“It was very difficult for me to have children," Emily said. "Over the course of four years I had five miscarriages. Then Shane and I decided to do in vitro and I carried twins until four months. I went into labor and I lost them.”

“I can picture the hospital room. I can picture the lights. I can picture the nurses they are all crying." Emily later on revealed that Shane is not on board with having another child. The three kids that she and her hubby share with one another were all born via surrogate.
