Ben and Jessica Mulroney have welcomed fraternal twin boys — including one named after former prime minister Brian Mulroney.

Brian Gerald Alexander and John Benedict Dimitri were born Thursday morning, according to a news release from CTV.

They're the first children for the host of CTV's entertainment news show ETalk and his wife, who married Oct. 30, 2008.

Ben Mulroney is the second of the former PM's four children.

In a statement, Ben Mulroney said his wife and babies were doing well.

"Both boys are healthy and beautiful," the 34-year-old Mulroney said. "Jessica is radiant and in great health and spirits."
