NEW YORK (WTHR) — Bode and Morgan Miller have exciting news to share: they're expecting identical twin boys in the fall!

The former Olympic skier, 41, and the professional beach volleyball player, 32, made the announcement on "TODAY" Monday morning.

Shortly after their appearance on "TODAY," Morgan posted an announcement photo on Instagram of their four kids, Neesyn, 11; Sam, 6; Nash, 4; and Easton, 10 months.

Losing a child while pregnant was the most confusing experience of my life. The conflict of emotions from what was pure joy turned to guilt and terror overnight. How could I love this baby the way I loved Emmy? Was it okay to love this baby the way I loved Emmy? It felt like by loving my son, I was trying to replace her. The fear of birthing my son and what that meant .....a monumental step forward....proof that time continued without her when all I wanted was for time to stop. But let me say this....I couldn’t have been more wrong. Easton provided us an even closer bond to his sister. The moment I heard his cry, something sparked back alive in my soul. Hope. Love. I’m not sure. But in that moment, I knew I was Mom and my kids deserved the world from me. Everything was going to be okay. My joy and grief could coexist. Now, I can actually say with joy and excitement that we are expecting identical twin boys. From the day I met my husband, he has always said he wanted identical twin boys born on his birthday. We are due on the lucky day/angel number of 11/11 which is not far off from @millerbode Birthday of 10/12. From the beginning of this pregnancy, we knew Emmy had her hands in this miracle somehow.

The Olympic athletes lost their 19-month-old daughter, Emmy, in June 2018 after accidentally falling into a neighbor's pool.

"We carry Emmy with us every day,'' Morgan said on "TODAY."

"That part doesn't ever get easier, but we just imagine what it would be like to have her there, and we share our tears and we share our memories and we revisit stories. Keeping her a part of our family has really made this journey a little bit easier for our family."
