In an interview with People Magazine, the couple said: "We tried for several years, and we didn't think it was going to happen for us."
According to People, the couple's daughter, Ella Bleu, 10, "reacted with joy" at the news of the pregnancy. The couple lost their son Jett who sufferred a seizure while vacationing in the Bahamas. He was 16 years old. Sources close to the family have said that "they can never replace him" and that they "always wanted to have more kids."
They are genuinely appreciative for all the support and well-wishes they've been revceiving from fans about the new family addition. "We are so moved by the generous outpouring of support and goodwill we've received from all over the world," the pair said.
