Posting to Instagram, the loved-up duo shared a slew of sweet pics of twin bubs Levi and Tate alongside the caption: “Welcome home my sweet little angels.”

It comes as the reality stars kept fans updated on the tiny tots’ condition after they remained in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit after arriving 10 weeks early.

Recently, Bryce penned a touching tribute to his two boys, writing a sweet message on Instagram paired with a photo of himself standing over his sons while in hospital.

“Loved for the boys you are, the men you will become and the sons you will always be 💙 👶🏼 Tate & Levi 👨‍👩‍👦‍👦 @lissrawson,” Bryce wrote.

The sentimental post was slightly contrasted by Bryce’s former on-screen pal Jason Engler, who was quick to comment: “We need a tan on those legs bra they fluorescent!!”

The new dad, however, had his retort at the ready, replying: “7 weeks in hospital, don’t get much sun in there! 😂.”

When the bubs originally moved out of their isolettes, their mum Melissa shared an update with her followers exclaiming how excited she was to be able to dress her boys in baby clothes.

“Now that the boys are out of their isolettes and in their open cribs, we can finally dress them in baby clothes (00000 is still too big for them 😂) and properly hear their gorgeous little sounds and chatter. Both boys have just started suckling which is another step closer to coming home.”

Fans of the couple have been watching closely as Melissa and Bryce document their journey as new parents. Earlier this month, Melissa was full of emotion as she embraced her sons for the first time.

“The first time ever holding my babies together,” Melissa captioned an Instagram post where she cuddled her boys. “Of course I absolutely sobbed (happy tears).

“I love you now and forever, Levi and Tate.”
