Kieran said he can't wait to take his daughters home.

"Everything is ready for them," Kieran said. "It's just amazing.

The Millers said they fought over names for a while, but are happy with what they chose.

"We are thrilled to be new parents," Jacqueline said. "We are excited for their next adventures."
