Shaun T and his husband Scott Blokker have welcomed two new members to the family.
The couple announced the birth of their twin boys on Nov. 17 on Instagram. Shaun T posted a photo of he and Blokker posing with their newborns on their chests.
“OUR BABY BOYS have arrived!!! We are so thrilled that our precious little preemie angels took us by surprise and arrived early at 32 weeks 5 Days on 11/17/17,” the Insanity fitness instructor captioned the photo.”Thanks for your love and support as they continue to grow and get stronger And a HUGE thank you to our amazing surrogate for being so selfless and going on this journey with us. **For more: check Link in IG story LATER TODAY to get the behind the scenes play by play on how the #TWINSANITY BEGAN!”
The twins were born prematurely at 32 weeks but Blokker tells People that the babies are doing well.
“The good news is they’re off the respirator, which is great,” Blokker says. “They sometimes use the feeding tube and sometimes use the bottle to feed, so we’re actually moving in a great direction.”
He added, “We celebrated some movements last night — meaning from kids into the diapers — so that was a big day for us. I just didn’t know how to say that. So there are small victories that are amazing.”
Shaun and Blokker revealed they were having twins via surrogate in October in a poem.
