Miami Heat star Chris Bosh and his wife Adrienne, already the parents of three children, have hoped for a family of five children and now will be getting their wish.
“Chris and I are so excited about having twins,” Adrienne, 30, exclusively tells PEOPLE of the news they first learned over the summer while spending the off-season in their Malibu, California, house.
Chris and Adrienne are already parents to Trinity, 6 — Chris’ daughter with Allison Mathis — Jackson, 3, and Dylan Skye, 2. Adrienne says the couple have previously talked about the possibility of having two more little ones because they love children and want a big family.
“The whole thing is amazing,” says Adrienne. “The Bosh side of the family has two sets of twins, so they are overjoyed at the news of having another generation of them.”

The news of the pregnancy comes at one of the busiest times in Adrienne’s life.
She is set to open a retail store on Lincoln Rd. in Miami Beach next month called Sparkle & Shine Darling.
The glittery, glam showroom-styled emporium will be a special place where women can come and shop for carefully curated items ideal for themselves, their moms, sisters, babies and friends.
They can also host baby showers, wedding celebrations, charity events and other personal or business parties in any of the three event spaces attached to the 3500-square-foot store.
“I got the idea for the store after Chris surprised me with a celebration in Paris for my 29th birthday,” says Adrienne. “He created a tea party-like atmosphere for me there with all kinds of gifts that were bought at 25 stores and flea markets. I loved it, and when I got back, I wanted to do something like this all in one location.”

But Adrienne had to put her store on hold when Chris got sick last February and had to miss the remainder of the NBA season due to a blood clot found on his lung.
“I took a delay when Chris was in the hospital,” says Adrienne.
“I was by his side until he gained back his strength and recovered. In fact, it was Chris who reminded me to go back to work and get the store open. He is so supportive.”
Meanwhile, Adrienne knows she’ll need 10 versions of herself to manage the store, her new twins, the day-to-day needs of their other children, and her husband’s busy basketball season, which begins in a couple of weeks.
“I focus, but I know it really does take a village,” she says of her crazy days.
“Chris and I have our dads living close to us for help. We organize to make our lives work. And we are so ready to welcome our twins to the family!”
