Jamie Otis and Doug Hehner, the Season 1 power couple who tied the knot on March 23, 2014, are still together and head over heels in love! But their journey together has been anything but ordinary.

In July 2016, they shared the joyous news of expecting their first child, only to face heartbreak with a miscarriage just a week later — but they didn't lose hope! They announced their second pregnancy in February 2017, and their daughter, Henley Grace, brought immeasurable joy when she arrived on Aug. 22, 2017.

Jamie and Dough from 'MAFS' are expecting twins in 2024.

But wait, there's more! On Feb. 20, 2024, Jamie surprised everyone with the news of her fourth pregnancy, exclaiming her gratitude for the blessings despite the hurdles they've faced.

"I'M FINALLY PREGNANT!!! I wanna scream it from the rooftops!!!" she excitedly wrote on Instagram alongside a video of a positive pregnancy test. "I can't thank YOU enough for praying for us! GOD IS GOOD!!!"

"It's been over three years of trying," Jamie added. "I've been diagnosed with secondary infertility, a blocked fallopian tube, MTHFR, hypothyroidism, 'low-normal' AMH, [and] advanced maternal age, and I'm probably missing something else that was thrown at us ….. BUT GOD WILL WORK MIRACLES IF YOU BELIEVE!"

And if that wasn't thrilling enough, they recently revealed in March 2024 that they're expecting twins sometime around September 2024! Jamie expressed her delight with People, revealing, "I've always wanted to be a twin mommy. My little sister and brother are twins, but my mom said it'd skip my generation and go to my kiddos, so I never expected I'd end up with twins!"
