Erica’s late husband died from brain cancer. At the same time Spencer and Erica found themselves widowed and single parents of multiple children.

The couple met on a social media group for widows and widowers. Spencer said meeting Erica was “love at first sight” and relocated his family to be near to her in Utah.

During the show, the couple bickers over who kissed who first however, Erica seemed pretty certain that it was her who made the first move. She said after their first kiss she knew they’d get married.

Was Spencer in a car accident?

In 2017, Spencer was in a car accident with his previous wife, Aimee Shemwell.

Aimee sadly passed away. The couple met at 18 years old, dated for two years and within a year they had their first son, Brayden.

The father of four, and step-father of seven, explains during The Blended Bunch of the difficulty he had in telling his children of their mother’s passing. He said: “Being single with four kids, it was hard and I thought that there was no way that I could ever love anyone like Aimee.”
