Rebecca’s pretty and looks great, she will probably give birth in december instead of january cause twins usually come early. Can’t wait to see the babies

She looks smaller than she did in that photo you guys posted a few days ago. Whatever her size, she looks stunningly gorgeous, and look at Jerry, he’s a proud daddy-to-be! Beautiful couple! I can’t wait to see their girls.

Judging by her bump in this photo & the one you showed the other day, I don’t think she will carry to anywhere near her due date. I think we’ll be seeing these babies around Christmas Day. My friend had twin boys who had to be delivered 6 weeks early because her body just couldn’t cope. Good luck to Rebecca, it’s hard enough just carrying one baby!

As ever, Rebecca looks gorgeous! If the baby girls look anything like mom, then Jerry won’t be letting horrid, smelly boys near them for decades!!

How do they know the twins are fraternal?

Mandy on

I think that shirt before maybe was a bit big or something. She did look a lot bigger then in this picture.

I wouldn’t know how big someone should be for 5 months but you have to remember there’s 2 babies in there and they both need room.

She looks stunning!

Lisa on

Nicole..i’d assume by u/s. We found out ours were fraternal around week 20.

Chloe on

She looks lovely, but her bump looks a lot smaller in this picture…just goes to show how you dress definitely affects how big your bump appears!


It’s true she looks smaller than the last time
Jerry looks very protective with her they are a wonderful
couple!I’m italian and when I see her in this picture I say”meravigliosa”(it means stunning,beautiful)
I love her my favorite charcter is Alexis in “Ugly Betty”

Elyse on

I had a feeling that shirt she was in the other day made her look bigger than she really was. In that pic the side view of her bump looked bigger than the front view.

Anyway, she looks fantastic. They seem like such a great couple, and they are both so excited about the twins. I wish them both the best of luck.

Fraternal twins are conceived in separate sacs (2 eggs)whereas, identical twins share only one. I am a fraternal twin and don’t look like my sister at all.

Talk about a stunningly looking couple. Oh, those daughters are going to be heartbreakers.

Rebecca looks great for being only five-months along! She could have done without that strange and clunky looking necklace. I agree with the other posters that think the babies will be quite a bit early and arrive in December instead of January. Can’t imagine how she’ll be at 9 months if she’s like this at 5!

My mother was told my twin sister and I were fraternal at birth due to two amniotic sacs. However, we have always looked like identical twins (we’re 50 now) and just had a DNA test a few years ago. We weren’t surprised at all to find we were identical. 2 sacs don’t always mean fraternal twins.

Anne on

Fraternal twins can look alike but not identical so that it would be hard to tell the difference. I looked like my mother and my sister looked like our dad. I have yet to see fraternal twins that looked identical!!

Jane on

They are very cute together!

Kendra on

I LOVE LOVE LOVE her shirt. Does anyone know where I can get it? I think she is always gorgeous! Even when she’s not made up. Those are going to be some beautiful babies with parents like those 2.

Brandi on

It is a dress. I’m not sure where you can get it though. It’s definitely gorgeous and Rebecca looks great in it.

Gigi on

correct me if im wrong but i could have sworn i heard that mary kate and ashley olsen were fraternal twins…..and they have always looked pretty darn identical to me!

AshM on

Gigi – I was just thinking the same thing. I have heard Mary-Kate and Ashley insist that they are fraternal twins…I don’t understand how that could be!

Kellly on

I must disagree with the “fraternal twins never look alike.”

There are no twins in my husband’s family, yet the kids are spitting images of each other.

I imagine that there is a definite possibility of “identical” fraternal twins (given strong genetic traits)

CelebBabyLover on

Alice- My thoughts exactly! My guess is that they don’t actually know whether the babies are identical or fraternal. I actually sort of hope they are identical, as that will hopefully stop all of the “They used fertility treatments!” comments.

Only one type of fertility treatments can result in identical twins, and that’s ICSI (Intercytoplasmic Sperm Injection, or something like that), which isn’t used very often (basically, a sperm is injected directly into an egg. Therefore, because the egg “shell” has techincally been tampered with, the possibility of identical twins is higher).

Other than that, identical twins are pure luck (they don’t run in families, either).

Anyway, as for Rebecca’s “bump” size…She looks right on target for a January due date with twins to me. Angelina Jolie was about the same size, if not a bit bigger, when she was at about the same stage of pregnancy with Knox and Viv as Rebecca is now (assuming she really was due in August).

Also, remember how huge J-Lo got with Max and Emme? Not only that, but, from what I’ve heard, it doesn’t sound like Max and Emme were even that premature!

Therefore, Rebecca could very easily get much, much bigger before January! That said, she probably will deliver in December, since twins do tend to come earlier.

CelebBabyLover on

Kellly- I know exactly what you’re saying! My mom looks quite a bit like some of her cousins. While they don’t look like twins, they definitely do look like sisters!

If cousins can look like siblings, than it’s very possible that siblings (whether fraternal twins or just plain siblings) can sometimes look like identical twins!🙂

Bancie1031 on

She looks beautiful here. Also her bump doesn’t look as big here to me as it did in that other picture.

Kristina on

OMG!! I doubt Nicole Kidman was that big at 9 months… but these are twins of course. I still think she is quite big
