Surprise! Hugh Hefner’s youngest son, Cooper Hefner, and his wife, actress Scarlett Byrne, are expecting twins.
They announced the pregnancy on their respective Instagram accounts by uploading a sweet family snapshot that showed the 31-year-old Harry Potter actress cradling her tummy.
Scarlett and I will be welcoming two new members to the family this spring. We couldn’t be happier as we await the arrival of our twins, ” Cooper captioned, before wishing, “ A very happy Thanksgiving to everyone! ”
Scarlett wrote how grateful she is for herself and Cooper’s ‘growing family’ before revealing to her fans that they would be welcoming ‘twins in early 2022’.

“My grandmother meant the world to Scarlett as well as me,” Cooper told the outlet, after expressing how “filled with such joy” they were to become parents for the first time.
Cooper is the youngest of Hugh Hefner’s four children, his daughter Christie, 69, and sons David, 66, and Marston, 31.

He married the model, now 59, in 1989 and they divorced in 2009.
Rather than immerse himself in the Playboy empire, Cooper has worked as an Air Force reservist since March 2019.
Just last month, the 30-year-old completed an “extraordinarily rewarding” US deployment to Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst in New Jersey, where he helped Afghan refugees resettle after arriving in the United States.
“Deploying to support families beginning a new chapter of life in the United States has been extraordinarily rewarding,” wrote Hefner, who shared images of the deployment with his Instagram followers. “Brilliant days ahead for our Afghan friends.”
