Touching on the subject of previous IVF treatment, John said they “figured it would never happen”. But he hinted their quality time spent at home together had made it possible for Chrissy to become pregnant again. He said the couple have “conquered” their fertility challenges.
John says becoming a father has given him a “purpose” and he has a different kind of love for his children. They can’t wait to become parents for the third time. John and Chrissy tied the knot in 2013 after they started dating in 2006. They share two gorgeous children together – Luna and Miles, with plans to extend their family in the coming months.
