It’s been nine months since Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin welcomed their twins, and until now their names have been witheld. The ‘True Blood’ stars finally revealed the names of their children. Their son is named Charlie, while their daughter is Poppy, according to People.
Last night was the premiere of ‘True Blood’ season six, and E! News caught the name-slip. Explaining that elder daughter Lilac was headed off to camp over Father’s Day weekend, Moyer said that he and Paquin, 30, planned to celebrate the special day “hanging out with Charlie and Poppy.”
Speaking to PEOPLE earlier in the week, Moyer, 43, said that he and his wife were keeping their twins out of the spotlight for a reason.
“They came much earlier than we were expecting. They were so fragile in the beginning. We are just trying to protect them,” he tells PEOPLE.
“[We’re] trying to give them as much of a normal upbringing as you can in this town. They didn’t choose to be actors – not yet! Who knows what they’ll be? It’s just a question of wanting to keep that private for them so they can choose.”
Moyer and Paquin, a best supporting actress Academy Award winner in 1994, were married in a sunset Malibu ceremony in August 2010 after he proposed on a Hawaiian beach the year prior.
True Blood returns to HBO on Sunday, June 16.
I think Charlie and Poppy are freaking adorable names for twins!
