“Postpartum has been hard on my body, but cuddling with these precious little loves makes my heart so full,” the Little People, Big World star posted on Instagram, next to a photo of daughter Ember meeting Bode for the first time. “What an honor it is to be their mama.”
The couple gave birth to their first child, Ember, in September 2018, and Audrey revealed complications following that delivery as well, sharing details of the medical struggles she faced and the troubles she had breastfeeding her first child.
“The first 24 hours with Ember were bliss, but after that it was as if I went back into labor again,” Audrey previously explained, adding that she she suffered from “severe engorgement, too much milk, not enough milk, blisters, bruises, clogged ducts, and mastitis.”
In the summer of 2018 the coupe revealed that they were quitting their show to focus on other endeavors and allow their children to grow up without cameras.

Miracle Of Miracles

She also posted a sweet message of love to her hubby.
“I just have to say how thankful I am to be married to a man that makes me feel cherished, cared for, and confident, especially in these final days of pregnancy. He has gone above and beyond these last few weeks to help me feel more at peace in what can be a very anxious time for expecting mamas,” she wrote. “So thank you babe.”
