The pair – who have been married since 2019 but together for over a decade – spoke about their decision while preparing for Tom, 39, to undergo sperm specimen tests.
Katie, 34, told her husband prior to their appointment: “I was filling out the paper work and it asked if I had ever been pregnant before so that is going to come up in the consultation.”
Sitting next to her on the couch, the TomTom owner replied: “That’s okay, I feel like we made the best decision before.”
“We absolutely made the best decision. Listen, it was so early in our relationship and we were so uncertain about our future,” the former Sur server agreed.
“Exactly. We were unsure about the next day,” Tom explained while Katie added: “I knew I wanted to have kids but I just knew that was not the time in my life.”
He then confessed: “If we had had it, we would’ve broken up.”

While Katie appeared calm during the scene, in a confessional, her voiced was more emotional as her eyes welled up with tears.
She explained in more depth: “I actually had an abortion about 10 years ago. Tom and I had been together a year and it was not pretty.
“We fought all the time and we wanted it to work out but if anything, I thought he was going to leave and I was going to be a single mom.
“Every woman and ever person should be able to decide what’s best for them.”
Tom added in his own confessional: “When I found out Katie was pregnant, I thought ‘this can’t be.’
“We use condoms, we’re always so careful. And I had less than $300 in my bank account.
“If she wanted to have the kid, I would have manned up and found a way to make it work if I have to. But I’ll never know what would’ve happened.”
However, the scene concluded with the pair saying they are ready to star a family.
“Now it’s something we’re ready for. You’re going to be a good dad,” she told her husband/
“And you’re going to be a great mom. There’s not a lot about in life I’m certain about but I know 100% I’m going to be a good dad,” the bar operator said confidently.
