Kristen Wiig has let slip the names of her eight-month-old twins - in the end credits of her latest film

The 47-year-old Bridesmaids star and Wonder Woman 1984 actor Avi Rothman welcomed their first children via a surrogate in June last year and have been strictly private about the twins idenitites.

But in the end credits to her latest film Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar, Wiig thanks, "Avi, Luna and Shiloh."

The revelation of the twins names comes just a week after Wiig let slip in an interview that she and Rothman, 48, had married in secret - by referring to him as her husband.

She told Howard Stern on his SiriusXM radio show: "Besides the fact that we are where we are, it's hard to not feel the s**t and struggle that's going on, in my home I'm very lucky that I have these two babies and my husband. They make it all better, and it's changed my life."

Wiig and Rothman began dating in 2016 and became engaged in 2019.

The actor has previously opened up about her three struggle to conceive through IVF, before the couple turned to a surrogate to help them have their twins.

Wiig said: “Emotionally, spiritually and medically, it was probably the most difficult time in my life. I wasn’t myself.

“There are so many emotions that go with it - you’re always waiting by the phone and getting test results, and it was just bad news after bad news. Occasionally there would be a good month, but then it was just more bad news. There was a lot of stress and heartache.”

The Saturday Night Live star previously dated The Strokes drummer Fabrizio Moretti between 2011 and 2013. Before that she was married to actor Hayes Hargrove from 2005 to 2009.

Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar, which also stars Jamie Dornan, tells the story of two best friends who leave their small town for first time to go on holiday to Florida, and get caught up in a crime caper.
