Bumping into your special partner does not happen as often in real life as it does in movies. For Kellie Martin, it was indeed written in the stars the way she met the love of her life who she could connect to on all levels.

When you find someone amazing by coincidence, but never to find their trace ever again, it is kind of depressing. Luckily for Martin, her soulmate was someone she could see every day. This made it easier for the couple to end in each other's arms.

The couple shares two children together. They welcomed their first child, a daughter named Margarate Heather Christian on 4th November 2006. Back in 2015, Kellie announced she was pregnant with the couple's second child. During an interview, she said:

"I am five months, which turns out as 20 weeks. I said that to my husband the other day, ‘I’m 20 weeks … I’m five months pregnant!’ He’s like, ‘You just realized that?’ I’m like, ‘I did the math.’"

Kellie added her daughter who was 9 and a half years old at the time and she was ready to welcome her sister.

Apparently, this pair had not initially planned for the second baby.

With a daughter who was 9 years old and a barn full of animals back home, the couple believed they already had too much on their plate, so they were not too keen for the second child. However, the pregnancy came as a sweet surprise.

Talking to People, Martin said:

“We really weren’t planning on having another babyIt was just one of those situations that this baby wanted to be here. She really is such a sweet surprise all the way around. She’s our bonus baby!”

When Kellie found out she was having a girl, the actress claimed she breathed a huge sigh of relief. She said:

"I know girls, so I was really, really happy to have another girl. A boy would have been a whole other thing to figure out."

The actress went on to reveal her husband had been a big help for her to adjust with the second baby. Kellie said:

"He helps me so much and he makes me brave because I find babies terrifying, which is probably why I put off having another one for so long!"

Moreover, Martin insisted, having another child was a big challenge. Her husband kept telling her it's man-on-man defense implying both of them had to take care of one each child at a time. He had one and so did she, then they'd switch later. Kellie further went on to say it was a lot more work, but they seemed to manage it pretty well.

Moreover, Martin credited her daughter for coming up with the name Olivia. Furthermore, the gorgeous actress revealed the best part about having a second child is being to savor the moments even more.
