Double-whammy for Desperate Housewives star

Desperate Housewives star Marcia Cross is pregnant with twins.

The 44-year-old actress, who plays uptight Bree Van De Kamp in the Channel 4 show, is due to give birth in April.

She began IVF treatment shortly after marrying businessman Tom Mahoney in June.

Producers are thought to be considering whether to add her pregnancy to the show’s storyline.
