It’s time for Robbie E to double down!

The pro wrestler and his wife Tara welcomed twin boys on Thursday, Nov. 3, in Long Branch, New Jersey, they confirm to PEOPLE exclusively.

Carter Stone Strauss was born at 1:31 p.m. weighing in at 5 lbs., 15 oz. and measuring 18 inches long, while his brother Cash Steven Strauss came along one minutes later, at 1:32 p.m., weighing in at 5 lbs., 9 oz. and also measuring 18 inches long.

“Mom is feeling tired but in great spirits,” Robbie, 33, tells PEOPLE of his new sons. “Carter came out screaming and sucking on his thumb! Cash was perfectly calm and totally chill … both are resting up for their rockstar life!”

The couple made their baby news public in July, posting a photo to Instagram depicting both Robbie and Tara miming throwing up into a toilet and holding up signs announcing their news.

“OMG!!!!! We’re having TWINS!!!! #theyaregonnabesofamous #twinbabies #fitpregnancy” Robbie captioned the hilarious shot.

The couple originally thought they were having a boy and a girl, even hosting a gender-reveal event to break the news. But a week later, Robbie took to Instagram to clear up the confusion.

“So … Remember last week when we said we were having a boy and a girl??” he wrote next to a photo of the pair covered in blue powder. “Well … The doctor was 85 percent sure of it … Then today he told us he was 100 percent sure we are having TWO BOYS!!!”

The twosome have been open on social media since, sharing gorgeous maternity shots throughout Tara’s pregnancy. They enjoyed a blue-themed baby shower in August, and a beach babymoon in July.

“#babymoon #prancerlovesthebeach #twinsarekicking #twentyoneweekspregnant,” Robbie wrote next to a photo of the twosome and their chihuahua Prancer — who has her own Instagram account — posing on the sand, the ocean waves and a blue sky serving as their serene backdrop.

Impact Wrestling airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. on Pop TV.
