In the mirror selfie, Sara cradles the newborn — her first child — over her shoulder, accompanied by a caption reading “My #crybaby.”
The caption has a double meaning, referring to both the actual baby and the siblings’ upcoming new album, Crybaby.
Due in October, Crybaby will be the 11th studio album for the identical twins during a particularly prolific year that also featured the release of their 10th LP, Still Jealouswhich dropped in February.
Sara herself then responded to ET Canada’s tweet of the news:
Sara has welcomed her first child. And I welcome it into my house but for only a few hours and then it needs to go home. 👶🍦 https://t.co/YkofQnmTvg

Speaking with Billboard earlier this year, the duo explained why they’ve decided to open up and share their lives with fans.
“The other day someone we were speaking to, I think it was a publicist, said, ‘All my clients want to be mysterious, they don’t want anyone to know anything about them.’ We’re the exact opposite of that,” said Tegan. “We’ve always wanted people to understand us. As artists, that’s the biggest thing that I’m trying to satisfy: I want to be known. Not famous — I want you to listen to my song and feel like you understand me, because whatever I wrote makes you feel seen.”
