Double Congrats
For William Petersen

Twins have arrived for CSI's William Peterson! The proud father of a baby boy and girl also happens to be a grandfather.

William Petersen

CSI star William Petersen is now the father of twins! The 58-year-old actor and his wife Gina Cirone welcomed twins via surrogate last month on July 5.

The twins, a boy and a girl, are the second and third child for William Petersen. The actor's first child is 36-year-old Maite, who herself is the mother of two young boys: Mazrik William born in 2003 and Indigo August, born in Aug. 2009.

The names of William Petersen's new son and daughter have yet to be released, but we do know the pair were born prematurely. "The babies are doing great and are improving every day and we can't wait for them to come home," the couple told People.

Gina, a biology teacher, is the second wife of William Petersen, who was previously wed to Joanne Brady. The twins are the first children for the couple who wed in 2003.

William's CSI stint ended after season nine aired. His investigating duties were passed first to Laurence Fishburne (who wore the badge for a mere two seasons), and come Sept., actor Ted Danson will take a turn as new supervisor D.B. Russell.

Up next for the father of twins is staring in the upcoming comedy-drama film Detachment along with Adrien Brody and James Caan.

Congratulations to Gina and William Petersen on the birth of their twin babies!

What has happened to Billy Petersen? The most watched man on TV for 10 years has basically disappeared. And everyone is wondering if the twins are physically and/or mentally delayed or, frankly, even alive. And socorro arana, how the heck do you know.

What is the big secret about the twins? Mr. Petersen was willng enough to tell the world of their arrival 12mths ago and he has the names of his older daughter/grandson's on his website, so why not the twins. It seems very strange, most parents are overjoyed about new arrivals in the family. Are they well?

Did these babies die? No news after 9 months does not sound good--and Petersen has vanished--are they in mourning? Are the babies not healthy? Curious as to why nothing else has been announced. Doesn't every parent want to brag a bit about new babies?

Is there no further news about the twins, surely after 4mths they have names by now, hope they are well.

Can anyone announce more news on these twins? Home yet? Names? Thanks.

Hope the twins will be home soon, & they will bring you much happiness in the future. When they are older introduce them to their dads friend 'Grissom' he's a great role model & is loved throughout the world. It's a pity he's fiction and not fact he would make a great uncle.
