In 2021, Bret was warmly welcomed by his family after returning after 4 months. According to Daily Illini, He moved his flight back a couple of hours, and when he got to Jersey late in the morning, his family welcomed him with open arms.
Jen said, “Oh, I should have gotten it on camera.” “I couldn’t wait to see him either.” The girls were screaming, “Daddy, Daddy,” which made the dogs bark. My oldest daughter is all about her dad. She just gave him a hug. And he gave her a hug. Then he had both of the girls. Like it’s a memory I’ll never forget, but I really wish I had taken a picture or video of it. But it was a special time for everyone.”
After the initial excitement of seeing her husband again, Jen finished packing up the rental home she had lived in for nine months with her kids and sometimes Bret. In the meantime, Bret stayed out of the way so Jen could be a supermom and keep the girls entertained.
