Julia Roberts' 'amazing' twins
13:30 14 February 2005
Julia Roberts has proudly shown off her baby twins for the first time - describing them as "amazing".
The Hollywood beauty, who gave birth to Hazel and Phinnaeus last November, gave the world a glimpse of her beloved babies by sending photos, taken by Julia's husband Danny Moder, to America's 'Oprah Winfrey Show'.
As well as the pictures, Julia wrote an emotional note, saying: "The babies are amazing. The way they stare into your eyes, their exuberant smiles, how they begin each day all warm and sleepy, smelling of promise.
"I suppose I never realised it before - babies aren't really born of their parents, they're born of every kind word, loving gesture, hope and dream their parents ever had. Bliss."
Julia - who conceived the twins through fertility treatment after having trouble getting pregnant - recently said she had never been happier since marrying cameraman Danny and giving birth to the twins.
Julia - who married Danny in 2002 - said at the time: "Danny really shines the light for me. He just makes me feel so comfortable. I've been lucky because I have known happy times in my life, but right now it's not just that I'm happy, I'm perfectly content, too."
