Moms actress Jamie Pressly has just received two beautiful bundles of joy. On October 16th, she gave birth to two baby boys. The actress announced the arrival of her new additions to the family via a sweet Instagram post that she revealed this morning, October 23rd.
The sweet little boys are decked in blue striped onesies with matching caps. The My Name Is Earl star, who is 40, already has a 10-year-old child with her ex. She announced she was surprisingly expecting twins on Instagram in a fun post this summer.
For some, it can be difficult to conceive past a certain age and once you hit 40, pregnancy can become high risk, especially when pregnant with twins. The actress and her beau were trying to get pregnant for awhile without any luck and talked about potentially trying IVF in order to conceive.
Interestingly enough, they didn’t get that far because Pressly became pregnant soon after.
The real kicker was that she was also pregnant with twins, which is sometimes much more likely when going through the IVF process. Pressly joked that she thinks it was God letting her off the hook so she wouldn’t have to get pregnant again at her age. A two in one type of deal; two babies, one pregnancy.
Pressly explains that during the first ultrasound, they were so eager to just hear the baby’s heartbeat and much to their surprise, there were two heartbeats. Pressly said she was so shocked that she had the doctor repeat the fact that she was having twins because she was so shocked and confused.
The new twins, named Leo and Lenon, will have a little built-in buddy with each other. That was one of the most exciting parts for Pressly as her firstborn is much older.
Here’s to the new mom, her burgeoning family and getting through that tough newborn stage with as much sleep and sanity as humanly possible.
Moms everywhere know that one new baby is a complete handful; two is enough to mandate some serious hysteria.
