As for how she discovered she was with child, Lauren realized she was pregnant while on safari in Africa after she and Thomas had temporarily stopped trying on their own. After struggling to conceive, they decided to adopt, she told People magazine.
“When we began the adoption process, we said, ‘Let’s wait, let’s give this adopted child his or her time with us and then we’ll continue our family’,” said Lauren. “So I was convinced it was food poisoning.”
“We tried to get pregnant for a little bit before,” admitted the 27-year-old. “It was a good chunk of time and our family is extremely fertile, so I was expecting it to happen easily. I was like, ‘Maybe this is the Lord’s way of telling me adoption is what he wants me to do.’ And I was okay with that.”
The couple adorably met as kindergartners. The pair were married on Oct. 12, 2012, and will be celebrating their five-year anniversary soon.
Congrats, you four!
