In January, the singer and his wife spoke openly about preparing for their third child after suffering multiple miscarriages throughout the past few years.
“I was fully set on just having two children and I had prepared for that and made arrangements for that,” Lauren told People.
She continued, “We were going to have two children and it was a surprise. I didn’t find out I was pregnant till I was about five-and-a-half months pregnant. I didn’t have any symptoms; I didn’t have anything indicating that I was pregnant. One day I just — I felt something move in my body and I said, ‘Nick, there’s something not right. I think I need to go to the doctor. Something’s wrong with me.’ I was not supposed to be able to have any more children, so I never assumed that I was pregnant.”
Congratulations…And Get Well Soon!
