Tim Lewis and Alisyn Camerota have three children together. Their daughters are fraternal twins. Francesca and Alessandra were born in 2005. Younger brother Nathaniel arrived two years later.
Camerota spoke publicly about her struggle to get pregnant. She explained in a TODAY show interview, which you can watch above, that she and Lewis spent three years struggling to conceive, starting at age 35. Camerota used the NBC interview to talk about the importance of having a support group when battling fertility issues.
Camerota also wrote about the struggle in a 2010 piece for SELF Magazine. The couple decided to try in vitro fertilization. They got pregnant twice, but both resulted in miscarriages. Camerota described Lewis as being “supportive and wonderful” throughout the ordeal. “I thought, This will never work, we will never have a child, I will be deprived of this thing that is so important to me—a family. He always said, ‘We will have a family whether by hook or by crook.’ He was open to adoption—that was very comforting to me.”
They became pregnant with their twin daughters during the fourth IVF cycle. Camerota said that getting pregnant with her son was a happy surprise; she didn’t realize she was pregnant until 16 weeks.

Camerota wrote, “I became a student in a master class on how to have a solid relationship. Watching Matt and Maria’s marriage gave me a vision for how to act in a partnership. Moreover, Maria took me under her wing and doled out some loving tough medicine on things I need to work on.”
She ended the article by stating, “I don’t know if Maria cast some sort of magic spell on me, but somehow the man she described is exactly who I’ve been happily married to now for 14 years. Maria helped me open my eyes and my heart to a long-lasting relationship. I don’t think I could have figured it out without Maria’s love, patience and wacky wisdom.” You can read the full piece here.
