It’s been a long and difficult journey for Jamie Otis and her husband, Doug Hehner, who’ve been trying to expand their family for the past three years.

However, the Married at First Sight couple has a lot to celebrate right now because Jamie is pregnant!

The couple shared the happy news on social media, and fans couldn’t be more excited for the duo after many failed attempts.

Jamie has been very open about her fertility struggles, and her followers know that it hasn’t been an easy road for the 37-year-old.

In 2016, her son Jonathan passed away after being delivered at just 17 weeks gestation, and she’s been celebrating his heavenly birthday every year since.

She also has a tree planted in honor of her angel baby, who would have turned eight years old this year.

The video showed the moment when Jamie took the test and waited for the results.
