"He is so cute. He's a happy guy he looks so happy!" A thrilled Jennifer exclaims as she studies photos of their new son. "I could just envision myself taking him home and him running around and being part of our family."
"The moment I saw him, I knew that I wanted Ben," she later tells the camera.

Jen and Bill have undergone a well documented, and heartbreaking, battle in their bid to add to their family —after Jen was advised not to get pregnant herself, due to her skeletal dysplasia, a bone-growth disorder.
Instead, the 3ft 2inch doctor had her eggs harvested and implanted into a surrogate—who tragically lost the baby in the early stages of her pregnancy.
