Jamie Otis and Doug Hehner are returning to the small screen in their own Lifetime spin-off titled Married at First Sight: Jamie & Doug Plus One.
“In our new spinoff, the joys — and struggles — as first-time parents will be out there for all the world to see. First of all, everyone knows giving birth is no joke, but who the heck knew the recovery would be excruciating for days?! And I’m not even talkin’ C-section,” Otis told ET. “I could barely walk, let alone go to the bathroom! And breastfeeding, that’s another one that isn’t talked about (and I’m guilty as charged being a labor and delivery nurse!).”
“But let me tell ya, there is NOTHING more amazing than looking down to a sweet face that resembles you and your hubby — and no greater feeling than knowing you created this precious being. All of the firsts as parents is captured in our new series — and it’s quite raw,” she continued.
The couple met on the first season of Married at First Sight in 2014. They announced they were expecting their first baby in 2016 but lost him four months into her pregnancy. Then the reality couple welcomed a baby girl, Henley Grace, in August.
The new show will follow Jamie and Doug’s journey as new parents and the ups and downs they encounter along the way. It will also include the poignant moments leading up to the birth of their daughter, who is the first ever Married at First Sight baby.
Married at First Sight: Jamie & Doug Plus One premiers with a two and a half-hour special on December 19, at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Lifetime.
