CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A North Carolina couple who lost their two sons in a wreck in 2015 has announced they are expecting twins.

The Charlotte Observer reported that Hadley and Gentry Eddings announced on Facebook that their twins are expected this summer:

“Y’all have held us up in prayer and we are so grateful! Now we ask you to add two more Eddings to your prayers! We are expecting twins this summer!”

Gentry Eddings is a campus pastor and Hadley Eddings teaches 4-year-olds at Charlotte’s Forest Hill church. Their 2-year-old Dobbs Eddings died in the wreck, and Reed Eddings died two days later after being delivered at 38 weeks by emergency cesarean.

Twenty-eight-year-old Matthew Deans of Wilmington has been sentenced to 1 to 3 years in prison after pleading guilty to involuntary manslaughter in the wreck.
