Back in June, Alexis reflected on how he was feeling going into a second pregnancy. He explained that he was more confident this time around. "We're not first-time parents anymore. I feel more confident about having a newborn, all of those things that I just had zero confidence about with Olympia because I’d never even been around babies at that point in my life," he said. He also admitted that he's "definitely forgotten what it's like to have a new one around" and might be in for a "rude awakening."
