A newborn baby girl has brought DeAnna Pappas Stagliano and husband Stephen Stagliano closer than ever. The couple, married in 2011, told People about their love as parents: “I didn’t know that you could love like this. Obviously I love DeAnna to pieces and we have a wonderful marriage, but the love that a parent has, it’s just different,” said Stagliano. The now 5-month-old baby Addison Marie Stagliano has brought a happy and completely new experience to the couple. “Nothing can really prepare you for what it’s like to have a child and how your life will change, but I will say we’re really good sat it,” said the new mother. “We’re a really good team.”

How can a child bring you and your partner closer together?
Cupid’s Advice:

Being in love with your partner is one thing, but being in love with your partner while raising a child is another. The process of raising a child puts your relationship through situations to which nothing else could even compare! Through all the dirty diapers, walks in the park, and 6AM wake-up calls, your relationship can become stronger and more wonderful than ever before. Cupid has some advice:

1. Working together to raise a child makes you a team. If you’ve ever worked on a project with your partner, maybe you know a bit of what this feels like. Raising a child requires a lot of work on both ends, so when small achievements like a first step or a first word start happening, you can be proud together and know that all the wonderful things your baby accomplishes are due to the great bond of you and your partner.

2. Sharing the love for your baby is powerful. A love for one’s child is unique, but one other person can truly understand; your partner. You both have this strong, amazing love for your child and that shared love is something nobody else can have. It’s like a wonderful secret only you two know.

3. Struggling together through the process can strengthen your bond. Raising a child isn’t easy, but you’re going through all of the ups and downs with your partner. When times get tough, you can both understand what the other is feeling and be a better support system.
