In her accompanying blog post, Peyton explains that the couple underwent in vitro fertilization to conceive Lyla, and were about to do the same for baby No. 2 (“I just assumed that was how we would create all of our babies”) when they received a pleasant surprise.

“It’s funny how things work out. In April we went to visit our IVF clinic to find out the process for transferring one of our frozen embryos. We were lucky to have 3 frozen from my first retrieval in 2016,” she recalls.

“As I was waiting to start my cycle in April I found out I was pregnant! Yes, naturally!” Peyton shares. “Talk about a complete shock. We tried for years to get pregnant the old fashioned way and it didn’t work. How in the world is it happening now?”

The family are going to “wait to be surprised” as far as the sex of their baby goes and are extremely excited for their new addition, but Peyton admits there have been some downsides too.

“I have been sick as a dog, but I am finally coming around as we just passed the first trimester,” she explains. “The exhaustion is no joke, especially with a very active toddler running around.”

That active spirit might actually come in handy with a new baby, though. As the mom-to-be reveals, “We can’t wait to see Lyla James as a big sister. She is so nurturing and loves taking care of her baby dolls so I think and hope that will transfer into a real baby. Fingers crossed!”
