Semi-crazy Nancy Grace gives birth to twins early


Nancy Grace, the “semi-crazy” angry diatribist on Headline News, gave birth to twins on Sunday. I say “semi-crazy” because I want to avoid being sued, not because I really think she’s only semi-crazy. Grace and husband David Linch welcomed a boy, John David, and a girl, Lucy Elizabeth. Nancy had developed a pulmonary edema during her pregnancy and had to be induced early. I have no idea if tyrannical rage can lead to a higher rate of pulmonary edema, but if so, I would have to say that she brought this on herself.

“Her physician determined it would be best for Nancy, and for the twins, to deliver them [on Sunday],” a rep for Grace said. “Lucy Elizabeth, John David, and their proud parents are now resting comfortably.” John David weighed 5 lbs., 1 oz. at birth, and Lucy Elizabeth weighed 2 lbs., 15 oz. according to the rep. Grace, 48, had been due to give birth in January, PEOPLE reported this summer.

“The babies are doing fine. Our little girl is doing just as well as her brother despite her weight – and mom is doing great,” Linch tells PEOPLE. Pulmonary edema involves swelling and/or fluid accumulation in the lungs. No further details were given about Grace’s condition, or that of the twins, on Monday. Grace and Linch, an investment banker in Atlanta, married in April. According to Grace’s rep, John David is named for his father and John the Revelator. Lucy Elizabeth is named after Grace’s mother Elizabeth and grandmother Lucy.

Last month Grace was feted at a baby shower in Manhattan hosted by good pal and former Court TV colleague Diane Dimond. Linch and a host of pals, including Kimberly Guilfoyle and Lisa Bloom, attended and brought gifts such as a pair of his and hers cowboy booties for the twins to match mom’s signature pair.

Nothing classier than his and her cowboy boots. A nearly three pound baby is pretty tiny. Hopefully she’s doing okay. I have twin uncles who were born in the early fifties that weighed 1 pound each and were never expected to live. The nurses kept them alive by flicking their feet to keep their hearts beating. One would think that with all the neonatal technology these days, Lucy will be fine. Now growing up with a rageaholic mother might do a number on her, but physically she’ll probably be as healthy as the next kid. Yes I know Nancy Grace has good reason to be mad: her fiancé was murdered when she was 19 and she’s been a longtime crusader for victim’s rights. I applaud all of that. But just because I admire her tenacity doesn’t mean I don’t find her annoying as all get out. There’s a 50/50 chance that if she ever catches one of the twins egging someone’s house she’ll arrest them, prosecute them, and throw away the key before bedtime hits. Good luck kids.
