“SURPRISE!!

The two met on the set of Roe’s makeover show Plain Jane where Hunkin worked as a director. They married in October 2016 in the English countryside.
Roe wrote in-depth about her pregnancy in a blog post, sharing that she began making lifestyle changes in preparation for a possible pregnancy, such as adapting a regular sleeping schedule.
She writes she was suffering from a cold when she decided to take a pregnancy test before ingesting medicine.
“I was just about to take some Dayquil when I thought – you know what, I should probably take a pregnancy test just to be sure. I took it casually, expecting it to be negative so that I could pop some meds and get rid of my horrible cough and headache. When I picked up the test, I thought I was hallucinating – there it was… PREGNANT! I showed Mackenzie, then frantically sent him out to pick up about 5,000 more tests for me to take. Each one came back the same,” she wrote.
The blogger revealed she was over five months pregnancy, and has learned to adjust to the changes her body is undergoing, such as cutting back on work.
“I’m definitely a workaholic, which to me is a sign that I love what I do. It’s been a learning process to take on less projects, work shorter days, take napping breaks (which I’ve become professional at), and generally altering my lifestyle a bit,” Roe writes. “While I’m trying to pack in as much as I can before the baby comes, I’m also trying to be extra aware of my energy levels and give my body the rest that it needs.”
While Roe and Hunkin both know the sex, Roe writes they won’t be releasing that information yet — although fans can expect Baby Hunkin to land in January 2018.
