Jaime Pressly is officially part of the Hollywood twin club! The Mom star gave birth to twin boys with her longtime boyfriend Hamzi Hijazi a week ago on October 16, and now she’s sharing the first pic and the names of her sweet new bundles of joy!
“They’re here!” Pressly captioned her snap of the brothers all cozy in their striped onesies. “Introducing our new additions, Leo and Lenon, born October 16th. #DoubleTrouble.”
The new twins are little brothers to Pressly’s 10-year-old son Dezi, whom she shares with ex-fiancé Eric Calvo. In the weeks leading up to the twins’ arrival, Pressly shared her at-home preparations on social media, most recently unveiling an adorable animal-themed nursery that she said she hoped her boys could grow with.
Pressly revealed that she was pregnant back in June, and at the time admitted that she and Hijazi had been trying to have a child for a while but were having trouble conceiving. The news of the pregnancy came as a complete surprise, not least of all because it was twins!
“Twins don’t run on either side of our families so we were completely shocked,” the 39-year-old said. “This wasn’t IVF or anything like that. It was just a shock, and I’m like, ‘Doctor, that’s impossible!'”
Having three children always felt in the cards for Pressly, who said that having two at once feels like it was “God cutting me some slack.”
“The older I’m getting, I’m like, ‘Okay, maybe just one more would be nice.’ I was getting a little sad, but it was like, ‘We’ll give you two in one. You don’t have to do another pregnancy.'”
Congrats to the growing family!
