Marcia Cross wins the lottery

12/01/2006 at 03:27 PM ET

Marciacross02 The baby lottery, that is.  To say that Marcia Cross is extremely grateful that she is pregnant with her fraternal twin babies is an understatement!   Marcia told Extra,  "I won the lottery at my age to have two."  Marcia announced on The Ellen DeGeneres Show that she was expecting not just one but two babies with new husband Tom Mahoney, and explained, "I was sort of blown away that I was having twins, so I just needed a minute to deal with it."

Despite the rumors of placenta previa that the National Enquirer started or other issues with the pregnancy, Marcia says,"I haven’t had a thing," she says, "I am absolutely, 100 percent fine."  However, she does confess that being pregnant with twins has its challenges in respect to the extra weight and girth. "It’s hard to carry around all that weight. I wake up feeling like me and then I step on the ground and I’m like, whose body is that walking to the bathroom?"

She also told Extra, "I was really freaked out and I was terrified – what if I can’t be a good mother to two and somebody would always be feeling left out?"

Marcia is due in April.

If you are the parent of multiples (or pregnant with multiples), did you or do you ever worry that one of your children feels left out?

I have twins (and 2 others!). It is scary having multiples because no one ever tells you that it is possible to have healthy, full term babies..I had the same worries about leaving one of them out that Marcia has but you just do what you can and worry about that later..Most times, kids will tell you wha they need and when they need it !

I’m a nanny for twin boys. One is very fussy and one is always happy. I always feel bad because the happy one never gets as much attention as the fussy one. He gets held most of the day and the happy one has to entertain himself.

I have a friend who’s got twins and she often faces the same challenge that LizB was mentioning. Ella is extremely high-maintenance, always needs SOMETHING and is not above screaming for it. Emma, on the other hand, is very self-sufficient and doesn’t hardly make a peep. It is difficult to not feel like Emma gets left out.

I was just wondering how this pregnancy will play out on DH? Anyone know?

I have identical boys and an older daughter, and to me it’s no different having twins then having multiple children. I try my best to divide my attention between my children equally…not as easy as it sounds sometimes!
