Jordana Brewster Is ‘Enamored’ with the Idea of Having Twins

Jordana Brewster has babies on the brain – yes, you read that right: plural.

The Dallas star, 32, who has been married to movie producer Andrew Form since 2007, tells Latina she “definitely” wants two kids and is “enamored” by the idea of having twins.

“My dad was a twin, so it runs in the family,” she explains. “Fingers crossed. We’re thinking about having kids but I don’t know when it’ll happen. I feel very ready now.”

When the couple does eventually expand their family, the children will be raised in a loving home.

“We FaceTime all of the time,” Brewster says, of keeping the romance alive long distance. “We love that. There are times when I just say, ‘I need to see you now.’ And so we FaceTime a lot, or I surprise him and visit him or he does the same.”

“It’s super important … Couples shouldn’t be apart for too long,” she explains. “We’ve been married for five years now and we know how important that is because otherwise you just lose touch with each other.”

A big part of their bond has come from the way Form inspires his wife on a professional level.

“It’s so amazing to have a husband in the business who can challenge me and we can talk about his work and my work and understand each other in that way,” Brewster says. “I love getting his feedback and he likes getting mine. And of course, that has pushed me more to consider producing in the future.”

And she’s not just talking about babies!

“’My dad was a twin, so it runs in the family,’ she explains. ‘Fingers crossed.'”

Educate yourself, Jordana! The fact that your dad was a twin has absolutely NO BEARING on whether or not you will! The twin gene does not pass through men, so there’s no way you could have gotten that gene from your dad or your paternal grandmother!

dsfg- You’re the one that needs to educate yourself. The gene for hyperovulation can be passed down by BOTH females and males. It just doesn’t get expressed in men, because they don’t ovulate! If you don’t believe me, google it. :)

Anonymous, a woman whose father is a twin is no more likely to have twins than a woman whose father isn’t a twin. Both of my grandmothers had twins, and both times I was pregnant my doctors told me I could only get the twin gene from my maternal grandmother.

That only makes her daughters more likely to have twins. If she has a son, then his daughters are more likely to have twins. If Jordana’s dad was an identical twin, that has no bearing on anything, because identical twins are just a freak thing. No genetic factor involved.

I am often surprised by how mean people can sometimes be on this board. You’d think having a baby- or two- would be something inspiring and joyful to talk about.

dsfg- Well, your doctor was wrong (which isn’t surprising. A lot of people seem to be mis-informed about twinning, doctors included!). Here’s what About.com has to say about the hyperovulation gene (the important paragraph for this discussion is the second one under “Is there a twin gene?”):
