‘MAFS: Happily Ever After’ Sneak Peek: Shawniece & Jephte Grow Closer After Pregnancy Scare

The two were on the verge of a divorce in last week’s episode.

Shawniece and Jephte are being forced to bond, fast, thanks to their surprise pregnancy!

In this sneak peek clip from tonight’s Married at First Sight: Happily Ever After, Shawniece fears she’s leaking amniotic fluid and could give birth early. After a visit to the doctor, Shawniece discovers she was simply leaking urine because the baby is positioned deep in her pelvis.

While Shawniece admits it’s “kind of embarrassing” to talk to Jephte about this, she realizes, “I can’t be embarrassed. I’m carrying his baby!”

Jephte agrees, telling the camera, “Shawniece’s body is doing a lot of crazy things, and we’re still only 11 months into our marriage, and it’s crazy, because usually these are things I probably would have found out within years of a relationship. We fast forwarded through a lot of things.”

While the two were on the verge of a divorce after last week’s episode — Shawniece took away Jephte’s wedding ring when she found out he was “messing with other girls” when they were separated — it seems the baby’s health was a wake up call for the couple.

To see Jephte and Shawniece handle the aftermath of the pregnancy scare, watch the video above! 

Married at First Sight: Happily Ever After airs Tuesdays at 10pm ET on Lifetime.
