The couple is the parent to four children, Bernald Jr, Kevin, and their two daughters, Maya and Aaliyah. Despite the trials and tribulations in the previous part, Upshaws stick together and find love and find a deep sense of love and comfort as a family. Bennie and Regina’s elder son makes a revelation about his homosexuality in the last episode. Regina also confronts her exam failure with the support of her spouse, children, and sister.
