After their marriage, he and his wife Erin tried to become parent not on one occasion but two. After serious complications, doctors revealed that Erin could get pregnant, but she could not carry the baby.
Soon after their heartbreak, they tried to explore new options and decided for in-vitro fertilization. Demetrius and Erin went through series of medication to create multiple eggs in Erin’s body.
The medication had serious side effects like weight gain, fear, and anxiety but the couple remained determined to have a baby of their own. In the second attempt, doctors were finally able to plant two embryones in the body of the surrogate mother, Jamie Armstrong.
In an interview, Demetrius said that he is somewhat of conservative and wanted to try one embryo at the time, but Erin and Jamie had other thoughts, who went for gold. He added:
“And we asked our surrogate. She said, ‘Go for two!’ So literally I got outvoted.”
On 2nd March 2016, Jamie gave birth to twin daughters of Demetrius and Erin. He then posted the pictures of his twin daughters on Facebook and named them Harlow and Hadley.
