Wallace, who was 23 years old at the time, would be welcoming her twins alongside her fiancé, Trey Turner. The Ashtabula, Ohio, natives had a long history: they had attended the prom together in 2013 before they grew up and became parents four years later.
Their family’s story wouldn’t veer into headline-grabbing territory until Wallace gave birth to their twins in July of 2017. The pair decided to name the babies, both boys, after biblical prophets: Jeremiah Michael and Elijah Lee.
Wallace recounted to Fox 8 the moment she realized how special her sons were. She said, “The second day that we were in the hospital, one nurse came in, and she’s like, ‘Look at [Jeremiah’s] fluffy curly hair! His fluffy curly blond hair!’ I’m like, ‘Wait, what?’”
