The proud new mom wrote on Facebook that her twins were born at 28 weeks and 1 day, and weighed just under 1 kilogram (2.2 pounds) each.
“They were eager to get here quite before their due date and they did exactly that,” she wrote.
4. Since their birth, Jackson-Ruthford has been chronicling the twin’s development on Facebook by sharing cute photos and videos of their progress.
Jackson-Rutherford wrote she’s gone public with the twins’ journey because she wants to help other moms of “preemies.”
“I googled like crazy looking for hope when we told we might be [premature],” she wrote on Facebook. “I would love to see this kind of positivity as a mum that faces the possibility of a premature baby. To all parents that face this, be comforted in knowing that today anything is possible and your babies will be just fine.”
6. Last week, Jackson-Ruthford shared a video of her twins doing something pretty adorable: holding hands as they lay with their dad.
“Both my angels holding hands again as if they were born to,” she wrote.
She wrote that she is amazed about how many views her video has received, and is very happy that she can provide a message of hope to other moms of preemie babies.
“They’re famous and so is their daddy,” she said of the twins.
