Clare Bowditch welcomes Elijah and Oscar

02/02/2007 at 07:00 PM ET

Update: It has been posted on Clare’s website, that the boys have been named Elijah and Oscar. The following was posted:

Well, it’s finally happened! Last week, Clare (with the help of Marty) gave birth, very naturally, to two very big twins, Oscar and Elijah. Clare says it didn’t hurt one bit, although she could be lying. She will be writing up the boys’ birth story in detail as an open letter later in the month. Weighing in at 8 and 7 pounds, the boys are at home and in fantastic form, being mainly taken care of by their big sister Asha, who seems to have it all under control. Work on the new album will recommence in a couple of months when Marty finally begins producing enough milk to feed both the twins (at the moment he’s really struggling to keep up). In the meantime, thank you for all your kind words and well wishes.

Update (Jan 23rd): A source exclusively tells us that Clare gave birth on Sunday at 1.30am, to two baby boys! Our fabulous former contributor Kirrily, also Australian, tells us the boys are identical.

Thanks to CBB reader Elizabeth and Christelle for the name info!

Originally posted Jan 22nd: Australian radio station NXFM announced last week that Clare Bowditch and her husband, Marty Brown, welcomed twin boys two weeks ago. This information would seem right as she was due early January, but there has been no confirmation from the family or other sources. Please comment or email us if you have any further information. The couple also have daughter, Asha, 3.
