Gabby Petito's parents and their spouses have moved in together following the unexpected death of their daughter.
The 22-year-old's biological parents Joe Petito and Nicole Schmidt revealed they are now under one roof and mourning the loss of Gabby together with their respective spouses.
The modern family said it's one of the best moves they could have made and they are leaning on each other amid the tragedy.
Speaking about their new lifestyle on Dr. Phil, the family's attorney explained why he decided to move them into one house.
"When we heard the news, we — because this is a big media case — we didn't want media going to Nicole's house," Richard Stafford said during the part two interview airing on Wednesday.
"So we left, and then ended up getting a house so all the families and their children could be together and they could grieve in private alone," he explained.
When Dr. Phil questioned if the move had helped Gabby's parents, the late vlogger's mom, stepmom, Tara Petito, dad, and stepdad, Jim Schmidt, all agreed it had.
"Very much so," Tara chimed in with Joe adding, "More than you know."
"There's not too many people that can understand," Gabby's father continued. "You feel sorry and you can emphasize, especially if you're a parent, you get it in your head but until you're there, you don't have a clue."
Revealing that the decision to move in together was almost a full circle moment, Nicole added, "Gabby always wanted us to live in the same house together so she kind of got that."
But it's not just four adults living in the home. Gabby's siblings are in there too!
"I think it's really special for our younger children because they were able to bond with each other and distance themselves from what was going on and they were all together," her stepdad said. "We could be together and talk about the things we were talking about and take the time to be with them and plan her memorial."
The foursome has been continued to show a united front as the FBI and local authorities continue to search for Gabby's fiancé Brian Laundrie.
The 23-year-old was on a cross-country road trip with Gabby when he returned home to Florida on September 1 in her van without her.
Gabby parents — who allegedly tried getting answers from the Laundrie family to no avail — reported their daughter missing on September 11.
Her body was found in Wyoming on September 19. The coroner later ruled her death a homicide.
