Anna Paquin expecting twins

Anna Paquin is expecting twins, her husband Stephen Moyer has revealed.

The English actor, who plays vampire Bill Compton in True Blood, inadvertently spilled the beans about the Canadian-born actress, a month after one of their co-stars let slip about the pregnancy.

"I love my kids beyond anything. They're the best things ever, and having two more is just going to be even more crazy, but that's cool!" he told US Weekly.

The 42-year-old, who has a son and a daughter from previous relationships, said that Anna "is good".

Michael McMillian, who plays Steve Newlin on the HBO vampire drama, said the entire cast has "been impressed" with how Anna is handling her pregnancy.

"The show is taking great care of her, and I think she's probably really happy that she has some time off now to focus on what's to come," he said.

"Stephen is already a terrific father and they make an amazing couple. Anna is really excited, as any expectant mum is. I think they're going to be pretty cool parents."

The 33-year-old actor joked that "there's something in the water over at True Blood", as co-star Sam Trammell also welcomed twins Winston and Gus in August 2011.
