They have also opened up about their new lives in their parenting column for HELLO!. Last month, the couple took the plunge and decided to relocate their daughter into her own bedroom. "My dad said, 'You should start putting her in her own bed or you'll be making a rod for your back later on. I think you should do it,'" James explained.
