In the comment section, the twins' brother JD Scott chimed in with, "The actual cool uncle doesn't need a shirt. 😎."

Drew and Phan, 36, have been married for nearly four years and have been together for almost a dozen. The couple was given the good news in August after two years of fertility treatments.

Also on Tuesday, Drew and Phan shared a joint Instagram post of the pair posing in front of a mirror and showing off Phan's baby bump. In the caption, the couple said they hope that being open about their parenthood story will be helpful for others.

"It has been an adventure to get here! We know we're not alone in this experience and that everyone's is filled with unique challenges along the way," the pair wrote. "We hope as we grow through this, that even one of you reading this can also feel a little less lonely in whatever path you're on!"

The couple also posted a vlog documenting the IVF process, which featured Drew giving Phan shots in her stomach and an ultrasound where the baby's heartbeat could be heard. In the clip, the duo discussed their journey to conception after IUI (intrauterine insemination) failed but IVF (in vitro fertilization) was successful.

Ultimately, Drew and Phan reiterated their hope that their story will serve as inspiration for others facing similar struggles.

"I think that this creates a bit more of a community of people who have either been through the process or are about to go through the process or have been having certain difficulties to realize, you're not alone," Scott said in the clip. "There are a lot of us that have had complications and I think that something like this is something that we should talk about, because then it doesn't make it as scary a thing. It makes it something that is more relatable."
