Headline News anchor Nancy Grace and her husband David Linch welcomed twins Lucy Elizabeth and John David on Sunday – an early delivery for Nancy, who had developed a pulmonary edema during the pregnancy.
“Her physician determined it would be best for Nancy, and for the twins, to deliver them on Sunday,” a rep for Nancy said. “Lucy Elizabeth, John David, and their proud parents are now resting comfortably.”
John David weighed 5 lbs., 1 oz. at birth, and Lucy Elizabeth weighed 2 lbs., 15 oz. according to the rep. Nancy, 48, had been due to give birth in January.
“The babies are doing fine. Our little girl is doing just as well as her brother despite her weight – and mom is doing great,” David told People magazine.
Pulmonary edema involves swelling and/or fluid accumulation in the lungs. No further details were given about Nancy’s condition, or that of the twins, on Monday.
According to Nancy’s rep, John David is named for his father and John the Revelator. Lucy Elizabeth is named after Nancy’s mother Elizabeth and grandmother Lucy.
