Earlier this month, actress Jaime Pressly gave birth to twins boys and yesterday the 40-year-old new mom shared the picture of her bundles of joy on Instagram.

The 40-year-old told her twins were totally a surprise … and completely natural: “Twins don’t run on either side of our families so we were completely shocked. This wasn’t IVF or anything like that. It was just a shock, and I’m like, ‘Doctor, that’s impossible!’” 

And, of course, they have the cutest names ever: Leo and Lenon!

Leo is Latin for “lion” and it is climbing in popularity lately. It is currently at #33 on’s baby name list. The name will probably continue to catapult if celebs like Pressly continue to popularize the name. Of cousre, there’s another famous Leo who’s likely inspired a few baby Leos himself.

Lenon, which can be spelled various ways, is a little less popular. It ranks at #582 on’s list, but don’t let that fool you … it has climbed 32 points since 2016!

This is not the first time Jaime Pressly has proven she is a super-cool baby-namer. She also has a 10-year-old son with actor Eric Cubiche, whom she named Dezi James. (Dezi is #13,916 on BabyCenter’s list for boys!)

The actress and her boyfriend Hamzi Hijazi have been dating for six years. The pair met in Hijazi’s shoe store in Santa Monica, California, while she was shopping with girlfriends. Pressly described the moment as “kismet” to
