Call it a pre-emptive paparazzi strike. Julia Roberts (search) and her husband, cameraman Danny Moder (search), have released the first photos of their nearly three-month-old twins to People magazine, on newsstands Friday.
"We are releasing these photographs not only to share our happiness, but to ensure the privacy, safety and respect our babies deserve," the couple said in a statement.
The photographs show Roberts with her sleepy-eyed twins: Phinnaeus Walter (Finn) and Hazel Patricia (search). The pictures were taken by Moder near their Taos, N.M. ranch.
People also reports in its new issue that Roberts has shed much of her extra weight thanks to regular Pilates workouts. The actress recently finished lending her voice to a new adaptation of E.B. White's "Charlotte's Web."
The twins were born in Los Angeles on Nov. 28. Roberts, 37, and Moder, 36, have been married since July 2002. They are the couple's first children together.
