Another MPP, Peter Fonseca of Mississauga East, is the proud parent of tiny twins -- with considerable help from his wife Christina Yaremczuk of course.
They don't have to look far for free advice. Environment Minister Laurel Broten from nearby Etobicoke-Lakeshore gave birth to twins in October.
"There must be something in the water at Queen's Park," remarked Fonseca, a former Olympic marathoner who is about to learn some new lessons in endurance.
"It's tiring enough already," he says of the frequent visits to the hospital to see his twin boys.
They were born Dec. 11, with Alexander weighing in at 3.7 pounds and Sebastian at 3.13 pounds. Fonseca expects them to come home from hospital early next month.
"They're small but they're gaining weight," notes Fonseca, who named the smaller boy after famous runner Sebastian Coe.
The other lad is named after Sudbury swimmer Alex Bauman, a gold medallist -- a name chosen by Yaremczuk, head coach of the Oakville Aquatic Club.
