Anna Paquin is expecting with twins with her "True Blood" co-star Stephen Moyer.

That's according to a widely cited statement from Sam Trammell, who also stars in the smash-hit HBO series about vampires in the American deep south.

Trammell, who plays Sam Merlotte on the show and is also a father of twins, told Us Weekly magazine: "I'm so excited for them. We sent them a special gift. It's so interesting that 'True Blood' has become like, the 'twins' show."

When asked about the news of twins by Mail Online, a spokesperson for Paquin, 29, who plays Sookie Stackhouse on "True Blood," replied: "No comment."

The LA Times wrote that Paquin and Moyer announced the pregnancy in April, after near the end of filming for Season 5 of "True Blood."
