Former Olympic skier Bode Miller and his wife, Morgan, have announced that they are expecting twin boys. During a conversation with Savannah Guthrie of “Today,” the happy couple talked about how they have always wanted twins in the family.
“This time when I found out I was pregnant I said, ‘Do you think it’s twins this time?'” Morgan told Guthrie. “He said, ‘No.’ So I went to the ultrasound by myself, and sure enough, identical twin boys.”
The Millers also shared the news on Instagram with some stunning photos of their family.
“From the day I met my husband, he has always said he wanted identical twin boys born on his birthday,” she wrote on Instagram. “We are due on the lucky day/angel number of 11/11 which is not far off from @millerbode Birthday of 10/12. From the beginning of this pregnancy, we knew Emmy had her hands in this miracle somehow.”
Emeline (Emmy) Miller was the Millers’ 19-month-old daughter who accidentally drowned on June 20, 2018, while the family visited with neighbors.
“And, all of the sudden, it was just too quiet for me,” Morgan described during a previous interview on “Today.” “We were mid-conversation, and I just stood up, and I turned, and I walked right to where the boys were, and I said, ‘Where’s Emmy?’ … I turned around the door that leads to the backyard — that was closed — had this tiny sliver of light coming through the side.”
Sadly, little Emmy passed away at the hospital despite her mother’s and doctor’s attempts to save her.
The Millers were expecting another baby at the time of Emmy’s death. Easton Vaughn Rek Miller is now 10 months old and is getting ready to become a big brother!
The rest of the couple’s family includes son Nash, age 4, as well Bode’s 11-year-old daughter Nessyn and 6-year-old son Sam from previous relationships.
