In October last year, Michael told Us Magazine exclusively on how he found out that his wife, whom he married secretly in June 2016 after an eight-year-long, on-and-off relationship, was expecting their second child.

He said at the time,

I kind of had an idea that she could be pregnant … I could tell she was acting, not different or funny, but I could tell that she wanted to say something. Nicole had made this little journal for me of photos of just Boomer and I and photos of Nicole and I and experiences, and we just put like special moments in that little journal. I woke up [one] morning and she handed me the journal and said open it. I opened to the photo of them in the backyard with the pregnancy test. I was pumped!

In October 2016, Michel talked about their surprise nuptials as they revealed about their desire to expand their family.

He said on a Facebook Live video at the time,

I’ve been married for a while. A couple months. I had to keep it a secret from y’all. I had to keep it hush-hush from you guys.

He added,

Baby number two may be coming soon. Who knows, though?
