Holly Hunter, who voiced the role of superhero mom Helen Parr in "The Incredibles," will have maternal experience to draw on if there's a sequel.

The Oscar-winning actress has given birth to twins, People magazine reported Tuesday, citing Hunter's publicist. Telephone messages left Wednesday for publicist Nicole Caruso were not immediately returned.

People reported that the children are the first for Hunter and her partner, British actor Gordon MacDonald.

The 47-year-old Hunter won a lead actress Oscar in 1993 for her role in "The Piano."
