The second time parents share their first daughter Mila, who they welcomed three years after marriage. The happy couple spoke to Us, sharing praises for Mila as D’Amico, who is looking forward to being a big sister.

“A leap of faith that I could have never imagined to turn out like it did."


During their gender reveal party for their newborn daughter, Vaeda, D’Amico, hoping for a son, was described as a nervous wreck. Once the pink color was revealed, D’amico humorously ran out of the party.

The “Married at First Sight” star later confessed he was overjoyed it was a girl and was excited that Mila would have a little sister. The hilarious D’Amico joked he would chase and kill his daughter's suitors.

They had tried getting pregnant for a whole year before the happy news.


D’Amico, 37, revealed that Petta, 33 had a non-problematic pregnancy with her first child, Mila, and hoped for the same again. However, this was not the case as Petta experienced several difficulties.

The couple who revealed their expectancy news to their fans on a tv show later confessed they were cautiously optimistic with Petta’s second pregnancy. Petta shared it was not a smooth pregnancy.

“I thought by this point I would be able to breathe and enjoy this pregnancy, but unfortunately that has not been the case.”


Petta was reluctant to share the baby news until she was further in her term due to complications she faced. The pair shared the news to her followers during an episode of “Couples Cam.”

Difficulties began in her pregnancy when she started experiencing spotting and bleeding without explanation. After a trip to the doctors, Petta’s ultrasounds revealed no issue as doctors explained the issue was not fatal.

This was not the first struggle the couple experienced. D’Amico explained they had tried getting pregnant for a whole year before the happy news. This was a far contrast from their first child.

The happy couple joins a
