The new mom shared the first photo of the little ones on Instagram Tuesday, posting a black and white portrait of herself cradling the babies close to her chest.

“Thank you for all the love! We’re so grateful to finally be home with our sweet family. We would like to say a special thank you to all the incredible nurses & doctors at Centennial Women’s & Children’s Hospital in Nashville,” Morgane wrote.

“At more than a month early, we had a week-long stay in the NICU & the incredible people there kept our boys healthy & happy. Words cannot express our gratitude for you all & what you did for our family. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you!” she concluded.
