Jackie also revealed she finds it difficult to shower and move around after having a C-section, and needs her husband Ben Gillies to help her. 

She then spoke of her ‘unconditional love’ for her two babies, who have brought her so much joy. 

‘I just kept thinking these babies are so cute,’ she said. ‘Are they actually mine?’

Elsewhere, Jackie revealed she had suffered a miscarriage in the past, which is why she was so private about her IVF journey.

The celebrity fortune teller took to Instagram earlier this month to share the happy news of the twins’ birth, sharing a photo of the babies’ feet.

‘They’re here. OMG they are so cute. My heart is full,’ she wrote in the caption.
