She admits that she was extra emotional after finding out that she was pregnant again following a heartbreaking miscarriage – and called it a double blessing when she found out she was having twins.
Lady Antebellum‘s lead singer, Hillary Scott, and her husband Chris Tyrrell welcomed their first child, Eisele nearly five years ago – and they had always wanted to have multiple children.
After suffering a devastating miscarriage in 2015, Scott revealed that this new pregnancy felt different – in multiple ways.
“We were taking it a week at a time. ‘When are we going to announce this news?’ Because I wasn’t sure,” she told People.
The pair announced their pregnancy in August 2017 and welcomed their double bundles of joy on January 29th, 2018…but there were a few bumps along the way.
Scott tells the publication that she felt a great deal better during her pregnancy with the twins than during the one in which she miscarried.
“And because that was a long process, it took me a while to fully recover after the miscarriage just because it was physically and emotionally [difficult],” she continued. “This time around, I slept a lot.”
While she felt better, Scott admits that she had “double the fatigue” and that she experienced immense nausea – usually right before going on stage for a show.
“I didn’t know if I would’ve been able to make a handful of shows because there just were some close calls.”
In the short period since she welcomed her two beautiful identical twin girls, Scott has called the joyous addition a “double blessing from the Lord,” adding that “it was just one of those things. I was like ‘They’re meant to be here.'”
