The actress announced the news she was expecting with her new partner, Steve Toulmin, in March with a photo of her burgeoning bump.
"Older me to younger me- They'll be two babes who come down to meet you. They'll have two different daddies. It won't look like a 'normal' family but there'll be twice the love. Squared," she penned.
"You will watch things get blown apart but you will see them get rebuilt in different forms over very old and deeply known foundations. There is more gentleness. Flowers keep growing out of smashed up concrete.
She then went on to add: "Some days at 38 you will look at it all and feel like the whole thing was rigged and you won some strange lottery. There is always more gentleness. 📸 by @stevetoulmin new feet 🦶🏽on the planet in July ❤️."
