Hugh Hefner’s youngest son Cooper and his wife Scarlett Byrne celebrate the arrival of twins.
Harry Potter actress Scarlett announced the news on her Instagram page on Tuesday.
Mother Scarlett wrote: “‘My heart grew twice as much as Cooper this weekend and I welcomed our daughters, Marigold Adele Hefner and Blossom Pearl Hefner into the world.
“Our home is full of love with our three daughters and we couldn’t be happier.”
The couple, who tied the knot in 2019, are also parents to daughter Betsy Rose, who is now 15 months.
Their first daughter Betsy is named after Cooper’s late grandmother Betsy Aldridge-Conrad, who passed away in July 2020.
At the time, they shared a statement: “We are overwhelmed with joy to share that our daughter, Betsy Rose Hefner, has arrived.
“We look forward to being home and spending time together as a family for the next few days and weeks.”
They announced last November that they would be adding to their family.
“Scarlett and I will be welcoming two new members to the family this spring. We couldn’t be happier as we wait for our twins to arrive,” Cooper wrote, before wishing everyone “a very Happy Thanksgiving!”
He said, “My grandmother meant the world to both Scarlett and me.”
Scarlett rose to fame in her teens playing Slytherin student Pansy Parkinson in the Harry Potter film franchise.
She began dating Cooper after he reached out to her on Facebook, five years after attending the same US college as her former co-star Emma Watson.
Following in his father’s footsteps, Cooper joined the family business at age 21 and later became Playboy Enterprises’ chief of global partnerships and chief creative officer.
When Hugh died at the infamous Playboy Mansion in September 2017 at the age of 91, he made sure all of his children were taken care of.
The mogul left behind his four children from his first two marriages a huge sum of money. He also left a Hollywood Hills mansion to his third wife Crystal Hefner to make sure she didn’t miss out, which she sold for $5 million two years later.
Since his death, Cooper’s late father has come under fire with a number of ex-Playboy Bunnies who speak of scorching times with Hef.
Blonde twins Karissa and Kristina Shannon moved in with Hefner and his girlfriends and was paid $1,000 a week to star on the hit reality show Girls Next Door, which documented the lives of the women in the $100 million mansion.

Kristina said they were regularly given drugs as part of Hefner’s bizarre bedtime routine, before having group sex with the retiree and a bunch of other women.
Karissa said they had been told the drugs — including weed and quaaludes — would help them feel more at ease.

“He got a pair of silk pajamas from Italy and we put them on. He pulled out this big pill like a horse would take. It was quaalude, which we found he used all the time.”
“He told us that the drugs would help with our anxiety. We smoked some weed.
“We felt frozen at first, but after a while the pill made us limp and fuzzy,” Karissa told The Mirror.
