Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan and his wife Sarah were able to bring their newborn twins home from the hospital over the weekend. The couple announced the news via social media on Sunday.

Sarah was placed on bed rest Jan. 9 due to complications with her pregnancy, she said via Instagram. The eldest son was able to leave the hospital after five weeks in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) an dhis younger brother follow a wek later. 

I have been MIA on here for awhile so I wanted to give a little update on what’s been going on the past few months. On January 9th I was placed on hospital bed rest due to complications with my pregnancy. After 6 weeks under the watch of the amazing doctors and nurses at Northside Hospital, our twin boys decided they were ready to make their arrival into the world. They were small but tough and fought their way through their time in the NICU to get strong enough to come home. Our first born, Marshall Thomas Ryan, was sent home after 5 weeks in the NICU. His brother John (Johnny) Matthew Ryan followed a week later. To say that having Marshall and Johnny at home is a dream come true for Matt and I would be putting it mildly. We are endlessly thankful for their doctors and nurses in the NICU who gave them the most incredible care and will forever hold a special place in our hearts. We are so grateful for our family and friends who we couldn’t have gotten through this journey without. And we thank everyone/all of you who checked in on us over these past few months. We so appreciate it. Now after a lack in posting I will be flooding your timelines with baby photos-- Exactly what I said I would never do--‍♀️

Matt took to Instagram with another photo of the two Ryan boys, Marshall and Johnny. It appears Johnny may already be working to stretch out for catches as a receiver.

Welcome our boys Marshall and Johnny. #Family #DadLife
