"Twins don't run on either side of our families so we were completely shocked," the 39-year-old actress recently revealed to People. "This wasn't IVF or anything like that. It was just a shock, and I'm like, 'Doctor, that's impossible!'" Pressly, who's already in her second trimester, added that she and Hijazi had been trying to get pregnant "for quite a while," and joked that twins are God's way of "cutting her some slack."

"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's 10-year-old son, Dezi James, (with ex-beau Eric Calvo) is reportedly thrilled by the news. "He's been begging Hamzi and I to give him a sibling since he was in kindergarten. He's very patient and sweet and gentle and is going to be the best little babysitter ever. He's constantly kissing my belly."
Congrats to the happy family!
