A friend of the couple revealed at the beginning of December that the couple were delighted with the arrivals. "Zoe has been ready to drop for some time and they are both ecstatic to be meeting the twins," the source told the Mirror.

"This is a dream come true for both of them, they are absolutely delighted. They have been looking forward to this day for the last nine months. Both want a big family, so this is the start."

It's been a whirlwind period for the couple, who tied the knot in a secret ceremony in Britain in September 2013.

The Avatar beauty had spent the last few weeks of her pregnancy looking for a suitable house for the family. She previously revealed she will be taking quite a lot of time off to look after the newborns.

"It's nature! Like, you just cannot do it. What kind of mother would I be? There's no choice," Zoe, 36, said of her approach to motherhood.

"'You want me to leave my newborn so that I can work 16 hours on your set? He's only a month old, are you out of your mind?'"
