Most people would agree that having a baby is a blessing. So, having two babies — twins — would be twice the blessing, right? Maybe so, but Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott very honestly admits that, as much as she is in love with her 2-week-old twin daughters, she’s just plain, old exhausted.
Hillary recently shared a photo on her Instagram page, but not of twins Betsy Mack and Emory JoAnn. This one is of her. And while she isn’t red carpet glam, she is still girl-next-door gorgeous. It’s apparent from the caption that she might not think so, though … if she could actually think.
She writes, “Am I laughing? Am I crying? Am I asleep? Am I awake? Have I eaten? Have I showered? Have I brushed my teeth or shaved my legs? Are those still Christmas pillows? I don’t think I know the answers to any of these questions, but y’all my heart is FULL and this is me, #twoweekspostpartum captured in a photo today. ❤”

It’s a beautiful you, Hills!
Fortunately, it looks like the happy, but admittedly tired mom is getting a helping hand. And although it’s a little hand, it’s obviously attached to a big heart.
In another photo from Hillary, we can see 4 1/2-year-old big sister Eisele gently caressing one of the twins’ heads. And it’s almost as if you can hear her singing a lullaby to the alert little beauty.
Is it Betsy or is it Emory? We aren’t sure about which twin it is, but we’re pretty sure it’s beyond precious.
Hillary, husband Chris Terrell and Eisele welcomed their twin girls into the family on Jan. 29.
From our approximation, next up in labor and delivery could be Chris and Morgane Stapleton who are, coincidentally, welcoming twins as well. We don’t have genders for their two little ones yet, or an exact due date, so we may be off on when they’re due to arrive, but we’re pretty excited about having another set of doubles in the country music family.
We’re also excited to meet Jessie James Decker and Eric Decker’s next baby, a little boy that is scheduled for a March arrival. However, in her last bumpdate (bump update … get it?), Jessie said that even though she is only 33 weeks along, she could go anytime because her babies grow so much after week 36.
Working on week 33! Sleeping is now not possible. Can’t get comfortable at all. He feels so low that I spend all night getting up to pee or to move from side to side. He also hiccups the strongest out of my 3 and all night long. But even though it’s been tough have to stop and realize this is my last baby and how special it’s been. We are SO excited to meet him. Got baby boys clothes all washed now and put away (all Bubbys old baby clothes) and got some new cool sleeper cribs etc. the stuff they keep coming out with blows my mind! Got my pumps out and bottles too! In a few weeks will get my hospital bag ready. Because I grow such big babies after I hit 36 weeks i know it can be any day since I’ve gone 2 weeks early with both! (Excuse the mess in background, moving into my office this week and not in dining anymore) #33weeks
