Shortly after their daughter Ruby Kate and their son, William Jeffrey, arrived, Abby did a quick interview about her newborn babies. “Ruby came first at 5 lbs., 12 oz. She is a sweet, very calm baby,” Abby gushed to People. “William is 5 lbs., 4 oz., and came into the world wide-eyed and ready to raise havoc.”
Abby and Jeffrey are already proud parents to their 1-year-old daughter, Isabel. Now that they have two new babies at home, they’re excited to start their life as a family-of-five.
“When the doctor told us [it was twins], my husband fainted, which was just classic,” she joked to after finding out she was expecting twins. “I think he saw two sacs in there and I could see it on his face. He turned white, and then when the doctor told us, he fell. Another doctor had to come in, and they were wiping him down with towels and giving him sugar.”
Jeffrey wasn’t the only one who was in complete shock. Once the doctor told Abby she’d be welcoming twins, she didn’t know how to handle the news.
“My honest reaction was that I started bawling. I was so scared … that’s my real, honest answer,” she shared to New York Baby Show magazine. “It was hard the first three months because I was so nauseous and so sick, but I couldn’t tell anybody yet, and I still had to go out on TV every day … My goal was to get through a show without puking and if I could do that, then that was a success.”
Even though Abby’s pregnancy was hard, she was still excited to be a mom-of-three. “I feel like the luckiest woman in the word,” the talk show host gushed. “I get to be a mom and do what I love.”
