Uh, seriously, what is in the water in Hollywood?
Just yesterday, George and Amal Clooney welcomed their twins. Beyoncé is due to give birth to a pair any day now. And now Jaime Pressly has announced that she’s expecting twins. This is getting a little out of control.
Pressly shared her announcement exclusively with People magazine, revealing that she has twin boys on the way.
“Twins don’t run on either side of our families so we were completely shocked,” she said. “This wasn’t IVF or anything like that. It was just a shock, and I’m like, ‘Doctor, that’s impossible!'”
Pressly and her longtime boyfriend, Hamzi Hijazi, have been trying to get pregnant for a long time, she added, and the twins were actually a nice surprise.
“I’ve always wanted three kids and the older I’m getting, I’m like, ‘Okay, maybe just one more would be nice,'” she said. “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.'”
Pressly already has a 10-year-old son whom she shares with her ex, Eric Calvo, and he’s stoked to be a big brother.
“He’s been begging Hamzi and I to give him a sibling since he was in kindergarten,” she said. “He’s very patient and sweet and gentle and is going to be the best little babysitter ever. He’s constantly kissing my belly.”
We’re also stoked about Pressly’s baby news, but the crazy influx in celeb twins lately is definitely raising our eyebrows. Is it an Illuminati conspiracy? We’re just going to go ahead and go with that.
