Just over a year ago, Olympic skier Bode Miller and his wife, Morgan, endured the unimaginable when their 19-month-old daughter Emmy passed away after drowning in a neighbor’s swimming pool.

Four months after Emmy’s passing, the couple welcomed a baby boy, Easton— and now, they’re adding two more to the mix.

Both Bode and Morgan took to their respective Instagram accounts to share the exciting news.

“Twins! Identical twins!,” Bode shared alongside a photo of his kids under gold foil balloons reading ‘TWINS.’ “Couldn’t be more excited to grow this beautiful family my wife and I have created. Dream come true.”

While Bode kept his announcement brief, Morgan shared a more in-depth look into what it feels like to celebrate and experience joy while in mourning.

“Losing a child while pregnant was the most confusing experience of my life. The conflict of emotions from what was pure joy turned to guilt and terror overnight. 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. The fear of birthing my son and what that meant …..a monumental step forward….proof that time continued without her when all I wanted was for time to stop. But let me say this….I couldn’t have been more wrong,” she shared.

“Easton provided us an even closer bond to his sister. The moment I heard his cry, something sparked back alive in my soul. Hope. Love. I’m not sure. But in that moment, I knew I was Mom and my kids deserved the world from me. Everything was going to be okay. My joy and grief could coexist.”

Morgan went on to share the exciting news of their twin boys on the way, saying it’s always been a dream of Bode’s.

“Now, I can actually say with joy and excitement that we are expecting identical twin boys. From the day I met my husband, he has always said he wanted identical twin boys born on his birthday. We are due on the lucky day/angel number of 11/11 which is not far off from [Bode’s] Birthday of 10/12. From the beginning of this pregnancy, we knew Emmy had her hands in this miracle somehow.”
