While planning their second wedding, Lani made an interesting discovery. “Days of Our Lives” viewers were thrilled when the character told Eli that she was pregnant again, and even more excited when the couple found out that they were having twins. In addition to their big baby news, Eli and Lani planned a July 4 wedding. The ceremony made “DOOL” history as it was the first time that the soap had aired the wedding of an African American couple, per Cheat Sheet.
Following the nuptials, Lani and Eli settled into married bliss and eventually welcomed their children, Carver Malcolm and Julia Harriet. Sadly, things took a dramatic turn when the babies were kidnapped by Vivian Alamain (via Soaps in Depth). Thankfully, the two police officers tracked down their children and they were returned to the arms of their parents.
Eli and Lani are now both working with the Salem PD and raising their twins as a happily married couple.
