To reveal that Scruggs, 33, is pregnant, she and Kennedy FaceTimed loved ones. When they answered, the duo didn't say anything, but held up the positive pregnancy test and waited for them to understand.

The pair called Kennedy's former E! News colleague Giuliana Rancic and her husband Bill first. Bill let out a string of profanities in excitement before Rancic, 47, walked over and jumped up and down for joy at the news.

"Shut up," Justin, 27, said on FaceTime. "Shut up. Oh my God."

"Uncle JJ," Kennedy said.

When they called Justin's wife Hailey, 24, she squealed, "Oh my God! There's a little person in there!"

"Oh! Great!" Shriver, 65, exclaimed when the couple gave her a call.

He and Scruggs exclusively revealed to PEOPLE on Wednesday that they are expecting their first baby after fertility struggles and a lengthy IVF journey.

Before telling their friends, the couple told family members, beginning with Scruggs' twin sister, followed by both sets of parents — who Kennedy told PEOPLE "lost their minds" at the exciting news.

Scruggs told PEOPLE on Wednesday that the most difficult part of IVF "probably was having four alarms set every day for months taking medicine."

But despite the difficult journey, Scruggs and Kennedy have come out on the other side stronger than ever. "Not to sound cliché, but it really has brought us even closer together because we have never been through this before, and it's been really special supporting each other," he said.
