Baby number 3 is due and the couple is balancing homeschooling their kids while prepping for birth. Marquis is the only person allowed to go to the hospital with Camillia and once he is there will not be able to leave, so the couple may be in lockdown at the hospital for days.

CRYSTAL AND LUIS – Southern California

Luis and Crystal’s Mexican wedding is all planned and their families who live in Mexico are pressuring them to come down and get married. Unsure if they will be able to get back into the U.S. if they travel to Mexico, the couple is debating whether to take the risk or devise a new wedding plan.
