Congratulations are in order — times two! Lady Antebellum star Hillary Scott welcomed twins with husband Chris Tyrell on Monday, Jan. 29, she announced via Instagram. "Our family is thankful and proud to announce the arrival of our precious baby girls. They were born in the early hours of Jan. 29, 2018, and we can’t wait to share more about them in the days to come. Thank you to everyone who prayed and prayed for these little ladies, and thank you Lord for healthy babies. #Twins," she captioned a cute pic of blue and pink baby hats labeled "A" and "B."
Then on Monday, Feb. 5, Hillary returned to Instagram to share the first photo of her baby girls and reveal their sweet names. "Our identical little ladies Betsy Mack and Emory JoAnn were born Jan. 29 around 2 a.m., 5.5 lbs each and 17 inches long. Their Daddy took this picture when they were two days old, napping on Mama," the singer wrote.
"Their favorite place to be, other than on me, is nose to nose and cheek to cheek. Big Sister Eisele’s heart is full of love for her sisters and she is already such an incredible little helper," Hillary continued. "One week in and we are definitely seeing double! Double the blessing, double the tired, double the laundry, but double the love!"
The duo — who married in January 2012 — is already parents to a young daughter, Eisele, 4. Back in September, Hillary announced the exciting news that she'd be getting two little sisters. "We are overjoyed to be having TWO more girls! Eisele is so excited to have her very own living baby dolls. Chris and I are beyond grateful that we get to raise a household of little ladies, and can't wait to watch and help them grow into kind, independent, and confident women!" she wrote on Instagram next to a cute pic of pink tutus. "Now we wait with great expectation (and many prayers) for them to get here safely!"
Hillary and Chris revealed they were having twins back in August. "God has answered our family's countless prayers! Our family is growing... Chris, Eisele, and I wanted to share our DOUBLE portion of joy with you all!" she wrote at the time.
"We appreciate all the love and prayers in the coming weeks as we wait (somewhat patiently if you're Chris and me, and impatiently if you're Eisele 😂) for these precious BABIES to arrive. Yep, babies! We are having TWINS! It's truly a miracle. Because we've been so open about our last pregnancy loss and journey, I want to be fully transparent with you that this happened naturally. Chris nor I have any family history of twins that we can find and are just resting in the profound gift this truly is."
