Aww, I love seeing the big brother with his little brother in that first pic 🙂

I’d like to know if she speaks French to them. Garcelle is my fellow countrywoman and I also have a baby boy. She must be having the time of her life being la Reine de la maison 🙂

Those twin boys are so cute

Those boys are just the cutest. Does anyone know how they pronouce Jaid’s name? Is it like “said” so it would be Jed? Or is it like Jade? Jaid makes me think it is actually more like Jed, if they wanted it to be Jade wouldn’t they have made it Jaide? Just curious. Beautiful boys!

My god, what a GORGEOUS family! All 3 boys look wonderful. It’s so sweet how Oliver handles the twins. He looks like a wonderful older brother…and Garcelle is stunning. She looks like the type of woman who wakes up with no make-up and it involves no effort to look so beautiful! I hope they had a great Christmas!

I have no idea who she is but her family is beautiful! Gourgeous tree too.

They are lovely !


The first picture is adorable I love how happy everyone looks. Jaid & Jax are such cuties and I love their names. Oliver seems like such a good big brother.

Yay, a picture of Oliver. I’ve been waiting to see what he looks like.

Those are some very sweet pictures and but the first one is my favorite. I love how Oliver holds his baby brother and how he is with them. It’s great.

Adorable photos…and I love the twins’ names!

I read somewhere that Jaid’s name is pronounced like the jewelry Jade. Such gorgeous boys!
ps-Anyone know who Oliver’s dad is?

Beautiful family. Happiness is always so photogenic! 🙂

What a precious family! and a really good big brother!

Aw, such a beautiful family! I just want to snuggle those little boys. Garcelle and Oliver have the right idea cuddling them, since Jax and Jaid just look so snuggly! 🙂

I was just looking at pictures of Sasha and Malia Obama on the Celebrity Kids/Babies site. I read the comments section about their attire on Inauguration Day and I happened upon negative comments by “Terri”. And now I see another “Terri” above making disparaging comments about this family. I really hope this is not the same person.

If it is, it appears that “Terri” is one unhappy individual. Are you upset that YOU aren’t a celebrity? Do us all a favor and stop putting a wet blanket on everything for the rest of us.

My mom always taught me that if you don’t have anything nice to say, say nothing at all. Gee Whiz!!!
