Meanwhile, Grace, 23, is married to her cousin Dylan, 24, and they have two daughters (ages 3 and 18 months) together. Though they didn’t know each other growing up, they have been outcasts from their family since getting married (her mom and stepdad were the only two people to attend the wedding from her side).
