Given the high rate of success, Kenneth stated that he wanted to use only one, while Armonado wanted at least two embryos for safety. The latter point is something that Kenneth seemed to be quite opposed to as he claimed that his past experience with the process has made him believe that doing so might lead them to have more than one child, which is not what they seem to be planning for.
