“Twins don’t run on either side of our families so we were completely shocked,” Pressly told People. “This wasn’t IVF or anything like that. It was just a shock, and I’m like, ‘Doctor, that’s impossible!'”

The “Mom” star revealed that she and Hijazi have been trying to get pregnant “for quite a while,” and her 10-year-old son Dezi James (with her ex Eric Calvo) has been asking them for a sibling too.

“He’s been begging Hamzi and I to give him a sibling since he was in Kindergarten,” Pressly said of her son, who is now “beside himself” with twin siblings on the way. “He’s very patient and sweet and gentle and is going to be the best little babysitter ever. He’s constantly kissing my belly.”

Pressly said she’s “always wanted three kids” and joked that twins is a way of “God cutting me some slack.”

“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!”
