However, Cambria faced serious complications during the process of delivering her babies. Due to this, she had to have a hysterectomy, which means that she will never be able to get pregnant carry and have children again, as reported by Daily Mail.
The couple was saddened by the news as they already wished to extend their family of 6 to more. Already having four children, the couple desperately wanted to have a fifth child. Nonetheless, they didn’t think that was possible until Jeff’s mom, Nancy, stepped in.
