In an exclusive shoot and interview with OK! Magazine, Lucy Pargeter introduced her beautiful twin girls for the first time, revealing their names to be Missy Mabel and Betsey Maggie.
Lucy also opened up about not breastfeeding the twins, who were born on 13 April.
She said: “I didn’t breastfeed with Lola [her 11 year old daughter] because she couldn’t latch on, so I said I’d try this time, but because they were born early, my body didn’t know it was supposed to produce milk as it hadn’t gone through the usual labour process.

“We did try and latch them on but it wasn’t until a couple of days later that the milk came in, so they were on the bottle in hospital and we kept it that way.
“I take my hat off to people who breastfeed twins – it’s hard enough bottle feeding them!
“It would’ve been nice if I could’ve done it, even just at the beginning, but it wasn’t to be, unfortunately.”

The Emmerdale actress welcomed her twins with fiancé Rudio Coleano through a caesarean, and the 40 year old revealed she wanted to watch the procedure but was left disappointed she couldn’t see it, as there was a screen over her stomach.
She explained: “It was a planned Caesarean as the girls were both breech. I got to 37 weeks – which is when they usually want to take out twins.
“I wanted to watch the whole thing but they put a screen up when you’re having a C-section and it couldn’t be lowered quite enough for me to see.

“In some hospitals there are mirrors on the ceiling so you can see what’s going on, but that wasn’t the case in mine.
“I was gutted I didn’t get to watch them being born. You feel everything with a natural birth and I couldn’t with a C-section, so I would’ve liked to watch it.”
