Like many married couples, BiCol’s been asked time and again when they wanted to have a baby. As Billy wrote on Instagram, “Been praying to God for this, and for years, the answer was 'not yet.' Fast forward to today, and God has blessed us in His perfect timing.”
Even though they found out earlier in the year, Billy and Coleen took different factors into consideration before revealing the happy news. They were extra cautious during the first trimester, but as the pregnancy progressed, keeping mum proved to be harder.
Pulling off this big a secret wouldn’t have worked without the help of their family and closest friends. Watch their latest vlog for their reactions, Billy’s own response and thoughts on becoming a dad, and the couple’s message for fans.
