Kenny Rogers' twin boys are all grown up already and you'll be surprised at how tall they are.

The adorable duo, Jordan and Justin, were welcomed in 2004, seven years after country legend Kenny and his wife Wanda got married.

KENNY AND WANDA ROGERS' LOVE STORY

The couple met decades ago when Kenny went on a blind date hosted by Wanda. Instead of keeping in touch with his date, he called the restaurant, enquiring after Wanda.

Wanda didn't receive the call herself and had to be convinced that her co-workers were not lying to her; that Kenny really was interested in her.

When she finally returned the call, that was it for the two lovebirds. Their chance meeting turned into a happy 22-year marriage.

The couple tied the knot on June 1, 1997, in Athens on his ranch. It was Wanda's second marriage and Rogers' fifth.

KENNY ROGERS' PREVIOUS RELATIONSHIPS

Before meeting the love of his life, Rogers' was married to Janice Gordon in the late fifties, to Jean Rogers in the sixties, to Margo Anderson from 1964 to 1976, and to Marianne Gordon from 1977 to 1993.

He has three children from his previous relationships, so it's not the first time he's raised teenagers. Still, the country singer never faced the challenge of dealing with identical twin boys.

Wanda herself is one half of a twin and Kenny also has twins running in his family. Over the years, the singer has posted lots of pictures featuring his gorgeous wife and beautiful sons.

The most recent ones of the boys, however, were a long time in the making. They came during the Christmas season and included the lovely family of four.

Being the family man he is, Rogers' wanted to just "sit home with [his boys]."

The boys were much bigger than the last time we'd seen them and even sported a hint of beards but still had their dark brown locks just like their mom's.

In one of the pictures, Kenny sat in a wheelchair with the rest of his family behind him.

KENNY ROGERS' CAREER AND AWARDS

The singer has released several hits such as "Love or Something Like It," "The Gambler," "Lucille," and "Lady." His works have earned him two Grammy Awards and several Country Music Association Awards.

Kenny also delved into acting and has appeared in films like 1973's "Sonora," 1975's "The Dream Makers," and 1981's "The Coward of the County."

HEALTH BATTLES

Sadly though, the musician has been facing a lot of health issues as of late. In 2018, he was forced to cancel a number of appearances for his final tour in line with his doctor's advice.

Roger's told Contact Music that his declining health had an impact on his career, specifically his on-stage performances. He said:

''This is all I've done for 60 years, but my mobility has gotten kind of strange, and I don't like to go on stage and have to apologize."

In the midst of his retirement, Kenny thanked his fans for all their support and for being a part of his happiness.

Still, he sacrificed his last offer to create a record because, being the family man he is, he wanted to just "sit home with [his boys]."
