She said, ‘I was always afraid that it wouldn’t work. I think that’s kind of a valid fear if you’ve gone through something like that or just a fear of having to go through it again.’ 

Burnham, who exchanged vows with Luyendyk in January of 2019, again revealed that they were trying to conceive again during an Instagram Q&A in September.
