Shaun T Announces Twins

As we mentioned in a previous post, fitness guru Shaun T & Scott Blokker were expecting twins.

Shaun T, 39, and Scott Blokker welcomed the arrival of twins on Friday, Nov. 17, Shaun T declared on Instagram Monday, with a juxtaposed photo of himself and Blokker holding their infant children.

“OUR BABY BOYS have arrived!!! We are so thrilled that our precious little preemie angels took us by surprise and arrived early at 32 weeks 5 Days on 11/17/17,” the celebrity fitness expert captioned the snap. “Thanks for your love and support as they continue to grow and get stronger ❤️????

The infants are the first kiddos for Blokker and Shaun T, 39, who have wed approximately 5 years ago back in October 2012.

“Our surrogate is so cool, she’s like, ‘This is not about me. I don’t want to sit in a chair, I don’t want to be the center of attention because this is for you guys,’ ” Shaun T revealed to PEOPLE at the time.

Blokker revealed to PEOPLE that his favorite part of the baby shower was not a gift or present but rather,  “It was recently the adoration that everybody has and the help for us.”

“Everybody knew our excursion and how strong they were and energized when they discovered that we were pregnant,” he proceeded. “Once in a while you become involved with life and things are insane, however, there are days like that where everyone comes and gives you adore.”

Some stats on surrogacy:

In the US alone, there is an estimated average of 9 children born every year, in each state, through a surrogate. Unfortunately, there isn’t much data that goes back before 2008 since most surrogacy pregnancies or agreements were not tracked or they are not currently shared with the public. For surrogate mothers who are below the age of 35, the success rate of a pregnancy can reach as high as sixty percent.

As mothers advance in age, the success rates of a surrogacy can decrease accordingly.

“And a HUGE thank you to our amazing surrogate for being so selfless and going on this journey with us,” he added

Here’s to another success story.

Shaun T & Scott Blokker Expecting Twins

Congratulations are in order for Shaun T and Scott Blokker.

The Beachbody celebrity trainer, 39, and his husband are expecting twins via surrogate, they announced on Instagram Saturday.

The couple shared the announcement featuring a poem with flash cards.

“Some things come easy, something take time,” the cards began. “Struggles can be real, but with them you’ll find. Things happen for a reason. Sometimes you never know why. But never give up and remember it’s OK to cry. 5 years of challenges, 5 years of wait. Ups, downs in emotion, painful blows we’d take. But we learned to stay the course, hope and prayer wins. And we’re happy to finally announce…. we’re having twins!”

At the end of the cute clip, the pair appear next to their pregnant surrogate.

The fitness trainer and author of T Is for Transformation is known for his home fitness programs, including T25, Insanity and Hip-Hop Abs.

Congratulations to them!

Shaun White Goes for Third Gold Medal in Snowboarding

02/11/2014 at 03:45 PM EST

(Warning: This post contains spoilers. If you want to watch the broadcast tonight on NBC, don’t read any further.)

Was third time the charm for charismatic U.S. snowboarder Shaun White?

Going for his third gold medal in the Winter Olympics, White, 27, sought to make history Tuesday on the half-pipe at Sochi.

In the end, he fell on a difficult jump and wound up in fourth place.

That put him well behind half-pipe gold medalist Iouri Podladtchikov, 25, of Switzerland, known to fans as the “I-Pod,” who turned up the heat in competition as he landed his own signature 1440-degree spinning jump, dubbed the “Yolo.”

White, a San Diego native who has been a frequent social media face from the games, had attempted the “Yolo” twice himself, but couldn’t land it cleanly. Two Japanese snowboarders, Ayumu Hirano and Taku Hiraoka, earned silver and bronze medals in the event, which marked the first time since 1998, when the event was first launched, that the U.S. finished out of medal range.
