"When my life went in a completely different direction, I knew I wanted more children," Kent said of her decision to have another child through a sperm donor. "It was so weird what happened because everyone would tell me, 'You're going to find someone.'" I started thinking, 'Why would I need another person to be involved if I wanted more kids?' '"

The "Pump Rules" star welcomed her first child, Ocean Kent Emmett, in March 2021. At the time, Kent revealed in an interview with Entertainment Tonight that she and her costars, Shay and Schroeder, had made a "pregnancy deal."

"We both have families who live in different places, so, for us, if we had kids together, they would be like cousins," she said. "They're all in the same age group and we get to celebrate birthdays together. So, I know it sounds corny and like a Lifetime movie, but that's what we're doing."
