The True Blood twins have arrived.
“We can confirm that Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer recently welcomed their twins into the world,” reps for the actors tell PEOPLE exclusively.
“The babies were born a few weeks early, but are in good health and both Mom and Dad are overjoyed.”
Wow. That seems like the shortest gestation period ever, right? We found out that Anna was pregnant back in April, and shortly after, found out that she was having twins, and wow. That time in between sure flew, huh? I just hope that everyone’s really OK, because while twins sometimes do come early, it sounds like these little ones came more than just “a few weeks.” Do the math—even if Anna was two months pregnant when she announced her pregnancy (which may even be a stretch, because women who become pregnant with twins often show pretty early on and when she made her announcement, there was hardly a bulge, let alone a bump, in sight), that’d make her only seven or so months pregnant.
Or hell, even throw all the math out the window, because I f-cking count on my fingers anyway, let’s take a look at the most recent photo we have of Anna—which is that picture, up at the top of this post. This photo was only taken two weeks ago. And if you’ve ever seen a lady carrying twins, she’s often way, way huge.
Them’s be tiny babies—cute babies, but tiny babies, nonetheless!
Congratulations, guys! I think you’ll make a great mama, Anna!

Oh my goodness, how adorable is a pregnant Anna Paquin? Holy God.
If you guys didn’t already know, Anna‘s pregnant with two fetuses, and I have no doubts that those two fetuses will be just as adorable as Anna herself (even though some of you don’t exactly share my sentiments about how adorable Anna actually is).
I’m just going to leave these photos here with you guys, because I don’t know about where you’re at, but we’re getting some pretty kick-ass storms that have been regularly knocking out my internet service, and I want to get this bad boy up before I lose another three hours of access.
Anna Paquin baby bump, whee!

I know that’s not really new news, because we’ve known that Anna‘s having twins for a few weeks now, but damn. Look at that bump! She just announced her pregnancy back in April, and I realize that she’s having twins, so she’s going to have a much larger bump than, say, someone who was only baking one baby pie in there, but how far along is she already? Wow.
One way or the other, she sure looks gorgeous.

First, though, let me tear this magazine cover apart, because what the f-ck happened to Anna Paquin‘s face? Her eyes are normally a little close together as it is, but it looks like Fashion positively Photoshopped her features onto an entirely different head. What the hell is that all about? Don’t know what I’m talking about? Stare at the space between her eyes for a second—the rest of her face will spread out before your very eyes. I don’t know if they did it in an attempt to contour girlfriend’s face, but this—THIS!—is what she looks like on a normal day:
Anyway, here’s an excerpt from an interview she did with Canada’s Fashion magazine (crafty title, that), where she talks about character inspiration, being married to Stephen Moyer, and—of course—fashion:
“I’m not a ballgown kind of girl. I don’t think the red carpet is my prom. I prefer edgier cuts and darker designs because they suit me. I’ve learned how to dress for my shape, and I have to be able to sit, stand, walk properly and shake hands in an outfit without feeling confined. I’ve spent a lot of time figuring out what looks good for my body for fittings, and I’ve taken notes. I’m 5’4? and change! I know I will never be like Gisele [Bundchen], and I also know I will never be a hipless, assless supermodel.”
On her ‘True Blood’ role as Sookie Stackhouse:
“There have always been aspects of her that I connect to, empathize with and understand – that’s the only way I can approach my job. You have to find a common ground with any character. I spend a lot of time with scripts, looking for my truth.”
On being married to Stephen Moyer:
“Work does come up pretty frequently, because that is how we spend most of our year. Aside from trying to spend no more than two or three weeks apart, I’ve never been one for rules in a relationship. I don’t have any guidelines on how much shop talk we have at home.”
And for those of you out there who say you have no opinion on Anna Paquin—how could you not? She’s so neat!

Have I mentioned lately how I kind of love Anna Paquin? Because I do, honestly, I do. Ever since she was in the most obscure, most random film in the world, Darkness (show of hands if you’ve seen it; it’s way creepy), I’ve been a huge fan, and YES I KNOW that she’s been in a whole crap-ton of other things that I should admire her for, and I do, but Darkness really made me listen up.
Anna on maintaining mystery about herself:
I don’t know about that. There isn’t a lot of unchartered territory that hasn’t been covered or reported on or noted or observed. … [I'm private] not in some weird recluse way. I think it’s important to have things that are just for you and people that are closest to you. Some people share absolutely everything, but then what do you have left that’s yours? It diminishes what’s really special in your life.
And on “outing” herself for the Give a Damn PSA, and whether or not she regretted it:
Absolutely not. I think it’s a really minor biographical detail. If you’re going to talk about some cause in a way that’s meaningful, you should identify why it means something to you. … I’m sure for some people saying they’re bisexual feels less scary than making a statement that they’re gay. For me, it’s not really an issue because I’m someone who believes being bisexual is actually a thing. It’s not made up. It’s not a lack of decision. It’s not being greedy or numerous other ignorant things I’ve heard at this point. For a bisexual, it’s not about gender. That’s not the deciding factor for who they’re attracted to.
Now, a few of you guys posted that you were kind of indifferent on sweet Anna here, and that? Well I just don’t understand that noise. She’s cute, compelling, talented, not at all a cookie-cutter version of modern Hollywood actress, and she’s got a damn brain in her head that she frequently uses for the betterment of humanity. Really, what’s not to like? That she plays a television character by the name of Sookie Stackhouse? Because guys, I think some things can be gotten over if we really, really give it the team effort.
I LOVE YOU ANNA.

True Blood costars Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer are expecting, their reps confirmed to EW today. The pregnancy is Paquin’s first; Moyer, 42, has two children from previous relationships. Paquin, 29, is due this fall. The couple were married in Malibu, Calif., in 2010 after meeting on the set of True Blood ‘s pilot season in 2007.
Isn’t that so, so great? I’m always like, “Wow,” too, when I remember that Anna Paquin is only twenty-nine years old, because I’ll be twenty-nine in June, and it always floors me that, though Anna seems to have been around as an adult my entire waking life, she’s just a few months older than I am. And she’s so hot, but she’s married to that Stephen Moyer dude. Much like I am over how some people are all obsessed with Alexander Skarsgard (or maybe it’s just True Blood and vampires in general), I don’t get this guy’s appeal all that much, either. He’s OK, I guess, but all I’m saying is that this baby will be genetically blessed if it ends up looking more like its mother than its father, you know?
As for True Blood, this year’s series premiere airs on June 10th, a mere three days before I turn twenty-nine. The premiere is highly anticipated by its following, and I won’t be watching. Oh! And also, how are they going to tie this into True Blood‘s story line for next year, if it’s renewed*? Are the show’s developers going to pull a Twilight and Sookie’ll give birth to a vampire baby? Is that going to explain why she’s growing a bulbous belly and is suffering debilitating morning sickness? Will there be bloodletting and vampire venom to help with the child’s delivery? Best of all, will there be werewolves present to assist in the process? Sure hope so!
*I’m totally kidding. I actually know nothing about this show. I mean, could this even potentially happen without some kind of infringement lawsuit, do you think?
