THE VOICE’s Jon Mullins ‘So So Grateful’ After Twins’ Premature Birth

By Movieguide® Contributor

THE VOICE alum Jon Mullins is opening up about the premature birth of his twins. 

“I felt like it was just a roller coaster that we weren’t prepared for,” he told PEOPLE. “They should not be in the world right now. So, for them to snuggle up against your skin and sleep, it just makes me want to cry.”

Mullins’ wife Whitney’s pregnancy was proceeding without issue until earlier this year, when doctors noticed decreased fetal movement. In January, she “was showing symptoms of preeclampsia.”

After consulting with doctors, the couple decided the best course of action would be to have the twins immediately via C-section. 

“We were terrified,” Mullins said of the premature birth. The twins, Theodore and Olivia, were initially due on March 10. 

“Theodore came out 3 lbs., 15 oz., and Olivia came out 4 lbs., 9 oz,” the singer said. “When Theodore came out, he had very low respiratory drive, and Olivia had zero respiratory drive. She was moving, but she wasn’t breathing one bit.”

The twins are still in the NICU but are doing well and will hopefully be ready to go home in March. 

The couple have been keeping fans updated on the twins through social media. 

“So so so grateful,” a joint Instagram post from the couple reads. “At 32 weeks and 2 days, we could never have imagined how insanely strong these babies are and how much fight they have in them. There’s a crazy story behind these past few days that we will tell you later, but for now, we want to introduce you to: Olivia (Livvy) Laine Mullins and Theodore (Theo/Teddy) August Mullins. Welcome to our world.”

Mullins has previously spoken about fatherhood and its impact on him. 

“You never quite realize how insane and special and crazy having a child is until it happens to you,” he said after the birth of daughter Charlotte, 2. “But I wouldn’t miss it for the world.”

The singer continued, “I don’t know how to explain it, but to go from something that’s just a thought in our minds and a hope in our souls and a prayer that’s come out of our mouths to a human being that we now get to call our daughter is the biggest miracle. I don’t think anybody ever really grasps how much of a miracle it is until it happens to you.”

Movieguide® previously reported on Charlotte’s birth:

THE VOICE alum Jon Mullins has welcomed his first child! His wife Whitney gave birth to a daughter named Charlotte Rose on September 21. 

He and Whitney were initially worried about her pregnancy. Due to the ongoing effects of a 2016 traumatic brain injury, Whitney was deemed a “high risk” pregnancy.

“It was a scheduled c-section,” Mullins said of Charlotte’s birth. “It was probably the most terrifying day of both of our lives because you’re walking into a room and your wife is on an operating table and there’s nothing you can do.”

“All the things that could have gone wrong or that usually would have gone wrong for some reason went right,” the singer shared. “We’re Christians. We love Jesus. And when it comes down to it, even though everyone says to ‘trust God,’ we were still scared.”
