When the Lamoureux clan gathered at the family home in Grand Forks, North Dakota, recently, they expected it to be just a gender reveal for Monique Lamoureux-Morando’s baby with her husband Anthony.
While everyone found out Monique and Anthony are having a boy — Mickey — there was another bit of news that twin sister Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson had to share, which they also shared with fans on social media. Seven weeks behind Monique, Jocelyne is 13 weeks pregnant.
“Like everything in life, we’re doing it together,” Jocelyne said.

It will be the first child for both sisters. They will join a big hockey family that includes the Olympic gold medalist twins and their four brothers who all played college hockey. Monique is due in December and Jocelyne is due in January.
The announcement continues an exciting 2018 for the twins, who won the gold in their third try at the Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018, which marked the first U.S. women’s ice hockey gold in 20 years. Jocelyne scored the game-winning shootout goal to knock off Canada in the gold medal game.
The Lamoureuxs have long competed together on the women’s national team, winning three Olympic medals (one gold, two silvers) and eight world championship medals (six golds, one silver).
