"Mommy loves you," the new mom captioned an Instagram post dedicated to her newborn twins

They’re keeping her on her toes already.

WNBA star Glory Johnson took to her Instagram account on Thursday to post an adorable photo of her newborn twin daughters‘ tiny feet nestled next to each other in their hospital bed.

A picture of Johnson with the word “Mommy” written across it can be seen hanging in the background, in front of the baby girls.

The 25-year-old Tulsa Shock player captioned the snap, “My Sweet Babies opened their eyes today!!! #AvaSimone#SoleiDiem #JohnsonTwins.”

Johnson later shared a follow-up Instagram post featuring a fitting inspirational quote: “There is no foot too small that it cannot leave an imprint on this world.”

“Mommy Loves You 1 Week 4 Days #JustTheBeginning#KeepFighting #AvaSimone #SoleiDiem,” she captioned the second post.

Johnson gave birth to her two baby girls, Ava Simone and Solei Diem, via c-section on Oct. 12, much earlier than their February due date.

In another Instagram post welcoming her daughters, the WNBA star wrote, “Born a little earlier than expected, I have no worries because these babies are fighters just like I am.”

Johnson’s wife, fellow WNBA star Brittney Griner, filed for an annulment of their May marriage just one day after Johnson announced in June that she was pregnant via in vitro fertilization with a donor’s sperm. The annulment was denied in August, however, and the two remain legally married.
