Joan Lunden and her husband, businessman Jeff Konigsberg, welcomed their second set of twins, another girl and a boy, on March 1. The twins, Kimberly Elise and Jack Andrew weighed 6 lbs. 12 oz. and 7 lbs. 9 oz., respectively.
The surrogate who carried them is the same woman who gave birth to Joan’s first set of twins, Kate and Max, almost two years ago.
"I feel like I’m living on Noah’s Ark – they’re coming two by two," said Joan. When they decided to have more kids with the surrogate, they weren’t planning on another set of twins. "We weren’t actually trying for twins again," she said, "but of course that’s always in the cards when you implant more than one embryo."
As for the manner is which her household grew: "You usually only hear about surrogacy when there’s a horror story (over custody). Word needs to get out that it is a viable option if done safely and correctly with a good agency so everyone is protected."
Joan has three grown daughters from a previous marriage- Jamie 24, Lindsay 21, and Sarah 17.
