A source told American magazine In Touch: "They'll be having a boy and a girl.

"Because she took fertility treatment to help her ovulate, her babies are fraternal.

"They're ecstatic. She can't wait."

As she walked around New Orleans she carried her daughter Shiloh, 22 months, and held the hand of her three-year-old adopted daughter Zahara.

Her two adopted sons, Maddox, six, and Pax, four, tucked into bags of snacks as they followed her back to the family home.
