“Funny enough, for a minute I thought I was getting pre-menopausal because certain things were starting to be irregular and then other symptoms started — my memory and I was clumsier than normal which I couldn’t even believe was possible,” she explained. “Then our son got sick with a stomach virus and I caught it. Chris said, ‘No, babe, you’re a little sicker than Sebastian. You need to go and get that checked out’ and I said, ‘Okay.’ So I went and they tested me and said, ‘Oh honey, you’re not dehydrated. You’re two months pregnant.'”
The couple are parents to son, Sebastian Alexander, who just turned 6-years old this week on July 23.
