Gentry and Hadley lost their two-year-old son Dobbs after a truck driver, Matthew Blair Deans, hit their car from behind.
Hadley was eight months pregnant and doctors had to perform an emergency c-section delivery. However, the baby boy named Reed passed away two days later.
Gentry, Hadley and the truck driver Matthew were all aged 28 at the time. Matthew, who police say was distracted while driving, was charged with involuntary manslaughter and sentenced to one to three years in prison. He served one year and three months.
During his trial, Matthew apologized to the distraught parents, who publicly forgave him.
Gentry and Hadley have also been sharing their healing process on their Facebook page, where they also announced that they were expecting twins.
In a 2015 post, they said: "God has our boys in a place of peace, so I am in a place of peace."
