Get ready to say 'aww'...
Lady Antebellum's Hillary Scott gave birth to twin daughters Betsy Mack and Emory JoAnn last week.
Back in August 2017, Hillary and Chris Tyrell shared the adorable moment they told four year-old Eisele Kaye they were expecting not one, but two more additions to their family:
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! We appreciate all the love and prayers in the coming weeks as we wait (somewhat patiently if you're Chris and I, 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. My heart still grieves for our loss and all who are struggling with pregnancy and infant loss and infertility. God hears every prayer and I will continue to share our story to point to the Source of all life, peace and comfort in the best and most difficult of times. Don't lose hope! Thank you @hodgesusry for capturing this priceless moment and make sure you swipe to see all the sweet moments @montgomeryleephoto captured on the day we told Eisele. Love and blessings to all! The Tyrrell's
And on Monday (February 5), the singer's husband Chris Tyrrell shared the news that his wife had given birth to two healthy twins on January 29, saying:
"Our identical little ladies Betsy Mack and Emory JoAnn were born January 29th around 2am, 5.5lbs each and 17 inches long. Their Daddy took this picture when they were two days old napping on Mama.
"Their favourite 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. One week in and we are definitely seeing double!"
The couple's journey in extending their family has been an emotional one. Hillary sadly suffered a miscarriage back in 2015, which inspired their song 'Thy Will' from the album Love Remains.
Congratulations to the family of five!
