"Jameson West Messner and Rocco McQueen Messner are now cozy at home loving family life," the new parents exclusively tell People. "These angels have blessed us with 14 pounds of love from above. Sweet boys, stay healthy!"

Both boys were born at 8:12 a.m. and weighed 6 lbs., 14 oz., and 6 lbs., 10 oz. Although the news that Morris and Messner were expecting twins caught them off guard, the new mom is overjoyed that her baby boys have a special bond.

"When the doctor detected twins based on specific HCG levels in my blood work, he called us in for an ultrasound and said, 'Let me just check on something I already know...'" Okay, one for you, and one for you!' "We were stunned and overjoyed," Kathryn recalls. "These brothers now have a lifelong best friend! What person wouldn't want that?"

Morris says Jameson West, whose name is "a combination of several family names" on Morris' side, and Rocco McQueen, whose name "represents everything Johnny's about," are starting to show their polar-opposite personalities. 

"Jameson has a sweet and fiery Irish swagger to him, and Rocco has a laid-back Italian cool," Kathryn says. "We had a few names in mind, but once they arrived, we knew who was who."

"Jameson was learning to breastfeed in the hospital but got a little confused where to latch on," Morris jokes about the cheek-chomping photo at left. "Some retaliation is in order for Rocco." The proud parents affectionately refer to Jameson as The Boss and Rocco as Mellow Yellow; the two are known as The Dirty Messners.

"We are overwhelmed by the love we feel... a love we had no idea existed," Morris and Messner tell People, "We are truly blessed." The actress and Messner announced their pregnancy in April, three years into their relationship. "She and Johnny are overjoyed," her rep told People at the time.

Kathryn Morris Opens Up About Her Struggles As a Mother of Twins With Autism

You might recognize me from CBS's Cold Case. For seven seasons, I played the lone detective who solved crimes that most cops couldn't solve in record time and with cool music. For a long time, I was focused on my career, and having a baby was not on my radar. I drank a lot of coffee, worked nights and days, traveled the world, made TV money, and was the cool aunt to my co-stars' kids.

Then I wanted more, and the desire to become a mother appeared. I was smitten. We had identical twins. I was complete. At the age of three, the twins were diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder. A bombshell twice over.

My kids are perfect. I can't imagine them without their autism - their brilliant traces of "just being" on that spectrum have made me a better mother and person. However, our epic journey introduced me to a secret society of sick kids, misfits, and savants - bankrupted families in constant emergency mode, feeling this pandemic-like panic for a lifetime - epidemic numbers of cute babies who grow up into invisible people in permanent quarantine.

As an actor, I was fortunate to have the resources to put my life on hold while I sought treatment and assistance. (Today, my boys are healthy, happy third graders.) However, not everyone has those resources.
