"There was a moment where it did seem like the relationship was a no-go at that point," Jeremy shared. "I just remember thinking one thing is I can’t give up. I don’t have the faith to give up."


The pair are now parents to two children

"That was something for me that was really tough," Jinger added, speaking to Us Weekly.

"I don’t like to think about that day. I don’t like to think about that time. But realizing that, OK, that’s something that could help someone [with their own relationship issues] because it’s something that everyone’s going to have to walk through - will we be able to come together as two completely different human beings from different backgrounds and make this work?"

Jinger and Jeremy now live in Los Angeles and are parents to two daughters.
