The pair have been dating long-distance for seven months, and are “excited” to grow their family.

“Nev and I certainly have no idea what we’re doing, we just know we’re doing something we want to be doing,” Perlongo wrote. “Hopefully we don’t suck at it or turn into know-it-all zombies. Mainly we’re just really happy and excited.”
