The Valley Star Nia Sanchez Opens Up About How Her Marriage Changed After Kids: 'So Many Moments of Tension'

Nia Sanchez loves being a mum – but admits her marriage changed fundamentally after having children.

Valley star, 34, appeared on the Friday, May 10, episode of The Between Us Mom podcast and shared how her marriage to husband Daniel Book has changed since the two had children. The couple shares twins Isabelle Marie and Zariah Rose, 10 months, as well as son Asher, 2.

“There are so many moments of tension and it’s a game of comparison… ‘I’m more tired, no, I’m more tired.’ ‘I changed two poopy diapers, can’t you change this one?’ We both don’t want to do it, but we’re going ahead with it,” Sanchez said on the podcast.

“People are watching [The Valley] and say, ‘Oh, you’re so great,’ and yes, we are because we have a super strong foundation, but we also go to each other, just like anybody else,” the former Miss USA continued.

“We’re just trying to get back to a good place unlike the other couples on the show,” she noted. “I didn’t know they don’t come back to a good place after a hard time.”

Last year on Father’s Day, Sanchez and Booko welcomed their twin girls, revealing their exciting news on Instagram.

“Father’s Day was extra special this year,” Sanchez wrote in her caption, sharing posts of their newborn twins at the hospital. “We welcomed our two little angels into the world at 2:07pm. Isabelle Marie – 5 lbs 8 oz and Zariah — 5 lbs & 6oz.”

“We are absolutely in love and have been soaking up every magical moment with these little ones. We can’t wait to share more soon!” She added.

This past March, Sanchez and Booko published their experience diagnosing “Twin Anemia Polycythemia Sequence” (TAPS), a condition in which “blood flows unequally between twins who share a placenta (monochorionic), resulting in one fetus receiving more red blood cells compared to others,” according to the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.

“We’re in the first phase of it. It wasn’t good news,” Booko says in the video. “But we prayed that it would normalize on its own, and that’s what we’re going to check now.”

The video then cuts to a scene where the two are joking around and acting frivolously in the doctor’s office while they wait for the scan. When the video returns to their car, they are both in tears, and Booko shouts, “Yes!”

I cried, you cried, Sanchez said looking back on that moment. “We were praying for a miracle, literally. This often doesn’t get fixed, but it does reverse and we’re back to normal.”

Sanchez went on to explain that their doctor didn’t tell them they were close to stage two complications at the time they were diagnosed, which makes the turnaround even more important.

“Then they would have to start giving steroid injections to develop the baby’s lungs for a super crazy early delivery, like three months early,” she explained. “But it’s the other way around, thank you Lord.”
