“5.11.22 Our boys! Remember Remember x”, she penned sweetly, hinting at the infamous Guy Fawkes rhyme. 

Jessica has decided to keep the names of her baby sons private, choosing not to include them in her caption.

Since revealing the news of her babies’ arrivals, the new mum has been flooded with congratulations and well-wishes.

“Oh heaven!”, commented Tuppence Middleton, who plays Lucy Smith in both film adaptations of Downton Abbey. “You look gorgeous Jessie. And so do they”.

Jessica first revealed her pregnancy to the world in September, when she walked the red carpet at the Venice Film Festival.

“IVF has made me even more aware of just how much women are capable of and what we can achieve whilst going through pain and heartbreak,” she wrote in March of this year.

“Your body is not the enemy. Love it. No matter what,” she continued. “Sending love and support to every woman I have ever met and all the ones I haven’t but know what this is.”

Congratulations to Jessica and Ziggy on their new arrivals!
