On the same day British royalty announced the name of their newborn, some of Minnesota’s own royalty announced some exciting birth news. Minnesota native and Twins All-Star catcher Joe Mauer and his wife Maddie announced the birth of twin baby girls earlier today (Wednesday).

Joe was scratched from the lineup last night for the Twins game against the Angels after his wife went into labor. Joe rushed back to Minnesota, where he joined his wife at the hospital. After a few hours of labor, Maddie and Joe welcomed twin baby girls into the world on Wednesday morning.

Minnesota Twins communications director Dustin Morse tweeted a congratulatory message, including the names of the babies (Emily & Maren).

Maddie was originally due August 31, but after doctors put her on bed rest, it was apparent the new Mauer twins could be born at any time.

Joe has been scratched again from tonight’s lineup against the Angels as he enjoys time with his new family before returning from paternity leave. Drew Butera will replace Mauer on the road trip until he makes his return.
