"I think that, you know, sometimes things happen when you just least expect it. It was the last thing that I was really planning on," Kim shared on Hoda Kotb's podcast Making Space. "And so when it did happen, we were kind of, like, 'Oh, my God, I wasn’t planning on this. And this isn’t even what I was thinking of,' and it just makes it that much sweeter and so much more fun."

She continued, "We all know someone that’s been through a really hard time in relationships and everyone’s been OK and everyone comes out OK," she explained. "So you just have to, like, let yourself go and open yourself up to receive something and just be a good person and you’ll get that back."

Pete, on the other hand, will have to deal with the tattoos dedicated to Kim and her kids he got inked during their courtship. Not only does he have her name branded on his chest, but he also has “my girl is a lawyer" tattooed on his clavicle. Another tattoo he dedicated to Kim is the “KNSCP" lettering on his collarbone.

The letters are believed to be in honor of Kim and her four children: North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm.
