkins is now planning on taking an important step in her relationship by introducing Kelly to her 10-year-old daughter Kensley for the first time.
In PEOPLE’s sneak peek from the upcoming Sunday’s episode, Molly was seen sitting with her new boyfriend Kelly who is a cop from New York, where she was preparing him to meet her daughter Kensley for the first time.
Speaking to the cameras, Molly says, “Even though he had seen her on FaceTime and talked to her almost every day, and they have built that rapport with each other when you just have a conversation with Kensley, it’s very hard to understand that she actually has a disability.”

Mentioning that her daughter Kensley was born with special needs, the 45-year-old star thinks it is important for Kelly to know how his interactions with Kensley might be like.
“When you have a child that has a fragmented chromosome and approaches life in a different way, and you’re in a new relationship and it’s time for them to meet your kid, you have to have the conversation to really let your partner understand your kid,” says the mother of two.
While having breakfast with her online boyfriend, Molly gives him some details about how actually her daughter Kensley is. “She’s brilliant. When she’s talking to me when I’m upset, her reasoning and logic is so smart. She has normal conversations with you, she uses big words in the right context, but she can’t tie her shoes.”
Then emotionally, Molly also told him about how sensitive to conflict and physical touch is Kensley.
“It’s not easy, this is part of my crazy world. She’s going to come today and everything may be just fine, but you never know when something might happen,” she added.
