Big congratulations to Sugar Ray singer Mark McGrath, who has announced that not only is he engaged to his longtime love Carin Kingsland, but they’re expecting twins!
The expectant father gushes that he’s “so excited” for the birth of the babies – one girl and one boy – who were conceived via in vitro fertilization. He won’t have long to wait: Carin, 37, is due next month!
“I love them already, but I need them to come out so I can really shower them with love,” Mark, 42, tells People. “I can’t wait to meet them.”
Like many first time parents, he admits that he and Carin are also nervous about what lies ahead.
“My DNA paranoia is kicking in: I’ve got to feed these children. We’ve got to get the nursery together. And what do you do when you bring the kids home?” he asks. “Most parents are like, ‘Oh, the wonders of child rearing.’ But we’re freaking out! The first year is going to be gnarly.”
As they prepare for their new arrivals, the couple is also busy planning a wedding.
“We love the idea of getting married on 10/10/10,” Mark muses. “But the twins might have another idea.”
