Congratulations – times two! – to The Killing star Jamie Anne Allman and her husband Marshall Allman. The couple announced today that they are expecting twins!
“We were ecstatic to find out we were pregnant and overjoyed to learn that they were fraternal twins,” Jamie Anne and Marshall tell PEOPLE. “Twins run in both of our families so we were prepared for the possibility, but we know we’re gonna need all the prayers and help we can get.”
Both actors – Marshall has starred in TV hits such as True Blood and Prison Break – the expectant parents chose a unique way to share the happy news with family and friends.
“Both of us being actors, we made a film,” they reveal. “It made it super fun and easy to share the news in a surprising way across the country.”
The babies on the way will be the first for the pair, who tied the knot in 2006.
