WHIRLWIND ROMANCE

The couple tied the knot on February 23, 2018, in New York City Hall, just weeks after they met. For their lowkey wedding, Emily wore a striking pumpkin orange pants suit and a black fedora with a net veil to add a bridal touch.

Sebastian was casual in a white jacket and matching chinos, and amber-framed sunglasses.  Nearly three years later the happy couple are taking an even bigger step, welcome a child together.

Emily has joked that Sebastian is not experiencing any of the more unpleasant "side-effects" of pregnancy, and believes that even though he claims he would be happy either way, he secretly yearns for a boy to watch football with. She said:

"My husband likes to say that 'we’re pregnant. I tell him that while the sentiment is sweet, it’s not entirely true. I resent that his entire family’s DNA is inside of me but that my DNA is not inside him."
