On the April 5 airing of 'Mr. House Husband', Eli's wife stated, "I had to hide our marriage, pregnancy, and everything because it could've been harmful to my idol husband. Nobody could know."
She revealed, "I couldn't go to the obstetrician/gynecologist while pregnant so I couldn't look at the ultrasound. I had to examine myself and check that my baby is alive with a pregnancy test at home. At the time, there were a lot of risky situations because my health was so poor. I was afraid that something bad might happen to my baby. I think my husband knew about my struggles and revealed our marriage and pregnancy through social media while I was asleep."
Eli also revealed, "Our son Min Soo saved me as a man, a husband, and a father. If it wasn't for Min Soo, my wife and I wouldn't have been able to make it here."
