Bode and Morgan Miller have welcomed twin boys into the world, a year after losing their daughter to drowning. The babies were born November 8, three days before they were due. Bode, and his wife Morgan announced the news Tuesday on the Today Show.

“None of the midwives actually made it on time,” Bode told the Today Show. “By the time they got there, me and my mom were both holding the babies. One minute we’re just hanging out and the next they were out.”

The couple’s 1-year-old daughter, Emmy, died by drowning in a pool and since then, the Millers have been dedicated to spreading child drowning prevention and awareness.

The twins join the couple’s sons Easton, 1, and Nash, 4, as well as Miller’s two older children from prior relationships, Nate, 6 and daughter Dace, 11.
