Four years later, Reigns and his wife welcomed another set of twins. They now have five children together. In an interview with NBC's Today show, The Head of the Table opened up about life at home with five children.
"It's loud, it's hectic … it's one of those things when you have that many kids you really have to have a schedule and get everything in line. And almost treating it like a business, because there's just so many of them. And you have to try to delegate, and give them all as much attention as possible," he said. (H/T: New York Post)
