"It has been an incredibly stressful time for us," Solo said.

"We have been out in public more than we wanted to be but we would like to thank all of the incredible nurses and the doctors who helped take care of our babies during our time in the NICU and we'd also like to thank all of the healthcare workers who have been on the frontlines fighting this pandemic day in and day out.

"From the Stevens family and the new additions of the Stevens family, we would like to wish everybody health, happiness and safety."
