‘We weren’t really expecting. We also weren’t trying either, but we weren’t preventing,’ the 21-ear-old told People before explaining their road to the baby news over the past few years.
‘Everybody knows Ella’s 3 now, so it’s taken me that long to get pregnant. Because for a while, I was on birth control and then I got off of birth control for a year and a half. And then I found out that I was pregnant,’ she said.
She went on to confess that they were in ‘shock’ when the four tests came up positive because, for months, they had been ‘buying pregnancy tests and they kept coming back up negative.’
‘And Josh was just kind of like, “Oh, don’t take anymore.” And I was just kind of like, ‘Well …’ This one day I just had a weird feeling and I took one and it came up positive,’ the Georgia native added.
