7 LITTLE JOHNSTONS is all new tonight on TLC, with back-to-back episodes and we learn something very special about Trent and Amber Johnston. They know how to keep things fresh.
With five children, multiple pets and in the middle of a home renovation, we’ve watched as the Johnstons dealt with teenage drama, pulling off a pre-planned vacation despite illness and more.
Tonight we watch them come to grips with trying to make meals without a functioning kitchen in the middle of the remodeling project, but perhaps more importantly, we get a snapshot of Trent and Amber’s love life.
These busy parents are still a married couple who know how to spice up typical days and since it’s Valentine’s Day, why not?
There’s a date night on tap, shared with Trent’s sister and her boyfriend and then special time at home. Amber’s a huge fan of the “50 Shades of Grey” series of books and likes to share.
In the EXCLUSIVE video clip posted below, the couple’s guilty grins and hesitant way of speaking about the content of Amber’s texts is both adorable and admirable.
“I think it’s super important to keep the spark alive,” Amber explains, “We can get so wrapped up with five kids and work…I think it’s important at the end of the day to make sure we have that extra special connection.”
“A lotta’ times I’m at work and I get these hot mama texts from Amber,” Trent says, adding “…and wow.”
Yes, wow about sums it up. Nobody can accuse the producers of 7 LITTLE JOHNSTONS of spoiling the family reality show with titillating content. It’s all pretty tame, and great to see.
TLC airs two new episodes of 7 LITTLE JOHNSTONS Tuesday nights at 10 p.m. ET/PT. Image/video credit: TLC, used with permission
