Bill and Jen started their journey home from China with their newly adopted son Will on the latest episode of "The Little Couple." It was their first challenge as parents, as babies can have difficulties on plane rides. But the new parents took to their roles with ease and joy.

Jen gave Will a stuffed animal she called a "flyin' lion" to comfort him on the flight. She said she'd had one when she was little, too. And it turns out, the "flyin' lion" worked like a charm.

“Watching Jen engage Will, and Will smiling back at her, it’s so much fun," Bill said. "I saw my wife become a mom and I knew she’d be great at it.”

Fans are having a blast watching Jen and Bill as new parents as well. This adoption-themed season is the show's highest-rated ever, averaging 2 million viewers an episode.

Watch more with the new parents on "The Little Couple," Tuesdays at 10 p.m. ET on TLC.
