TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNT)- Topeka native, Gary Woodland, and his wife, Gabby, announced the arrival of their baby boy on Saturday, three months after the devastating loss of one of their unborn twins.

Woodland posted a picture on his Instagram account saying, “G and I are so excited to welcome Jaxson Lynn Woodland into the world. He came to us 10 weeks early kicking and screaming at 3lbs. G and Jax are both doing great. Thank you to all the doctors, nurses and NICU for helping take care of our little boy. “
