That night, they ended up kissing each other in the kitchen of her apartment. Lindsay was impressed with the way he behaved like a perfect gentleman. They had roamed the peaceful auction together, drove to the after party in his car, and he had even dropped her to her apartment.
When they reached her apartment, he asked her permission to walk her to the door, but she relented. However, they ended up kissing in her kitchen.
Things went casual for the next six months. But in April 2009, Melvin called her telling that he wants to take their relationship to the next level. Unfortunately for Melvin, Lindsay refused his proposal being aware of the consequences of work-romance relationships.
Her refusal made Melvin extremely unhappy. Thus, the period of separation began in their relationship. But soon, he started calling her again, and It didn't take them long to be good friends after they started talking about each other experiences, friends, family and the people they were dating.

Family Of Four: Welcomed Second Baby
They welcomed their first baby boy on 11th March 2014. The named their son Delano Joseph Melvin. In 2016, they revealed to the world that they will be welcoming yet another baby. Then soon-to-be mom of two Lindsay professed happiness about being pregnant.

"It’s a tad overwhelming, but we’re getting the hang of it. The worry for us, is that you love your little boy so much, when you have a second, are you going to end up dividing that love? Turns out you just multiply it. It really is amazing."
Could the married duo be open to having a third baby? The veteran MSNBC's statements certainly seem to indicate so.
