“We have not shut the factory down, and I can’t tell you when we will, to be honest,” Deon told Us in February 2022. “From my perspective, I just have that empty nester fear. I want to always have a child, a baby, in the house with us. That’s how I feel.”

Karen echoed Deon’s statement, adding, “I can’t say that I am 100 percent there yet as far as [our family] being complete.”
