Non-identical twin sons Rocco and Jay Byrne were born at the National Maternity Hospital in Dublin at 9.55am on Friday weighing 5 pounds 11 ounces and 4 pounds 8 respectively.
The highschool sweethearts are first time parents who were married in August 2003.
The couple released a statement saying:
“Nicky and Georgina Byrne welcomed with great joy the safe arrival of their twin sons Rocco and Jay born at 9.55am this morning in the National Maternity Hospital Holles Street, Dublin 2.”
“The couple would like to thank Professor Mc Auliffe and all the
wonderful staff at NMH Holles Street.”
Georgina’s father Taoiseach Bertie Ahern said this afternoon he is delighted about the news. Mr Ahern said he spoke to Georgina on the phone and hopes to visit her and the twins either tonight or early tomorrow morning.
