Married at First Sight star Nick Pendergrast and girlfriend Heather Yerrid are new parents!

The couple welcomed twins -- daughter Layla Rea and son Logan Joseph -- on Dec. 10, two months before Yerrid's February due date, ET can confirm. The newborn siblings had to stay in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit for 47 days before they were able to be brought home.

Pendergrast released a statement to ET about what he's looking forward to sharing with his adorable babies, who were welcomed at Baptist Health Louisville in Louisville, Kentucky. 

"Now that they are home I am most excited for them to start crawling and developing into little humans. I’ve already started catching up on Disney movies and cartoons and can’t wait to watch them with Layla and Logan," the excited new dad stated. "Oh, and of course, I can’t wait to take them golfing!"

Yerrid also reflected on her new role as a mom in a statement to ET, sharing, "When you become a mother you lose yourself. Your life is no longer your own, it belongs to your children. It’s not about you, it’s about them and that has been refreshing for me."

"When you know who you are and what you stand for, being a mother comes naturally," she added. "I think this is something all women should think about before having children."

Now that she's home with her cute kids and spending every minute with them, Yerrid said she's "most excited to see how their looks will change!"

"I was so excited to see who they looked like when they were born. Now that they are a little older, we can all see that Logan looks like Nick and Layla looks like me!" she explained. "If they end up with his good looks and my personality then I’d say we made perfection."

Yerrid also opened up about her hopes for her children's future, sharing, "My dream for Layla and Logan is to go through life having total acceptance of who they are. I want them to be comfortable in their own skin and approach life with confidence knowing that at the end of the day, their parents want them to win."

The happy couple -- who first shared their baby news with People -- took to Instagram to post some adorable snapshots of their new bundles of joy.

"It was hard keeping this in the dark for so long. The birth of our twins was something we chose not to share with everyone until they came home from the NICU happy and healthy," Pendergrast wrote on Instagram. "I appreciate my friends and family for supporting me through this experience. Our beautiful twins, Layla Rae and Logan Joseph arrived on December 10th and we couldn’t be more tired and happy!"

Pendergrast, 33, was the star of the fourth season of Lifetime's hit reality series Married at First Sight, where he tied the knot with Sonia Granados. However, their relationship didn't work out and the pair split in March 2017.

Soon afterward, Pendergrast found love with Yerrid, and the couple announced they were expecting twins in July. Congrats to the happy couple!
