Twin boys born to Charlotte couple who lost 2 sons after car crash

- A North Carolina couple has welcomed twin boys two years after their two sons died.

 
Gentry and Hadley Eddings welcomed twin boys, Isaiah Dobbs and Amos Reed, into the world on Monday. 
 
Their middle names are a tribute to their older brothers. Two-year-old Dobbs Eddings died in a 2015 car wreck, and Reed Eddings died two days later after being delivered at 38 weeks by emergency cesarean section.
 
Gentry Eddings is a campus pastor and Hadley Eddings teaches 4-year-olds at Charlotte's Forest Hill church. 
 
 
"Y'all have held us up in prayer and we are so grateful! Now we ask you to add two more Eddings to your prayers! We are expecting twins this summer," Hadley Eddings posted on the Prayers for Eddings Family Facebook page in January.
 

Matthew Deans, of Wilmington, North Carolina, was sentenced to 1 to 3 years in prison after pleading guilty to involuntary manslaughter in the wreck.
 
 
A number of people expressed their joy and wished congratulations to the couple on social media. 
 
"Congratulations! They are perfect! Love their names!" Aleta Hill Neel wrote. 
 
"Congrats Hadley and Gentry! The boys' names are a perfect fit! So happy for you all! Congratulations," Erin Duckworth wrote.
