On Tuesday, it was confirmed that Jeff Dunham and his wife Audrey welcomed their twin boys into the world over the weekend. AH-Mazing!
The popular ventriloquist revealed the infants arrived one day before his third wedding anniversary — the duo named their newborns Jack Steven and James Jeffrey Dunham.
“Mama Audrey and both boys are happy and healthy and doing well. Born two hours apart and no C-section needed. I was literally right there, and after the heads were clear, the doctor let me pull the little guys out the rest of the way. Life doesn’t get any more beautiful and amazing than that.”
It feels like it was just yesterday when the comedian’s lady love took to Instagram to share her very sweet pregnancy announcement.
At the time, she posted:
Hey everyone! @JeffDunham and I have some exciting news to share!! This fall, we will be welcoming not one, but TWO new members to the Dunham family! #TwinBoysA photo posted by Audrey Dunham (@audreyedunham) on May 14, 2015 at 12:19pm PDT
As for the little ones’ names, it appears the new parents were looking for monikers that were “traditional, strong, and solid.”
“We chose names that we thought were traditional, strong and solid. We picked Jack because Audrey has always liked that name for a boy. Also, a friend of mine ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ another ventriloquist ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ calls me ‘Jack Durham’ as a joke. Then Kiefer Sutherland played Jack Bauer on 24, and people said I looked like him, so that became my name on the road. ‘Jack’ just became ingrained in us.
The middle name, Steven, is Audrey’s father’s name and honors him. James Jeffrey is another one Audrey loved, and I thought it went well with Jack Steven. And it’s ├óΓé¼ΓÇ╣James├óΓé¼ΓÇ╣ ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ not Jimmy, not Jim!”
However, we did have a feeling these two were going to name their kids a “J” name since their baby shower cake featured two bears holding hearts with the letter drawn in icing on them. Though, we respect their attempt at keeping the names private until the birth.
Jack and James may be the duo’s first set of kids together, but it’s the Texas native’s fourth and fifth time being a dad since he already has three daughters from a previous marriage. Talk about a full house!
We wonder how he’s going to handle juggling all that responsible as he plans to still go on his Perfectly Unbalanced tour in December?! Oof.
Congrats again to the proud momma and papa! Be sure to let us know where you’re registered, m’kay?!
