Reassuringly, Bryan told Nikki that he and Brie had been in a similar place before.
“I’m somebody who needs to be told like, ‘Hey, what do you need from me?’ ‘What do you want from me?'” Bryan noted. “When we’re working our best, it’s when we both know what we want from each other.”
Supporting this sentiment, Brie shared, “‘Cause, you do get consumed too with your kids. And so, we do have to tell each other.”
In a confessional, Brie shared that she didn’t realize “how bad” Nikki’s struggle was amid Artem’s absence.
“I know how tiring it is,” Brie further commented. “I know in the middle of the night, when you’re breastfeeding for the third time, you’re just using every ounce of energy to not fall asleep on your child.”
Bryan encouraged Nikki by assuring her that motherhood is “really hard” and to not “feel bad” about her struggles.
