Minnesota Wild forward Zach Parise and his wife Alisha gave birth to their first children, twins Jaxson and Emelia. The Wild made the announcement via Twitter Thursday.

The Wild said Amelia was born at 9:17 a.m. and Jaxson was born one minute later.

Parise, the alternate captain and Bloomington native, is currently on injured reserve. The team takes on Phoenix Thursday night.

Last year, Minnesota Twins catcher Joe Mauer and his wife, Maddie, had girls Emily and Maren.
