“[I’ve been] thinking that the soul of that little one was waiting for the next time I got pregnant to come back,” she explained. “For whatever reason, he/she/I wasn’t ready at the time. Now I guess the time was right! … Not to get too sappy, but when I first found out we were having twins, the one thing I said to Arie was that I was so grateful. I felt like I got that baby back, and I got another one too.”

As for Luyendyk Jr., the race car driver wrote via Instagram that “2020 has completely redeemed itself” and he can’t wait to welcome “two little miracles” to their family. “Love them with all my heart already,” the Netherlands native added.
