Former NRL star Alex McKinnon and wife Teigan are celebrating the birth of twin daughters as their family grew by two this week.

Baby girls Audrey and Violet came into the world six minutes apart on Monday afternoon in Newcastle and on Tuesday, Alex and Teigan took to social media to spread the good news.

Teigan posted a photo on Instagram holding her new bubs with the caption: “Two little precious girls have entered the world and have stolen our hearts 26/04/21. 3:13pm and 3:19pm.

“Audrey Jill McKinnon 2.5kgs & length 48cm.

“Violet John McKinnon 2.4kgs & length 47.5cm.”

It means the couple now have three daughters, as two-and-a-half year-old Harriett got to say hello to her new sisters.

McKinnon, 29, played 49 NRL games before his career was tragically cut short in 2014. Playing for Newcastle, a tackle gone wrong against the Melbourne Storm left the talented back-rower a quadriplegic and he has been confined to a wheelchair ever since.

Teigan has been by his side since before and after the accident, and the pair got married in 2017.

Speaking to The Daily Telegraph, McKinnon was over the moon with the twins’ arrival.

“Teigan was her typical brilliant self — brave, strong and just amazing,” he said.

“It’s just so special and again I’m so thankful that Teigan and the girls are all doing so well.’’
