She also shared that while she was shocked when she found out she was having twins, her husband had an even more dramatic response.
“My husband, by the way, fainted in the doctor’s office when we found out,” Huntsman said. “I was sitting there, my feet in the stirrups with the robe on and [he] passes out and he’s got two doctors on him, wiping his face with cold towels. And then they bring in a box of chocolates and [are like,] ‘Honey, you’ve got to take some sugar.’ I look over and I’m like, ‘Are you serious? You aren’t delivering these things!'”

At the time, she also opened up to People magazine about some of her fears with the pregnancy.
“I knew something was different this time,” Huntsman told People magazine. “I was actually worried that something was wrong with this pregnancy because I felt sick immediately. I was sick with Isabel, but not until about eight weeks, so I was worried something might have been wrong.”
“When I went to the doctor I was, if anything, just concerned about it. Now, looking back, it makes sense, because I think the hormones were triple what they would normally be.”
