Jaime Pressly is pregnant and expecting twin boys

Virgin America & Sir Richard Branson celebrate New flights

Actress Jamie Pressly, who to me will always be the woman who personified “white trash Barbie” perfection on My Name is Earl, is expecting twins with her longtime boyfriend, Hamzi Hijazi.

The 39-year-old actress, who can currently be seen on the CBS sitcom Mom, announced the new arrivals on Twitter, posting a photo holding up a positive pregnancy test and asking, “Guess who’s pregnant with twins?!”

Jamie, who has a 10-year-old son, Dezi (with her ex, DJ Eric Calvo), told People Magazine that “Twins don’t run on either side of our families so we were completely shocked. This wasn’t IVF or anything like that. It was just a shock, and I’m like, ‘Doctor, that’s impossible!’ ”

Fortunately, Dezi can’t wait to play big brother, Jamie said her son is “beside himself,” adding, “He’s been begging Hamzi and I to give him 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. He’s constantly kissing my belly.”

While Jamie was pregnant with Dezi, her character in My Name is Earl was also pregnant. I don’t watch Mom, but would the show’s producers be able to write Jamie’s real-life pregnancy into the show, or will she just have to hide behind obnoxiously large purses and stand behind high counters until she gives birth this fall? I’ll leave them to worry about that. And hey, congrats, Jamie and Hazmi.

    Congratulations. She seems like a genuinely nice person

    • Nancy says:

      She does. As a twin myself, I always smile when I hear someone is having twins. It’s an experience no one can explain unless they’re one half of the duo!

  2. Gene123 says:

    Congratulations! I hope she has a healthy easy pregnancy

  3. Lindy79 says:

    OK here goes…I watch Mom. Hear me out, Alison Janey….

    But anyway, her character had an arc where she was trying through IVF to get pregnant, she decided not to after 1 failed attempt so they can write it in easily I’d say

  4. Lee1 says:

    They actually had a whole storyline on Mom last season about her character trying to get pregnant as a single mom by choice but she had a miscarriage. She is currently fostering a teenage girl but I could still see them writing this pregnancy in to the show.

  5. Barrett says:

    I somehow thought she was like 35, maybe she just feels like she’s been in the background forever

  6. commonsense says:

    congratulations to her. “I loved my name is Earl”", did not miss an episode.

    • AnnaKist says:

      Same here, commonsense. When we first got My Name Is Earl down here in Aus, people couldn’t get enough of it. She was great in it. I hope she has an easy and healthy pregnancy and delivery.

      It’s so refreshing to see a Hollywood lady without pumped-up duck lips! 👄

    • detritus says:

      She was so good in MNIE.
      And that show is such an easy watching gem.

    So these celebs who partner with pregnancy test brands – how exactly does that happen? Are the brands stalking celebs trash or obgyn appointments? Or is the first call from the celeb’s team to different brands? Who reaches out to whom?

    But otherwise, much congrats to her. She’s not the best actress but there’s something about her I always liked.

  8. JA says:

    Hopefully she’s telling the truth about it being natural ONLY because gives me hope that i can wait a few more years before my baby making days are done. Just married 33yr old who’s getting the “so kids??” Question…I kinda want to enjoy being just the 2 of us for a year or 2… Anyways congrats to her and her bf, safe healthy pregnancy prayers to her!

      I’m pregnant at 39. Totally natural, took me 2 months of half heartedly trying. My first was when I was 37 and I missed taking my pill 2 days in a row, It is totally possible to have a healthy natural pregnancy after 35. If you’re in good health and especially if you have a family history of women having babies later in life there is no need to worry.

      Back in the days before birth control it was totally normal for women to be having their last babies into their 40s.

    • fruitloops says:

      I had my first baby at 31 and since I still don’t want another baby I was afraid that I would be too old when I finally decide to go for baby number 2, at 35-36 by my projections, until my friend told me she was pregnant with her first baby. She was 37 then, gave birth at 38. She had normal, no problem, easy pregnancy,had a healthy baby, and says it took them 2 months of trying to concieve.

    • Jag says:

      One of my friends had a natural pregnancy with no complications and gave birth to a healthy baby boy. Her age at delivery? 48! It’s rare, but it happens. :)

  9. Andrea says:

    Yes, why do some people think ur uterus falls out at 35 or something. F$&$&g annoying.

  10. Happy21 says:

    I really like her but could have sworn she was in her 40′s and not the same age as me! Good for her. Wishing her a happy and healthy pregnancy :)

    Biology nerd here. The closer you are to 40, the greater your chances of twins. It doesn’t matter if it’s in your family or not, as you age your body tends to up the amount of FSH needed in order to get you to ovulate. This greatly increases the risk of your body releasing multiple eggs.

    Some stats say that in your 20′s your risk of twins is about 1/80 or 1/60 depending; whereas as you approach 40 it’s closer to 1/4 odds!!! That’s a HUGE increase in probability.

    • 5thHouse says:

      That’s wonderful, pinetree13! I’m 43, I found out I am pregnant three days before Auntie Red was to visit. Don’t tell my bf, but I hope it’s boy and girl fraternal twins!

  12. Bibi says:

    I loved Jaime as Joy on My Name is Earl, along w Randy, Carolina and Crabman. Matter of fact I still watch it so often on Netflix AND I have the collection of the series. So, I love it, right ? They’re so talented, natural funny actors. And I looove Earl and Randy’s brotherly love.
    Congratulations to Jaime on her pregnancy, hoping is healthy. Twins ? The more the merrier! 👼👼. 💗💙 . 💝💝. 💙💙

    I fell pregnant at 37 after trying for only 3 months AND I have a history of endometriosis and PCOS. Shocked even myself!

  14. Exeter1990 says:

    Who is Hamzi and what does he do? There is nothing online about him at all except in photos with Jaime. Nothing. As if he had info about him ‘cleansed’. It’s almost impossible to be his age and there be absolutely nothing about you unless……idk
