Dominique Dawes and Jaime Pressley Are Latest Celeb Women Over 40 to Welcome Twins

We just noticed this but US Olympics gymnastics gold medalist Dominique Dawes and My Name Is Earl star Jaime Pressly became the latest in the growing list of celebrity women to welcome twins over the age of 40.

 Dawes and her husband welcomed their third and fourth children, a set of fraternal twins, son Lincoln and daughter Dakota in late January.

 Pressly welcomed her twin boys Leo and Lenon on October 14, 2017. Dawes was 41 when she welcomed her children and Pressly was already 40.

Other women in the club include Jennifer Lopez, Mariah Carey, Julia Roberts, Marcia Cross and several others.

Dawes and her Catholic school teacher husband Jeff Thompson are parents to 4-year old daughter Kateri and 2-year old daughter Quinn. Dawes now works as a brand ambassador, a motivational speaker and sometimes gymnastics commentator.

Pressly’s twin boys are the first children the actress and longtime boyfriend Hamzi Hijazi have together. Pressly is also mom to 10-year-old son Dezi James from a previous relationship.

 

Jaime Pressly on Being Pregnant with Twins 10 Years After Last Child



Jaime Pressly is opening up about how expecting twins is a whole different world than just being pregnant with one baby.

“I am feeling very pregnant,” Pressly told PEOPLE Saturday at the Step2 Presents 6th Annual Celebrity Red CARpet Safety Awareness Event at the Commissary at Sony Pictures Studio. “We are 34 weeks.”

On June 7, the Mom star announced she is pregnant with twin boys with her longtime boyfriend Hamzi Hijazi . The news came a decade after she had her first child, son Dezi James, with ex Eric Calvo.

“Doing it 10 years older [is] really night and day!” Pressly admits, saying she feels “10 years wiser” and describing the feeling of carrying two children compared to one, “Having eight limbs moving around is something very alien.”

Celebs Currently Carrying Twins Celebrate #BumpDay

Two celeb moms who are carrying twins celebrated this year’s #BumpDay campaign on Wednesday, September 13, “to encourage people around the world to support all mothers by advocating for healthy pregnancies and safe deliveries.”

My Name Is Earl’s  expectant mama Jaime Pressly, who is pregnant with twin boys, posted an updated photo of her growing belly.

“830 women a day die worldwide from preventable issues during pregnancy,” Pressly captioned a black -and-white photo on Instagram cradling her bump.

She added: “A Healthy pregnancy can set a child up for a healthy future. Celebrate #BumpDay with @IMC_Worldwide & @WhatToExpect.”

Lady Antebellum lead singer Hillary Scott, also expecting twins, participated as well.

“In honor of #bumpday, here’s my bump. Encouraging all the expectant mamas out there to take care of you and your baby(ies)! #maternalhealthis SO important,” she captioned her own photo.

In June, the My Name Is Earl star announced that she is expecting twin boys this fall with longtime beau Hamzi Hijazi.

Preasly’s newborns will join the actress’ 10-year-old son Dezi, whom she co-parents with ex Eric Calvo.

Scott’s twins will join big sister Eisele Kaye, who turned four in July.

Over the past two years, What to Expect When You’re Expecting, a leading brand in pregnancy and parenting, has worked closely with the International Medical Corps to raise awareness for global maternal health, through their #BumpDay initiative.

This year it took place on September 13, 2017 and involved celebrities and influencers sharing  pictures of their current and past pregnancies, statistics on the dangers of pregnancies and deliveries around the world, and encouraging their followers to join the conversation.

Sienna Miller previewed the day in a recent copy of PEOPLE magazine.

Once upon a time, adopting a foreign baby of color from overseas was the celebrity trend.

These days it looks as if all of them are giving birth to twins.

Today, My Name is Earl alum Jaime Pressly announced that she is expecting twin boys with her boyfriend Hamzi Hijazi and without undergoing IVF treatment or anything, she said.

The Moms star said she had almost given up on her dreams of having three children (she is mom to 10-year old son Dezi James with ex Eric Cubiche), given her age (she is 39) and all.

“I’ve always wanted three kids and the older I’m getting, I’m like, ‘Okay, maybe just one more would be nice,’” she told PEOPLE magazine. “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.’”

It was unexpected but obviously welcome surprise especially given that she had been trying to get pregnant for some time, and she assumed she’d never have time to have three children.

How to Give Birth to Twins

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

Pressly said her son is most excited because he has been asking for a sibling since he was in Kindergarten.

“He’s very patient and sweet and gentle and is going to be the best little babysitter ever,” Pressly added. “He’s constantly kissing my belly.”

Although the mom has been through pregnancy before, she believes this pregnancy is going to be “completely different.”

This week, Amal and George Clooney welcomed a pair of boy and girl twins, Ella and Alexander and Beyonce and Jay Z are expecting their twin arrivals soon as well.
