In a clip for their upcoming show, Jessica and Jep reveal that they had been going through the adoption process for a while, after realizing there were so many children in need, and had lost a baby prior to being able to bring Gus home.
“We got really close and thought we were going to bring a baby home, and got so excited,” she said, “and then it fell through, which is just heartbreaking.”
They didn’t let that heartbreak deter them though, and now they’re the proud parents of five kids!
The couple open up about their desire to adopt a baby and how the process was a ‘crazy, wild ride’.
