Fans everywhere were shocked and disappointed. Kevin took to Instagram to confess his affair so his friend who was extorting him by threatening to leak the footage, had no power. Eniko went radio silent and disabled her social media accounts. Since then the two have reported being stronger than ever and are even expecting a second child.

Now in a recent The School of Greatness podcast interview, Kevin opened up about what the pair went through during the salacious and public scandal. Kevin said Eniko ultimately decided to stay with him when she "came to an amazing conclusion of, ' I like the fact that we have a family, that we have a household, and I like the fact that we now got a job to do to get better.'" His pregnant wife demanded "'That's what you owe me. You owe me the get-better.'"

Apparently, Eniko is very strong-willed and tough and Kevin said "She held me accountable," and it "wasn't a walk in the park. But it was her understanding that we don't let the outside world affect our inside, and I credit her for setting that tone."

Both Kevin and Eniko opened up as well in his Netflix series, Don't F**k This Up where Eniko recalled sobbing in anger and said "It was a lot for me, but we've been through it, we've gone through it, we passed it and he's a better man now because of it."

Best of luck to both of them and their beautiful growing family!
