The babies arrive early after the CNN anchor deals with a health issue
Headline News anchor Nancy Grace and her husband David Linch welcomed twins Lucy Elizabeth and John David on Sunday – an early delivery for Grace, who had developed a pulmonary edema during the pregnancy.
“Her physician determined it would be best for Nancy, and for the twins, to deliver them [on Sunday],” a rep for Grace said. “Lucy Elizabeth, John David, and their proud parents are now resting comfortably.”
John David weighed 5 lbs., 1 oz. at birth, and Lucy Elizabeth weighed 2 lbs., 15 oz. according to the rep. Grace, 48, had been due to give birth in January, PEOPLE reported this summer.
“The babies are doing fine. Our little girl is doing just as well as her brother despite her weight – and mom is doing great,” Linch tells PEOPLE.
Pulmonary edema involves swelling and/or fluid accumulation in the lungs. No further details were given about Grace’s condition, or that of the twins, on Monday.
Grace and Linch, an investment banker in Atlanta, married in April.
According to Grace’s rep, John David is named for his father and John the Revelator. Lucy Elizabeth is named after Grace’s mother Elizabeth and grandmother Lucy.
Last month Grace was feted at a baby shower in Manhattan hosted by good pal and former Court TV colleague Diane Dimond. Linch and a host of pals, including Kimberly Guilfoyle and Lisa Bloom, attended and brought gifts such as a pair of his and hers cowboy booties for the twins to match mom’s signature pair.
