Why Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott Said A ‘Literal Prayer’ About Her Twin Babies

Lady Antebellum‘s Hillary Scott made her very first appearance at the ACM Awards on Sunday (April 15) since welcoming identical twin daughters 10 weeks ago.

Her baby girls, who she and her husband named Betsy Mack and Emory JoAnn, joined 4½-year-old big sister Eisele Kaye. Check out the sweet video below where they told Eisele that they were going to welcome not one, but two babies into their family.


Scott and her husband Chris Tyrell, who was Lady Antebellum’s drummer until just recently, called their twin babies a “miracle,” seeing as they had struggled with a heartbreaking miscarriage and infertility. Neither of their families have history of twins, so they truly do feel that it was a miracle.

Because Betsy and Emory are identical twins, Scott was extremely worried that she wouldn’t be able to tell them apart once they were born.

“I wasn’t sure how identical they were gonna be because they are genetically identical, but they have different features,” Scott told PEOPLE. “It was a literal prayer — ‘Lord, please let me know how to tell them apart.’”

The Tyrells recently had their first photoshoot as a family of five, which was the first time we got a close up look at the twins and boy, do Betsy and Emory look alike!


Luckily, Tyrell thought quick on his feet and has been painting Emory’s nails since she was born so they can easily tell them apart, especially “in the middle of the night.” Genius!
