After Emily returned home to Salina, Kansas, they eagerly awaited Kobe’s visa approval. However, due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic slowing down the process, Kobe and Emily have been apart for over two years.

Due to the delay, Kobe ended up not being able to be with Emily during the birth of their son, Koben. In fact, this will be the first time Kobe will be meeting his son. Kobe is ready to reunite with Emily, meet his son Koben, and become a family. Will the connection still be there for the couple?

Despite the comments about weight, Kobe and Emily’s physical attraction is strong. Emily’s father warns her not to get pregnant again. He tells her, “One thing’s for sure, you better not get pregnant.” The trailer cuts to Kobe and Emily kissing on her bed.

In the next scene, Emily opens a pregnancy test package, saying, “I can’t believe we’re doing the pregnancy test right now.” And based on Kobe’s “Oh my God” reaction, it appears that Emily didn’t heed her father’s warning.
