The McKinnons had announced they were expecting twins in November last year.
Former Newcastle Knights star Alex, who became a quadriplegic after a horror tackle seven years ago, posted a photo to Instagram of himself with Teigan and their daughter Harriet holding out balloons spelling out their big surprise: ‘Twins’.
The couple later revealed they’d been left speechless when their GP broke the news to them following a scan.

‘We’re extremely grateful – with a million different emotions,’ Alex said.
‘I’m still trying to get my head around all that stuff like two baby seats, two cots, two high chairs… it’s amazing how the rollercoaster of life works.
‘I’m an only child and so we always wanted a big family. I guess we’ve got our wish, that’s for sure.’
