"Cleo was definitely hoping for a girl, but we very quickly convinced her that it was best [to be the only girl] because then she gets to be the only princess," Nev told People. "Beau and the other boy will have each other to play with so they won't have to bother her, which may or may not be true. But that's at least what we're telling her."

Laura and Nev’s love story began in the DMs after Laura asked to see his motorcycle, prompting an in-person meet-up that would eventually lead them to the altar. But Nev had a few skeletons to clean out of his closet before they could take their relationship to the next level.

Nev told Us Weekly that he once broke up with Laura because he was “too in love” with her. Nev explained, “I just got out of a thing, and I had been damaged by that, and I felt that maybe I was all messed up, and I wasn’t ready. I screwed it up and then I had to win her back.”

Luckily, Nev and Laura were able to overcome their differences and get their happy ending. You can catch their daughter, Cleo, on the Season 8 finale of Catfish on Tuesday, Aug. 31 at 8 p.m. EST on MTV.
