Gary was glad the family dinner went so well (aside from the blackout cake drama).

And I loved the stuff where my family finally meets Brad's mom and sister. I'm very close with my family and love them very much, so it was really important for me that they have a good experience while filming. We both appreciated that it was a lot to ask of both our families to meet each other after all this time (weird, I know!) on camera. But everyone got the celebratory spirit with which we were approaching this, and it ended up being so much more special that it kind of did make it worth the wait.

I knew my mom and Debby would hit it off and was so glad to see their conversation in my parents' kitchen. We had so much fun and both moms have stayed in touch since that day, which makes me very happy. And I was totally right about the dates of everything discussed on the show and usually always am right about that stuff as I have a great memory.
