Decker told Cambio that the show is about their wedding and "juggling our careers, getting ready for a big season coming up and we just moved into a new house ... just every day life-the good stuff that goes on, the struggles and getting ready for the big day."

James announced on Twitter last week that the couple is expecting their first baby. The child is reportedly due in March.
