Adds Williams, “I love that he decided to join us on the 4th of July – his birthday will always be a huge celebration.”

Williams and Bricken’s older son Bradford “Ford” Powell is 19 months.

In an interview with Momtastic earlier this year, Williams revealed that she’d had multiple miscarriages before Ford was born.

“For years I was pregnant then not pregnant, pregnant then not pregnant. It was devastating,” she shared, adding that finally welcoming her little boy made her feel “so much gratitude.”

“I feel like had I not been through what I went through, my gratitude wouldn’t be as deep as it is,” Williams said. “All of the nuisances of motherhood seem, I think, smaller than they would have.”
