Samantha Brown had her twins! She announced on Facebook, “The babies are here! Please welcome Ellis James, 6 lb. 10 oz. and Elizabeth Mae, 5 lb. 12 oz. Everyone is healthy and doing great! Pics soon!”

Our girl-meets-world sweetheart, Samantha Brown has been hosting shows on Travel Channel for the last 13 years. And now she’s embarking on her biggest adventure yet – motherhood!

When she first announced her pregnancy, we asked our globe-trotting gal — who’s traveled to dozens of countries, hundreds of cities and countless hotels around the world — how life on the road will change with the new additions.

“One thing’s for sure, these 2 will be the most well-traveled babies. We already have on schedule in May a 9-day trip planned through Germany. So one of the first things on our to-do list after they are born is to get baby passports,” says Samantha.

While we know motherhood is going to change Sam’s life, we’re sure she’ll be taking fans along for the ride.  Stay tuned for more from Sam (and babies!)…

And be sure to catch Sam when she hosts Travel Channel’s first-ever “Trip of a Lifetime” special premiering on Sunday, Jan. 27 at 8|7c.

    Congratulations!! My husband and I are very big fans and love your shows!! We are very happy for you!! We are taking our first out of country vacation, or I should say it the correct way, "holiday"!!! We are traveling to Germany, Paris and London and back to Germany to catch our military flight back home. We have always dreamed about a vacation like this, watching your shows has given us so much enthusiasm to finally take it. With my husband being in the military and us having 4 children we barely have time to sit on the couch next to each other alone for 5 min. Thank you for making all the locations you visit come to life and I'm sure you are going to be a fabulous mom!! If you have any last minute suggestions or advice for us on our locations I would appreciate it very much, we want to see as much as we can but within a reasonable budget and we really want to take in the not so touristy sights as well!!

    Congratulations from one mother of twins (girls, 17 years old) to a brand new mom of twins! I have always enjoyed watching you as you went from place to place. You are about to enbark on the biggest adventure of all. Like any well seasoned traveller, schedule, schedule, schedule and then stick to it! Do not let one of your new arrivals stray from the course (that means waking a sleeping baby). Best wishes, you are in for the ride of your life! :) Your family is * truly blessed *.

    It will be very interesting to see how Samantha travel with the twin babies. I hope she will bring a nanny with her. We didn't. We are frugal traveller and crazy. Our twin girls had their passports since they were one month old. It was funny to see how much they have changed now (2 years old now) compared to the photos on the passport. We don't know how foreign immigration offices can even recognize them. Their first trip was at 3 months old, 21 days trip to Vienna, Salzburg, Prague and Budapest. The girls have been to nine counties and four continents before two years old. Follow our travel blog for jetlag stories, screaming, madness and travel crankiness:

    Congradulations to you both. What a beautiful blessing for the both of you. Enjoy the twins, they grow up so quickly. I am really looking forward to you return on the Travel channel.

    Formal education is the type in which certain environment is being provided to children and their journey starts from the schooling in which they get prior secondary education and after that they people are supposed to choose profession of their own interest and adopt is a way of earning money.

  25. Education sector of a country would help in the development; only if the country believes in the merit system while giving jobs to the candidates, more over enough job must be available for the people who are passing out.

    Very Interesting blog share. I like your post. because i search always that type blogs.

    We are fans of the pre-motherhood Samantha! Our 48-year old son has just become a first time father…of twins. What I really want to say is that we are long time fans and we have used Samantha's Travel Chanel videos to make our tours of Belgium and Italy much more meaningful. These videos really work! We are thirteen years older…and we still revisit them and we remember! Get her Travel Channel videos and you will have 'tons' of worthwhile advice. We would follow them all over again!
