Oscar winner Anna Paquin, who plays a telepathic vampire lover on HBO’s True Blood, has given birth to twins.

A spokesperson for Paquin and her husband, True Blood co-star Stephen Moyer, did not reveal the exact birth date or the sex of the children.

'The babies were born a few weeks early, but are in good health and both mom and dad are overjoyed,' the spokesperson said.

Paquin surprised many when she came out as bisexual in 2010. She made the announcement in a Public Service Announcement video promoting the Give a Damn campaign, which features celebrities speaking out for equality.

The actress has since said that she has no regrets about being honest - especially in the context in which she did it.

'I’m sure for some people saying they’re bisexual feels less scary than making a statement that they’re gay,' she told Zooey magazine earlier this year. 'For me, it’s not really an issue because I’m someone who believes being bisexual is actually a thing.'
