Finally, Kevin made his decision when Nicholas and Franny were born, and he re-proposed to Madison. 

“Let’s make this official,” Kevin told Madison. “I know we’ve been engaged, but not engaged engaged. We’ve been dancing around the weirdness of it all. But I really want you to be my wife. I want to be a family.”
