August 30, 2020 Updated: August 30, 2020

Atlanta Braves All-Star Freddie Freeman and his wife, Chelsea, made a big announcement on social media on Friday: They’re expecting not one but two brand-new additions to the Freeman family coming in 2021.

The couple, who have been married since 2014, already have a 4-year-old son, Charlie, and he’ll be turning 5 in September.

Chelsea broke the news of the twins on her Instagram account by posting a photograph of two tiny matching white onesies emblazoned with the words: β€œPrayed for One” and “Blessed with Two.”

Beside the photograph, Chelsea captioned:

“Coming Early 2021…
A baby for each year we prayed πŸ™πŸ»β€οΈ”

She then added hashtags β€œpregnancy announcement” and β€œpregnancy after infertility.” You can see her adorable photo here.

On the same day, Freddie posted his own public announcement on Twitter. β€œParents of 3 coming soon! Love you @chelseafree5,” the 30-year-old first baseman captioned.
