London Morning host Rebecca Zandbergen gives birth to twins

Just hours after interviewing the Prime Minister, London Morning host Rebecca Zandbergen landed another big guest of sorts. Or more precisely, she invited two into the world, giving birth to twins last Friday morning.

Just hours after interviewing the prime minister, London Morning host Rebecca Zandbergen landed another big guest of sorts. Or more precisely, she invited two into the world, giving birth to twins last Friday morning.

"Everyone, the nurses here, thought it was quite a riot to know that I interviewed the prime minister and then was in labour," said Zandbergen from her hospital bed Monday morning.

The identical twin boys arrived a little earlier than expected at 31 weeks and five days.

But the nurses tell Zandbergen they're acting like 36-week-old babies.

"They're doing really really well. They're already off any breathing apparatus," said Zandbergen.

Names? Tougher when you have to come up with two!

As for names? It's a work in progress.

"We have one name we're keeping under wraps until we come up with a second name," said Zandbergen.

Zandbergen and her husband Drew also have a daughter Joan, who is almost two years old.

Zandbergen says the twins, who came early at about 32 weeks, are doing quite well.
"Unfortunately she's too young to go into neonatal intensive care unit, but she'll see them when they come home," said Zandbergen.

Zandbergen said she'd love tips on raising three kids in London under the age of two. You can tweet her at @RebeccaZandberg.

London Morning will announce who will be hosting the show for the next year in the coming days.
