Mykelti and Tony welcome twins Archer and Ace
Mykelti and Tony already had their hands full with their 1-year-old daughter, Avalon Asa Padron, who was born in April 2021. On November 17, their family grew by two when Mykelti was induced in a hospital at 6:30 a.m. She delivered two healthy babies just hours later. Archer arrived at 10:54 a.m. and Ace arrived two minutes later at 10:56 a.m.
At birth, Archer weighed 6.15 pounds and was 19 inches tall. And Ace weighed in at 6.8 pounds and was also 19 inches tall. Check out a photo of the happy family below (via FTA):
Mykelti gives his followers an update (via People), “I’m so happy my kids are finally here, and we’re all doing well.” And dad, Tony, can’t contain his excitement about his twins. He says, “I’m glad my kids finally came to play!”
Tony Reveals The Meaning Of ‘Gamer’ Behind Archer And Ace’s Names
A fan commented on Mykelti’s photo of his twins on instagramasking about the idea behind the twin kids’ unique names. Tony, an avid gamer, revealed: “Good question; Archer’s name is a derivative of my gamer tag.” A Gamertag is essentially an alias or username to represent gamers when playing with other people online.
As for Ace, Tony revealed, “And Ace, we just liked him.” Both twins also have interesting and unique middle names. Ace’s middle name, McCord, “comes from Mykelti’s favorite strong-woman character on a show.” And Archer’s middle name, Banks, “is meant to inspire wealth and prosperity,” Tony confirms.
Mykelti Gives Fans An Update On Her Twin Babies
In a video update (via Youtube), Mykelti is healthy, happy and taking care of her newborn twins. She says in the video that both children are doing “very well” and “healthy.” Mykelti reveals that the doctor induced her in a hospital, but after the babies were breech, they had to be delivered by emergency C-section. She said, “I am currently in the healing stage.”
Mykelti said she is “sold out” but wants to update her fans. It’s been hard now with both hands full taking care of her twins. She revealed, “The boys are doing amazing.” And as for her older sister, Avalon, she’s starting to “like” her, but she “took a second.”
It seems that “Oma” Christine is helping out where she can, especially since she lives only 20 minutes from Mykelti and Tony in Utah. Christine posted a picture of her holding hers her twin grandchildren. Check out Christine’s instagram post below:
