It is the second time they wowed their fans in weeks with their display of affection. On their Instagram, they both captioned sets of photos they shared on Friday, September 17, 2021 “Baby shower vibes.”

You changed my life and now we are beautifully linked forever to raise a little us. I pray our son has your glow. Your heart. Your mind and your spirit. I will protect you and our son with everything.”
