It seems like everyone in Hollywood is having twins these days, from George and Amal to Beyonce. And now Jaime Pressly is joining the group. She and her longtime boyfriend, Hamzi Hijazi have been trying to conceive “for quite a while,” the actress says. “Twins don’t run on either side of our families so we were completely shocked. This wasn’t IVF or anything like that. It was just a shock, and I’m like, ‘Doctor, that’s impossible!'”
Pressly, 39, announced her pregnancy in People’s June 19 issue, which will be out this Friday. Pressly and Hijazi, 38, have been dating since 2011, after meeting at his store in Santa Monica, Lorin.
“I’ve always wanted three kids and the older I’m getting, I’m like, ‘OK, maybe just one more would be nice. 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.'” In a way, Pressley jokes, it’s like “God cutting me some slack.”
Pressly has a 10-year-old son with ex Eric Calvo. She says that this pregnancy is already different than the first.
“I’m 10 years older than I was the last time, so the pregnancy is completely different,” Pressly says. “They’ve been doing, like, river dance on my uterus! I’m excited to do this 10 years later when I’m older and wiser and more calm. It’s going to be a totally different experience, but a great one. I’m so excited for it!”
We wish the two luck in their new phase of life.
