Welcome to the world, Vittorio and Lozen!

Former U.S. Women's National Soccer Team goalkeeper Hope Solo, 38, and her husband, former NFL player Jerramy Stevens, have publicly announced the birth of their twins. 

Solo announced on Instagram that the babies were born on March 4. 

Uninterrupted, an athlete empowerment brand, shared a video of the new mom with her two new bundles of joy.

"What have we been doing during our time in quarantine? Well as you can see, we've been incredibly busy," Solo explained in the video

The soccer star said Vittorio Genghis Stevens and Lozen Orianna Judith Stevens -- the couple's first children -- were born in the middle of a pandemic.

"It has been incredibly stressful times for us," Solo continued. "We've 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 NICU."

Solo first announced her pregnancy on Instagram in December.
