Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer take their twins out for a walk

I’m really sorry if you were hoping from the title that there would be actual pictures of the twins in here. When I saw this story this morning I got all excited hoping for twin photos, but it’s not happening. I couldn’t exactly write “the twins are covered up, don’t even bother opening this story” because that would be like a shoe salesman telling you not to try on those gorgeous stacked heels because they hurt like a mofo. (I have shoes on my mind a lot.)

Anna and Stephen went for a walk with their babies, which are around two months old, we can’t be sure, and are either two boys, two girls or a boy and a girl. That sounds ridiculous, right? Well it’s true, we have no idea what sex the babies are, when they were born exactly, or what their names are. The True Blood co-stars, who were married in August, 2010, went for a walk with their newborns on the boardwalk in Venice yesterday. If they weren’t hoping to be photographed they’re sure handling it well considering how paparazzi-shy they normally seem.

The twins are 30 year-old Anna’s first children. Stephen, 43, has a 12 year-old son and a 10 year-old daughter from two previous relationships.

Anna looks great, doesn’t she? I wonder if these two have a nanny or help at home at all. If not, they’re probably super tired. It’s frustrating writing about these two. They’re so tight with their personal life that we don’t know much about them. There may be a slight clue in some of these pics as to the gender of the babies. Commenters on US Weekly point out that one of the blankets has a pink print and one has a blue print. I took a closer look and one has a red caterpillar print and the other has bees on it, so that’s not a clue!

    those purple sunglasses are cute

    Well I guess they told us! Uh, actually no they didn’t tell us…anything.

  3. lori says:

    I love that they have a Britax stroller.

    • Samigirl says:

      ME TOO! I have a “big girl” Britax carseat for when little bit gets a little older, but I couldn’t afford the Britax travel system. I have Chicco (which I noticed today that Reese Witherspoon has), and I feel it’s an excellent travel system as well.

      They look very happy, and Anna looks amazing!

  4. India says:

    Why are they hiding them?

    • Meg says:

      The second they show them the fiendish public will be picking apart every single thing… that one looks too fat… why is it dressed like that? oh my god, how much did that dress cost? it is for a baby! what a waste of money

  5. heatheradair says:

    “real life Bill” is sexy…..”true blood Bill” is a cold fish. SO — I love pictures of these two “in real life” because they seem so chilled out and loved up. He benefits from some scruff……

  6. bej says:

    Wow, hadn’t heard anything about the birth of these babies. They really do the ‘privacy’ thing well. Good on them. And Anna looks great. In fact they both look really happy. Congrats to them. Though I did get my hopes up that I would see actual babies, rather than a double pram & printed baby blankets

  7. marie says:

    damnit, I should never have clicked on this, disappointment.. I’m all for her protecting her privacy, but don’t tempt me-that’s just wrong..

    • EmmaStoneWannabe says:

      Hahah I know! Was dying to see the actual babies too. This level of privacy reminds me of Isla Fisher & SBC w their baby news..or lack thereof.

  8. Sweet Dee says:

    I love this couple in real life. Don’t get me wrong, I love True Blood but Sookie and Bill are both kind of douchey characters by design (love me some Viking Dong mmmhmm). In real life they seem down to earth and likable and funny, I love how they’re smiling and so affectionate. She looks so good here! I love that they had twins! I’m not baby-cray but there are 4 sets in my family including my younger brothers and I remember them as babies and little kids–it’s a completely different story than one, and it’s something strangers make awkward jokes about a lot in public too. Anyway. Squeee! Twin vampire babies!

  9. Elizabeth says:

    I appreciate that they don’t want the paps falling all over the babies and so they cover them up. It’s what any protective parent would do.

    But are they sure the babies are safe underneath all that stuff? Somewhere in me I hear my British mother screaming “Fresh air! They need fresh air! And sunshine!”.

    • stacey says:

      Those blankets are aiden & adonis (somthing like that) I have the same ones. They are super light and airy you can actually see through them in person. best blankets ever!!!!

    • bluhare says:

      Elizabeth, my British mother is screaming with yours!

    • Anon says:

      Elizabeth, Bluhare the Danish mother in me is screaming along side yours. Also, wish people would realize that car seats are for cars. So bad for little ones backs….

      • Yibis says:

        Actually, I read that laying newborns flat has now been proven stressful to them because they are born naturally curved, like in the womb. They stay balled up for quite awhile so car seats are not actually bad for their backs.

        My son was also 2 mo premature and I was concerned about what kind of car seat would be good for him and the NICU doc said they can ride in their car seats, as long as they pass the preemie breathing test, for up to 5 hours. I think they were probably fine for a stroll.. 😉

  10. BreeinSEA says:

    Why are these pictures so refreshing? Is it because of how normal they seem? That stroller is a stroller any of us could buy. Not some Italian fancy one. (No offense to fancy Italian stroller owners I am may be envious but practical, that for less I can buy a box on wheels to do the same thing)

  11. LadyAnne says:

    Such a lovely, low-key couple. Love them.

  12. Katy says:

    I love this couple. They are so cute together and look so happy!!

  13. RobN says:

    I’ve read that the twins were quite early and spent some weeks in the hospital, so they might really just be starting to go out with them.

    I think the keeping the sex and names quiet is really counter productive; if you want privacy then hiding it only makes it more interesting to people who care about them.

    • Christina says:

      I agree. I appreciate it when celebs don’t try to use their babies for PR purposes, but this is going too far. Why not just have their spokesperson say the baby was a boy/girl born on x date. Mother and baby doing well. And leave it at that. Making a big mystery out of a mundane occurrence just seems pretentious to me.

      • Kristina says:

        Going to far? Really? Because they didn’t announce to the via a publicist the names and/or sex of their children?Why would they be obligated to do that? They are actors who work, go home, and live their lives. I admire them for not pushing their “Babies!!!” on us. I don’t think it’s meant to be “mysterious if they just don’t care.

      • Christina says:

        Of course they’re not obligated to announce anything.

        My point is that if they want to keep their children private – which I think is a wonderful change from so many celebs – then it’s a bit counterproductive not to make a brief statement simply mentioning the sex and maybe names of the babies, and leave it at that. Not doing so is going to make people more, not less, curious. I hardly see how such a statement would be an invasion of their privacy.

      • LAK says:

        ……But @Christina, these two don’t famewhore out their private lives to get ahead. And they keep themselves to themselves despite being papped occasionally. They are pretty private so we don’t need to know anything about their babies.

        And giving out information about the babies only fuels media/public hunger for more information as evidenced by this thread. It’s a slippery slop to being hunted down and having no peace to enjoy their lives.

        There has never been a situation without asking law enforcement to step in where one tit bit of information resulted in less rather than more public/media scrutiny.

  14. Mirella says:

    I love this couple! Glad to see them out with their twins 🙂

  15. Izzy says:

    They’re a supercute couple. Congrats to them. Also, it’s nice to finally see Anna Paquin smile in a photo. She normally looks a bit of a sourpuss when photographed, even when she’s on a red carpet and the photo-taking is expected.

  16. T.C. says:

    I’m always wary of a guy who has different kids by different women. It’s nice to see them looking so happy together so hope this relationship works better than his only two.

    • Iggles says:

      I agree. Anna is his THIRD baby’s momma!

      I wish them best of luck, and hope it works out for him this time around.

  17. vic says:

    Wow. Normal. No front page photos, no articles about her weight loss or lack of.

  18. Michelle says:

    The blanket under the red catapilliar blanket looks like a very light pink in both pictures I could see it. It could be white and just the light, but it looks pale pink to me.

  19. mia girl says:

    Love this couple.

  20. Nya says:

    Can you imagine if a woman had 4 children from three different relationships?

    I don’t know, they obviously love each other but Stephen Moyer has always come off as really creepy, in that “creepy older man” way, to me.

    • T.C. says:


      Same here.

    • Sweet Dee says:

      Two. Two different relationships. The other children are from his previous wife.

      • Nya says:

        I’m pretty sure he’s never been married before. And it was two different women…

      • Trubie2 says:

        Such a cute couple and Anna looks awesome.
        BTW, this is Stephens first and only marriage. His other two children are older and from two previous relationships . He’s been papped many times with his other children and seems to be a very involved father and close with them.

    • hatsumomo says:

      Anna still counts as a relationship so technically, yeah, four kids by three different women. I can see where Nya is coming from. I’d be a bit hesitant about having a child with someone who has numerous children with different women before me too! Though for sure, getting into a relationship with a partner who already has children is tricky to being with. Why did none of his other relationships work out? is he on good terms with his ex-baby mamas? What is his relationship to his other kids like? Do we know what we’re getting into when starting our family? Will his history repeat itself with me? Too many questions!

      • Nya says:

        There are lots of pictures with his kids, he’s obviously in their life.

        I was talking more in “Hollywood” terms, in that I don’t think an actress could EVER have that many kids with that many different men and still have a career.

  21. Bodhi says:

    Those Aiden & Anis blankets are the BEST!! They made of muslin & are the perfect weight & size for many stages. My 18mo is OBSESSED with them. He drags them around & cuddles them all day long.

  22. Ellie66 says:

    From the blankets I bet it’s a boy and a girl. Sweet couple good for them!

    • Mae East says:

      I have those blankets (yellow bumblebees and orange crabs, for the record) and they’re sold in a four pack of animal prints. I think they’re marketed as gender neutral. Anyway, it really doesn’t feel like a clue to me.

  23. Jessica says:

    Having survived birthing twins (as well as a singleton) and enduring a 6 week stint in the NICU, my heart goes out to them. All that really matters is how things are impacting them. Yes, we’re titillated to find out the sex and names, the whole story, but ultimately it impacts our lives in no way whatsoever! I wish more celebrities didn’t give a crap, and didn’t assume we were all dying to find out this type of information. Their commitment to privacy (reminds me of Isla Fischer and Sascha Baron Cohen) is an indication of integrity and stability.

  24. melior says:

    I’m glad to see Anna happy but I must say this guy really strikes as me as the ‘phoney’, ‘use people to get ahead’ type. He qualified his past relationships as ‘interviewing’. My guess Anna got the ‘part’ because she was famous enough to bring him visibility.

  25. LittleDeadGirl says:

    Love how private they are and how happy they look. All the best to them and the babies.

  26. lucy2 says:

    They both look great, and I admire how private they’ve been able to keep everything.

  27. Camille (TheOriginal) says:

    I love that they look just like a regular couple walking down the street lol. Anna looks fab.

  28. Jen34 says:

    I love how they handle their private life. I hope they are together forever.

  29. Marianne says:

    I like that they’re not pimping their baby out…but I feel that the paparazzi will only hound them out more, so they can get that exclusive “first shot” of the babies. They could always tweet a picture or something. That way they have some control. They can’t keep the children hidden forever. Eventually they will start walking on their own.

  30. muppet_barbershop says:

    Ooooh! They look so happy. This is a breath of fresh air.
