Adorable 4-month-old twin babies, named Clark and Addison after the famous cross streets outside of the home of the Chicago Cubs, have been dubbed the long-struggling baseball team's good luck charms this season.
Fraternal twins Addison, a girl, and Clark, her brother, were born on June 27 and named after the intersection right outside of Wrigley Field.
Shortly after the twins came into the world, the Cubs made it to the World Series for the first time in 71 year, and their parents soon called the newborns the team's good luck charms.
"I grew up watching the Cubs with my grandfather for as long as I can remember," Scott McFarland, Addison and Clark's father and a "life-long" Cubs fan, told ABC News today. "It has been a lifelong hope that they would win a pennant, which happened last night."
"My grandfather had to wait 71 years to see a World Series. I had to wait 33, and my kids only had to wait 4 months," McFarland joked.
McFarland said a friend suggested the names as an idea and "it kind of stuck."
"We thought the Cubs needed all the help they could get," McFarland added.
The family currently lives in Springfield, Illinois, but McFarland said he is bringing the twins to Chicago on Saturday to watch the game. McFarland said they do not have tickets but they are hoping to be able to bring Clark and Addison to one of the games at Wrigley.
"I never really anticipated it happening in my lifetime," McFarland said of the Cubs making it to the World Series. "I think they're still the favorites to win, which is even better."
Amber McFarland, the mother of the twins, told ABC News today, "I never would have thought anything like this would happen even after naming them Addison and Clark. We just fell in love with the names and the connection with the Chicago Cubs," adding that she thought Addison and Clark "just seemed to match twins that were a boy and girl."
Amber McFarland was originally a White Sox fan, but Scott McFarland said he converted her shortly after they started dating and he took her to Wrigley Field.
