Bode Miller and wife Morgan are adding two little members to their family.
During Monday's (August 12) episode of Today, the couple announced they are expecting identical twin boys. As Morgan admits, she was surprised to find out she and her husband were due for two babies.
“From the beginning of our relationship, [Bode] always said, ‘I want identical twin boys, born on my birthday,’ ” she said on the show, according to PEOPLE. “And this time, when we found out I was pregnant, I said, ‘Do you think it’s twins this time?’ And he said ‘No.’"
Morgan learned the shocking news when she went to an ultrasound appointment alone. She later announced on Instagram that her twin boys were due on November 11 — just a month and a day shy of Bode's own birthday.
As you know, the pregnancy comes over a year after the couple lost their 19-month-old daughter Emeline in a tragic drowning accident in June 2018. Morgan, who was pregnant with son Easton at the time, touched on Emmy's death in her emotional Instagram post, describing her guilt as "the most confusing experience of my life."
"How could I love this baby the way I loved Emmy? Was it okay to love this baby the way I loved Emmy? It felt like by loving my son, I was trying to replace her," she added. "I couldn’t have been more wrong. Easton provided us an even closer bond to his sister. The moment I heard his cry, something sparked back alive in my soul."
"From the day I met my husband, he has always said he wanted identical twin boys born on his birthday," she continued, adding that despite the later-than-expected delivery date, "We knew Emmy had her hands in this miracle somehow."
