Nickelodeon’s official “The Loud House” show page reads: “As the only brother in the house with five older sisters, five younger sisters and one bathroom, life in the Loud house can get pretty crazy. From unwanted makeovers to exploding science experiments to getting the perfect seat for the family road trip, there’s no problem too large–or bedroom too small– for Lincoln! And despite all of the headaches, he wouldn’t have it any other way.”

The news got major attention on Twitter, after user @leodavinci posted a clip featuring the couple. The response has been largely positive for how the couple is being integrated into the show, which seems to be following trends of representing realities of the real world within mainstream media.

The episode featuring them will air tomorrow on Nickelodeon at 8pm ET.
