Congrats go out to Olympic skier Bode Miller and his wife Morgan. The couple recently welcomed twin boys—and the birth story is one you can’t miss!
The couple, who already have four children (and tragically lost daughter Emmy to drowning in 2018) reveled their baby boy joy on Today, via a phone interview, saying, “They finally arrived. They had us waiting and waiting and waiting.”
Bode went on to add, “The birth story was actually one of the more crazy things that I’ve ever experienced, and you guys know that I’ve seen a thing or two in my life.” As it turns out, the babies were quicker to arrive than the couple’s midwives. This left the Miller fam to fend for themselves during the delivery process. The Olympic skier continued, “By the time they [the midwives] got there, me and my mom were both holding the babies.”
When Today co-anchor Craig Melvin asked Bode if he delivered his own children, the new dad responded, “Yeah. Luckily my mom was a midwife, but she hadn’t delivered babies in 20 plus years, and she’d never delivered twins.”
Even though the birth didn’t go exactly as planned, both identical twins were healthy and both parents are certainly happy! Morgan also chimed in on the birth, saying, “I’m doing really well. We’re still floating from the whole experience. It was so amazing.”
As of now the Millers haven’t chosen names for the boys, with Bode noting, “We’ll come up with something. They have such different personalities right now, it’s going to be cool to kind of let them be for a little bit.”
