Mitt Romney welcomes two new grandchildren

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney and his wife, Ann, have two new grandkids; their oldest son,  Tagg, announced Friday on Twitter that he and his wife had twin sons through a surrogate.

“Happy 2 announce birth of twin boys David Mitt and William Ryder. Big thanks to our surrogate. Life is a miracle,” Tagg tweeted Friday afternoon, along with a picture of him cradling one of the newborns.

Tagg, 42, and his wife, Jennifer, 39, already had four children, including one other child who was carried by the same surrogate.

The births bring the number of grandchildren Mitt and Ann Romney have to 18.


Ann tweeted that she couldn’t wait to meet her 17th and 18th grandchildren.
