Ben and Jessica (née Brownstein) Mulroney welcomed a new addition to the family. According to a media release by CTV, twin boys Brian Gerald Alexander and John Benedict Dimitri were born on Thursday morning.


“Both boys are healthy and beautiful,” said the eTalk host. “Jessica is radiant and in good health and spirits. I am the happiest man alive.”


The couple have known each other since childhood, through it was Ben’s brother who was friends with Jessica. They met in the suburbs of Montreal, Jessica’s hometown, where the Mulroneys visited every summer.


Both went on to lead successful careers. Ben became one of the most recognizable TV personalities in Canada and Jessica pursued a career as a fashion designer and stylist. Though they’ve known each other for more than a decade, it took 12 years before their friendship developed into romance.


After more than a year into their relationship, Ben and Jessica got married in October 2008. They tied the knot in an interfaith ceremony at St. Patrick’s Basilica in Montreal. The ceremony was officiated by a priest, but also blessed by the Brownsteins' rabbi from Temple Emanu-El Beth Shalom, Rabbi Leigh Lerner. The wedding reception boasted 350 guests, including the father of the groom, former prime minister Brian Mulroney. Photos of the high-profile nuptials also landed on the cover of Hello! Canada.


The birth of their twin boys is the first addition to the Mulroney couple’s family.
