MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Minnesota Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph has been a busy man lately, and life just got a little more hectic for him.

Rudolph caught five passes for 55 yards and a touchdown in Monday night’s 24-10 win over the New York Giants. On Wednesday, Rudolph and his wife, Jordan, announced that they now have two new additions to their family.

According to an Instagram post by Jordan Rudolph, the girls were born late Tuesday night. Their names are Finley Claire and Andersyn Kate. Kyle Rudolph said on Twitter both twin girls are happy and healthy and they couldn’t be more excited as new parents.

Rudolph joins at least two other Minnesota professional athletes with twins. Joe Mauer and his wife had twin girls, and Zach Parise and his wife also have twins.

The Vikings host the Houston Texans on Sunday at U.S. Bank Stadium. The Vikings are looking for a 5-0 start heading into their bye week. Rudolph is second on the team in receiving with 19 catches for 221 yards and three touchdowns.
