Minnesota Wild forward Zach Parise's wife Alisha gave birth to twins on Thursday morning, welcoming Jaxson and Emelia to the world.


Parise, a Minneapolis native, is currently on the Wild's injured reserve list as he recovers from a fractured foot. He is expected to be healthy in time for next month's Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.

Fellow Minnesota superstar athlete Joe Mauer and wife Maddie welcomed a set of twins back in July of 2013.

The Parise-less Wild are in Phoenix Thursday night.
