But after the actress battled a bad sinus infection, she had a growing suspicion that she might be pregnant.

“I went and got a Clearblue test and then had Hamzi go back to the store and get about five more because I was like, ‘Oh, my God!'” she exclusively told Us

“We were in the ultrasound and we just wanted to hear the heartbeat for the first time and much to our surprise, there were two heartbeats. I didn’t understand what I was looking at on the screen because there were two sacs and two little heartbeats and I’m like, ‘What exactly are we looking at? Is everything all right?’ We were in shock,” she said.
