The first-time dads were married in 2014 after meeting in a 12-step program one year earlier. At their dream wedding, Jackson said they are partners in every way.

“We’ve both been through a lot in our lives,” Jackson told PEOPLE exclusively. “We got sober together. Now we sing and we dance together. It blows my mind.”

Before their latest beginning as a family of four, Jackson said his wedding was the start of something new and positive for the couple.

“This means a new beginning for us,” Jackson said of their woodsy wedding. “It was love at first sight and this is just the culmination of that.”

Jesus, is that him on the left? He’s unrecognizable!
Either he’s ill or he was up with the birth mother for days while she was in labor.

…and yes, it is a little creepy for a parent to think their kid’s mouth is magic.

Are these the only type of articles you can comment on? Celebrities babies has been the only articles I have seen a comments section.

What happened to the Disqus section of the website?

Guest, the Discus section of People became nothing but a bunch of semi-professional trolls commenting as rudely as possible, and trying to outdo each other…they actually congratulated each other on their hatefulness and crude hatefulness. They sucked the life out of the comments section, and basically told everyone else to shut up. Don’t blame PEOPLE for shutting it down…blame the trolls whose goal in life to ruin the fun for anyone who isn’t a jerk.

Congratulations to the new parents…beautiful babies.

They got tired of being criticized! Too bad, you’d think a little critique would go a long way and be appreciated.

I am SO happy for Cheyenne. I know he has wanted this for a long time, but he does NOT look well.
