Nancy Grace and Her Miracle Babies
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.
