“My body felt super weird. I didn’t know what was going on,” Marcille shared with PEOPLE. “I went to the doctor and because of my symptoms, he decided to do an ultrasound and… lo and behold, we were seven and a half weeks pregnant. I was like, ‘What?!’ I was expecting the worst only to find out I was carrying a life. It was crazy.”
