Nancy Grace and Her Miracle Babies

continued...

But the fury fades away once Grace steps through the door of her Manhattan apartment, where she and Linch live while she tapes her CNN show; they also have a home in Atlanta. Grace stays home with the babies most days until late afternoon, when she leaves to tape her show. She finds herself racing home to the twins just a few hours later because, she says, "I just can't imagine spending an extra minute away from them."

Of course, just two years ago it was hard for her to imagine that she'd be coming home to make baby bottles, or getting excited about bath time, times two. It's even harder for her to remember that not so long ago having two kids at once didn't instantly seem like good news.

"When I first heard it was twins, I was honestly a little put off," she recalls. "I thought, How could I possibly take all that love I was planning to give to one baby and split it in two? I worried I'd be giving them each 50 percent. But now I realize: You don't have to split your love — you just grow more. Your heart just gets bigger and bigger."

The tender, bighearted mother is not the Nancy Grace you'll often see on TV — but that's just fine with her. All she needs is an audience of two.
