Comedian Mo’Nique and fiance Sidney Hicks welcomed twin boys a little ahead of schedule at 10:30 pm on Monday night. She wasn’t due until November, but both boys are fine and will remain hospitalized for a few weeks while they gain strength. Jonathan weighed in at 3 lbs 12 oz, while brother David was 4 lbs.

Mo’Nique has a son, with ex-husband Mark Jackson.

She is currently working on her reality show on the Oxygen network Mo’niques Fat Chance in which 10 women compete to be the first American plus size beauty queen.

Cheers to (possibly) normal names! Hope her babies are okay.

Congrats to Mo’nique and her fiancé. I’ll be extremely happy if they do give their sons some normal names, which seems like what they were going to do from jump.

Good for them. 😉

I’m so glad her babies are doing fine. My heart goes out to Mo’Nique and fiance, though… it’s really difficult going home from the hospital without your baby, doubly so with twins I would imagine. Anyway, I wish them all the best :o)

congrats to her.

My twin nephews were born at 26 weeks only weighing a pound and a half a piece but today are 6 months old and both around 10lbs! They remained in the hospital for 2 months. It was hard on their mom but she said it was nice knowing they were being well taken care of while she was home resting and preparing for them to come home.
