Jay explained, “Mimi called me during my lunch break on set and told me.

“I was sitting having lunch in the sun and all of a sudden I got hot and started sweating. I was a bit shocked!

“Before that, Mimi had said she wanted to take a pregnancy test and I said, ‘Pregnancy test? That’s a lot of money, especially with the rising cost of living.

In his interview with OK! Magazine, he concluded, “Then I was at work and she decided to throw a wrench in the works over lunch!”

She said the two were at the age where they can “really help out,” adding that KaiBo was like a “second mom.”

Mimi concluded that it worked “perfectly” for the children, as they had already asked for a baby brother.

Jay recently took to Instagram to announce a fifth family member, posting a photo of himself, Mimi, KaiBo, and Zian.

In the caption, he wrote: “Soon a family of 5”.
