    Sugar and spice is twice as nice for Silversun Pickups bassist Nikki Monninger, who announced that she is pregnant with twin daughters. Monninger will continue to tour as long as she can with her expanding belly before she has to go out on maternity leave. At that point, Sarah Negahdari of The Happy Hollows takes over as a fill-in bassist live.

    "This is such an exciting and happy time for me -- new record, first babies. I'll lay low for a little while, but they won't be able to keep me off the road for too long," Monninger said in a statement. "We'll put the twins to work ASAP. If they can't lift heavy equipment after their first few months of life, we'll start them off selling merch. In the meantime, we're very happy to have Sarah filling in. We are huge fans of The Happy Hollows and are very excited she'll be joining our family."

    Congrats, Nikki! What a cute statement. We can't wait to hear what you name 'em and see photos once the little ladies arrive.
