Kayla said that she’s wanted kids ever since she met Tobi, and it’s something they have always talked about. “It turns out that when we were ready it was just perfect timing. I think he will make the most perfect father, I’ve never seen him so excited about anything. He has already planned the funniest fluffy outfits for our winter baby and he talks to my tummy every morning and night.”
