Us Weekly magazine spoke with the couple about their big news and they let the publication know that they are expecting twin girls. This was a planned pregnancy and the couple is extremely happy. Wilson talked about her pregnancy with Us Weekly:
I have always heard women say you just know when you are pregnant and I totally understand that now. Your body, smell, sensitivity and cravings all change and mine did from day one. I found out shortly after a blood test confirmed the results and called Joe immediately, we were both screaming and so loud with excitement from each end of the phone!
2. The Couple Chose the Sex of The Baby
We both wanted girls and we wanted them to be healthy and free of genetic diseases so we chose to do IVF.
Francis chimed in saying:
We chose to have girls. I believe people will finally understand my love, respect and admiration for women. I love girls.
Joe Francis feels that perhaps his being a good father will clear up the misconception that he has no respect for women.
3. Celebrity Friends Are Lending Their Support
Wilson and Francis have a lot of friends in Hollywood, including Melissa Rivers, Mario Lopez, and the Kardashians. Francis told Us Weekly that:
Kourtney (Kardashian) and Scott (Disick) were the first in the Kardashian family we told and they have already given us so much amazing advice … Mario and Courtney Lopez took us baby shopping at Bel Bambini, and Mario is now coaching Joe on fatherhood!
