While in a lighthearted chat on Informed Pregnancy, Ian revealed that he took his wife's birth control and flushed it down the toilet during a trip to Barcelona. 

On Friday, the couple took to Instagram to issue a joint apology over drama that followed after the podcast.

'To anyone who has been affected by reproductive coercion, we are deeply sorry.' they began.

'...We never expected a lighthearted interview we did poking fun at EACH OTHER and how WE chose together to get pregnant... to turn into something representing a very serious matter.'

'...It's a shame that outlets chose this as their way into a very serious discussion, as we are certainly not qualified to be the faces of this topic. We are two happily married people who chose TOGETHER to have a baby. The end,' the note read.
