Parents of twins offer Josh Reddick hilarious and real advice

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Astros fans with twins believe outfielder Josh Reddick, whose wife recently gave birth to twin boys, is in for lots of sleepless nights and exciting times in the years to come.

Jennifer and Eric Carmouche welcomed twin boys, Beck and Cole, a year and a half ago.

The die-hard Astros fans were excited to hear Reddick had twin boys as well.

"I would rather think I would've started with twins because, you don't know any different," Jennifer explained. "That's just your new normal."

Reddick and his wife Jett welcomed Ryder Blaze and Maverick Joshua on Oct. 2.

"When they get older, and you can prepare for the next one, they can help you out a little bit," Eric said.

To help the new parents, the Carmounches shared a top 10 list of things parents with twins need to know.
