However, Jephte wasn't ready to express his vulnerability on a public level when he was initially featured on the program and married his wife — more than three years ago.

Jephte and Shawniece continue to work hard to overcome obstacles in their marriage, despite the addition of a daughter to their family.
However, the pair parted and discussed divorce at some point during their time as parents, with Pierre even restarting his dating life. Eventually, though, the pair found their way back to one other.
In the year 2020, Pierre and Shawniece celebrated their third wedding anniversary. Shawniece planned a sentimental excursion to Boston's Battery Wharf, where they had their wedding night room.

"He told me that it's a past, present, and future ring, because we finally have a past, we have a present, and we have a future together."

Shawniece discussed her feelings after becoming a mother in an interview with People Magazine in 2018 and said,
"There are no words that can describe that feeling. I remember, before she was born, thinking about her features and if she'd have hair." She added, "I'm just so honored to be her mom."
In the same interview, Pierre stated,
"Seeing my daughter for the first time was so overwhelming. Watching Shawniece push her outdrew me to tears. Watching her birth has to be the best moment of my young life. It's incredible to think she's all ours."
However, Shawniece confessed on her YouTube channel that her pregnancy came as a shock to the pair. And it caused them to split up for a few months.
