Michael Graziadei, the former Young and the Restless (Y&R) star who played Daniel Romalotti from 2004 through 2013, has announced the birth of twin boys, Oliver Bear and Arlo Wilde.
“On Wednesday, August 25th, these two little monsters were brought into this world with the strength of my queen [Laura, his partner] and the skill and care of our incredible doctor and her team,” Graziadei shared on Instagram.
“Since their delivery, it has been a rollercoaster with both boys having to stay in the NICU [Newborn Intensive Care Unit],” the much-missed Y&R star continued. “Huge shoutout to all the NICU parents out there and to all the doctors and nurses that care for these babies to ensure they all go home happy and healthy. Without their vigilance, support, and love, this would be unbearable and impossible.”

Despite the rollercoaster of emotions, it appears that baby Oliver and Arlo are ready for their close-ups!
“So without further adieu… making their first Instragram appearance… I submit for your approval, Oliver Bear and Arlo Wilde,” Graziadei wrote, finishing his caption with the hashtag “#proudpapa.
