Whilst in the official podcast description, it reads: "This podcast explores all of the trials and tribulations of married life with a couple who might seem very similar but couldn't be more different."

Opening up, Aljaz added: "I was beside myself. I feel like I've been thinking and dreaming about that moment for so long. We were preparing for IVF mentally and physically and then it was just a relief to finally have that positive test. I have so much respect for any parent that goes through IVF, not just for what it puts them through physically but mentally too."
