The parents conceived the baby through in-vitro fertilization. "Rivers is super excited," Durrett said. She further said,

There was no hesitation--none. I know that I wanted him to be the father of my kids, no matter what would happen.

Steve and Michel, who started dating in early 2005, tied the knot in 2008 after over three years of an affair. Three years after their marriage, the couple went through a harsh family problem when Steve was diagnosed with ALS(Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis), a severe motor neuron disease which causes the death of neurons controlling voluntary muscles.
