Six days after matching, the pair went on their first date. It must have gone well as just six months later they moved in together. In 2016 they became parents to their first child, a son named Mikael, and by the summer of 2018, the couple were ready to say “I do.”
Even before their wedding, Jørstad and Staarup knew they wanted to give their son a brother or sister. They naturally conceived again and headed in for their first ultrasound, excited to find out if they were going to have a boy or girl “to fulfill our family,” Jørstad wrote on Instagram.
But the appointment didn’t go as planned. “We had our first ultrasound at exactly 13 weeks and got the biggest surprise of our life. Total shock,” Jørstad wrote, alongside an image of her crying on the way home from the hospital.
