Anna and Stephen 'overjoyed' after welcoming their twins

Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer are now the proud parents of newborn twins.

Representatives for the couple have confirmed that Oscar-winner Anna has given birth to the babies a few weeks earlier than expected, but that the little ones are in good health and their parents are "overjoyed".



The duo, who initially announced the pregnancy in April, waited until June to confirm that they were expecting double trouble.

Details about the birth, including the time, location and gender of the babies has not yet been revealed.

The twins are 30-year-old Anna's first children, whilst Stephen, 42, has 12-year-old Billy and 10-year-old Lilac from previous relationships.

The True Blood stars, who became engaged in 2009, married in 2010 in a romantic Malibu ceremony.
