Terricka Cromartie Gives Birth To Twins And Addresses Critics

Congratulations to the Cromarties! The couple just welcomed newborn twins this morning according to US Weekly reports:

NFL player Antonio Cromartie and wife Terricka Cromartie welcomed their twin babies into the world in the very early hours of Monday, May 9, the happy couple confirm exclusively to Us Weekly.

The news has been updated since this morning with names and stats on the kiddos, also via US Weekly:

The babies are here! NFL playerAntonio Cromartie and wife Terricka Cromartie welcomed their twin babies into the world on Sunday, May 8, the happy couple confirm exclusively to Us Weekly.

Jynx Revell-Antonio Cromartie was born about five minutes before his twin sister, J’adore Nayvi Cromartie, a rep for the stars tells Us. Jynx weighed in at 5 pounds, 12 ounces, and measured 19 inches, while J’adore was 5 pounds, 8 ounces, and 19 inches at birth. The proud parents are “doing great and extremely excited.”

“It was the most amazing, yet rewarding gift to give birth on Mother’s Day. This is a storybook fairy-tale for Antonio and I,” Terricka tells Us exclusively. Adds Antonio, who delivered his son (in custom Stork Delivery Company scrubs, natch): “It was an adrenaline rush — the most amazing feeling to actually bring my son into this world and to hand him over to my beautiful wife.”

The couple, who married in November 2008, already have two children, daughter Jurzie, 5, and son Jagger, 3. They revealed in February that they were expecting a son and a daughter this time around. Antonio also has eight other children from previous relationships.

But despite their latest additions being a huge surprise, both Antonio, 27, and his wife consider their babies a huge blessing, and have some straight talking words for anybody who wants to criticize.

“It took me a while to process it,” Terricka, 28, admitted of her most recent pregnancy, “but Antonio stood firm and was saying, ‘It’s God’s will.’ And he’s been excited the whole time.”

“To be honest, I’ve gone back and forth about if I wanted to share the news or not,” she explained to Us. “All my children are blessings and all of Antonio’s children are blessings, for that matter. It was made to seem that my children weren’t a blessing because they were categorized by a number, and for that reason and that reason alone, I hid both of my [first two] pregnancies with my husband, just so I could enjoy them with those who were really happy for me.”

But while the happy mom-of-four is delighted with her newest arrivals, she’s taking steps to make sure these babies are her last – she’s getting her tubes tied!

Props to Terricka for doing that hard work of carrying twins and going through labor while also putting up with so much criticism.

Can’t say we blame her for getting her tubes tied, would you do the same thing?

Hit the flip to read what she had to say to her and Antonio’s critics!

Antonio Cromartie and his wife, Terricka, kept busy as they prepared for the arrival of their twins on Sunday, May 8. In an exclusive video obtained by Us Weekly, the New York Jets player, 32, and his then very pregnant wife boogie down to Kidd T’s “Baby Mama Anthem” in their hospital room.

As she was clad in her hospital gown and he in his custom scrubs, the husband and wife duo bump, grind and twerk to the catchy beat.
