The couple’s pregnancy news comes after they suffered a miscarriage in 2017. Opening up about the emotional and heartbreaking experience on her blog, Kristen wrote that they first learned there were complications when she was nine weeks pregnant, after they went in to have an ultrasound.
“Having a daughter, almost 1 year old, we knew what the screen would show and we were prepared to fall in love all over,” she continued, adding that instead they were confronted with “a tiny glimpse of something, but not developed enough to make out head from sweet little tail.”
Ten days later, after going in for a second ultrasound, the couple learned they were entering a chapter which Kristen called “wait to lose.”

Kristen added, “Remember this, this one in three walks with you. I am one in three. I have lost. I am one.”
