Sherri Saum Pregnant Expecting Twins Jason LaVeris/FilmMagic

Shortly after Sherri Saum discovered she was pregnant, the actress got the surprise of a lifetime: she was expecting twins!

“Thrilled” to be having a baby together, Saum and her husband Kamar de los Reyes, who formerly starred with her on One Life to Live, went for a second ultrasound and were told some unexpected news.

“We were like, ‘Awesome — a baby!’ And then the next ultrasound the doctor said, ‘Uh … looks like there’s a freeloader in there hiding,'” The Fosters star, 39, told Access Hollywood.

“I was just in shock for about two weeks. My husband and I were like, ‘This is really happening!'”

Now five months along, the mom-to-be is anticipating the babies’ May arrival. “They say with twins they may come early, so I don’t know,” she says, adding that they know the sex of the babies but aren’t sharing.

Until then, Saum can be found getting her fill of her favorite pregnancy treat. “[My morning sickness is] totally gone and all I want to do is eat bread all day long,” she jokes.

The winter premiere of The Fosters airs Monday at 9 p.m. on ABC Family.

OMG I didn’t know they were married IRL!!!

Angela on

Did they play in something together, Anonymous? Because she is married to a woman in The Fosters. I wasn’t sure if that is the show you were thinking of. 🙂

Congratulations Sherri. Best of luck with the rest of your pregnancy.

When I was pregnant I told him “If it’s twins, I’m not doing it.” Zero desire to have twins.

Congratulations to them! Really hope they write this into The Fosters.

So you would have terminated if it were twins, “opinionated”? How bizarre…… Maybe you wouldn’t have wanted a boy, or whichever one you didn’t have, what would you have done? Weird view, at least to me.

I can relate to that shock of learning it’s two for one LOL I got pregnant in March of 2012 and when my doctor told me I was having twins, I was stunned for a long week LOL There are no cases on my husband’s family or in mine, so we never considered it could happen to us.

Now Matthew Jonathan and Gabriel Ryan are 13 months and are the BEST thing to have happened to us. Twins are double the work work, but it’s also double the love, double the fun and double the cuddles, hugs and kisses. Congratulations to Sherri and her hubby!

Twins are huge in my family. My grandparents had 3 sets. We even have a set of triplets. When I got pregnant, I told my husband not to be surprised if there is more than one. Luckily, we only had one. I’m not sure we could handle two at once. Our son has enough energy for 3 kids at times. Congrats to the happy couple!

Lyanna on

Congrats! Twins rule, it is known.

Trix- I doubt it, seeing as how shocked she was to discover she was having twins.

Anyway, congrats to them!

Who? PEOPLE: consider a “who?!” Reaction button to accompany the others. It would be appreciated.

meghan on

Lillie, why should People accomodate the fact that you are too stupid to use Google?

Beth on

Meghan NASTY MUCH! What a witch!

Anonymous on

Lillie- That’s not neccesary- because PEOPLE always explains who the people they are talking about are in this articles (for example, in this article it says quite clearly that Sherri is a TV actress who has starred on One Life to Live among other shows).

Anonymous on

Beth- Actually, meghan has a point (though I WILL agree that it wasn’t neccesary for her to call Lillie stupid!).

Angela, they were a couple on OLTL and had a child together on the show. In typical soap opera fashion I believe she went crazy tried to kill him and her character was killed off.

Charli on

I always wanted to be a twin. So cool.

charlotte on

I like you.
