Update: When appearing on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on NBC on May 27, Wanda Sykes debuted the picture of her newly-born twins:
Among the other things Wanda disclosed to Jay Leno included Alex’s delivery process, parenting, and twins’ tag-teaming.
“There’s no such thing as a smooth delivery. It’s a lot of mop-up…a lot of cleaning up going on after that.”
“Babies are very inconsiderate! Everyone said twins should be here at 35 weeks but nothing! Lots of waiting and they finally induced at week 39. I was [in the delivery room] when they did the C-Section. When the doctors tell you “Don’t look this way,” don’t look that way. It was not pretty
“I watched ‘Jon & Kate Plus 8. I figured they have eight kids, I could get some tips from them.”
“All hell broke loose! It’s like they were tag teaming us, you put one down and then the other one starts crying. There is nothing twin-like about these babies, they are just two babies. I mean, I don’t even think they know each other.” via Just Jared & CBB
