Actress Gabourey “Gabby” Sidibe is officially a mom of two!

According to reports, Sidibe, 41, welcomed twins with her husband, Brandon Frankel, in April. The couple named their baby boy Cooper and their girl Maya.

“Brandon always wanted to name a son Cooper, so we can call him ‘Coop,’ and Maya was named shortly before our baby moon to the Mayan Riviera in Mexico,” Sidibe said. “Both twins have traditional West African middle names after members of my family.”

The actress said her newborns are "both extremely strong and hilarious,” but they “have yet to really interact with each other.”

“Cooper will sometimes speak for Maya and alert us that she’s about to spit up. Maya loves her name being sung to her and is the queen of comedic timing, and Cooper loves his sleep and has the funniest facial expressions,” Sidibe said. “They both love cuddling with Mom and Dad.”

Sidibe recalled having a surprise delivery.

“We originally were going in for a routine appointment, only to be told the twins would be coming later that day and not when originally planned,” she said.

The actress said she and her husband are excited to raise their little ones.

“We’re excited for outfits and getting them dressed up, for sing-alongs, trips and to explore, and raising them to be good people,” Sidibe shared.
