From "wooooo!" to "waaaaa!": Before he and his ball club prepare to "take it back," Josh Reddick and his wife welcomed their twins to the world.

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- From "wooooo" to "waaaaa," Houston Astros star Josh Reddick and wife Jett are parents to twin boys born Wednesday.

The couple welcomed Maverick Joshua and Ryder Blaze to the world.

In an Instagram gallery posted Thursday, the outfielder said Ryder, who weighed in at 5 pounds, 10 ounces, "was having some trouble breathing" and spent the night in the neo-natal ICU. Ryder would still need to be monitored for at least another 24 hours, Josh added.

Maverick outweighed his brother at 6 pounds.

"We can't wait to be officially together as our family of 4!" Josh concluded his post.

Back in April, the couple announced the arrival of the kids in an Easter-themed posting.
