Grant is the proud father of two babies that bring so much happiness and joy to him and his wife, Chanel Mailloux Cohen. But the lovely young couple weren't the only ones who were completely absorbed by having these kids in their life. When they broke the news that Chanel was having the couple's first baby, they did it at Maggiano's Little Italy, an LA-based family-style Italian restaurant. Both Darryl and Nini were elated. Their family was expanding, and they were thrilled to become grandparents for the first time. Victoria was planning on being the best auntie they could ever ask for. They were just starting to live their lives and it was exciting.

Becoming a grandparent for the very first time was even more thrilling and exciting than Darryl and Nini could've ever imagined. Grandparents can be the bedrock where the family stands. They can be the voice of reason and help guide both your grown-up child and their baby. It's pretty mind-blowing to realize your baby is having a baby!

Even though Chanel was the one who was pregnant, the Cohens couldn't help but sympathize a little too much with her ever-expanding belly and growing pains. In a weird way, they were a bit more excited than Grant and Chanel were!
She Was Doing Great Too

But Grant wasn't the only one who was excelling in his professional life. Victoria went on to study Information Engineering & Management at Southern Methodist University in Texas, but she wasn't only interested in submerging herself in school books. While she was living in New York, she landed an internship at PepsiCo. Her managers were so thrilled by her performance, that as soon as she graduated, they offered her a full-time position at their Chicago office. Victoria was a California girl at heart, but she realized she needed to take her chances and move forward in her career. She decided to take their offer and move. But that decision lead to an unexpected turn.
Something Was Amiss

After working at PepsiCo for a few years in the supply chain department, Victoria couldn't help but feel like she was missing something in her life. She moved away from that department and switched to a role in Shopper Marketing. Perhaps, all she needed was a change of scenery. But that didn't fulfill her either. Victoria was faced with the difficult reality that perhaps, this wasn't her true path. She eventually stepped away from the corporate world and started working on a project she was passionate about, but it also terrified her to the core: yoga.
