Couple Welcomes Twins Into World After Losing Two Sons In A Car Crash

A North Carolina couple who lost their two young sons in a car crash two years ago, have welcomed twin boys into the world.

Gentry and Hadley Eddings' twins, Isaiah Dobbs and Amos Reed, were born happy and healthy on Monday. 

The boys' middle names are in honor of the big brothers who died after a car crash in May, 2015.  

Their two-year-old son, Dobbs, died in the tragic accident on the couple’s 6th anniversary, and Hadley was eight months pregnant at the time of the crash. 

Doctors delivered the baby by emergency c-section, but the child, named Reed, died two days later.  

The truck driver who rear-ended the family because he was driving while distracted, was sentenced  one to three years in prison for involuntary manslaughter.

After the accident, the couple said they had not thought about having more children, that was before they found out they were pregnant with twins.
