Kevin Zegers has two new little buddies: His baby girls!

The Gracepoint star is a first-time father after welcoming twins with wife Jaime Feld on Monday, Aug. 17, his rep confirms to PEOPLE.

“They’re here! I’ve never been more in love than I am with the gift my beautiful wife just gave me … Zoë Madison and Blake Everleigh Zegers,” the proud new dad announced Thursday on Twitter.

Blake arrived first at 9:35 p.m. weighing in at 4 lbs., 5 oz., followed by Zoë at 9:37 p.m., weighing in at 5 lbs., 2 oz.

“Kevin and Jaime have not let the twins out of their sight since they were born. They are so thrilled to have two happy and healthy baby girls!” a source tells PEOPLE.

In April, Zegers, 30, confirmed he was doubling his family with Feld, a talent agent, with the upcoming addition of twin girls.

“Kevin and Jaime are so excited and can’t wait for their little bundles of joy to arrive,” his rep told PEOPLE.

With weeks to go until the arrival of their daughters, Zegers told PEOPLE that all the bags were packed and the nursery was complete. According to the dad-to-be, all that was missing were the new additions.

“I’m getting the car seats put in,” the actor told PEOPLE in July. “I took a few months off of work so I can focus on baby stuff. The nursery’s all done — I’ve been doing that for the past month or two.”

One thing that wasn’t completely set in stone: baby names. “We have a few, but we want to wait, meet them and see what they look like,” he explained.

And although it’s double the diaper duty, Zegers — who will take a break from work to spend time as a family of four — admits the proud new parents have been waiting for this moment for a long time.

“We were trying to have kids — we didn’t just happen to get pregnant,” he said. “Twins is obviously a lot, but we’re just super grateful that we were able to get pregnant.”
